Complications in mammalian microRNA target prediction.

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

In this chapter, we review evidence that at least three different types of microRNA (miRNA)-messenger RNA (mRNA) target interactions exist in mammals: short seeds, long seeds, and "perfect" hits (allowing G:U matches). Because new types of miRNAs are still being discovered, this list may not yet be complete.
