Abstract: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been shown to regulate gene expression through both translational attenuation and degradation of messenger RNAs (mRNAs). Though these small noncoding RNAs are predicted to play a signicant role in development, differentiation, and disease etiology, validation of miRNA targets remains a challenge. miRNA mimics and inhibitors are valuable tools for elucidating the roles of miRNAs. Here we have transfected a human liver cell line alternately with a miRNA mimic and inhibitor to miR-122 and analyzed mRNA expression changes by whole genome microarray. By examining the overlap of messages down-regulated by miRNA mimics and up-regulated by miRNA inhibitors, we robustly identify miRNA-regulated messages, many of which have canonical seed matches and some which are not identied by standard target prediction programs.Summary: By examining the overlap of messages down-regulated by miRNA mimics and up-regulated by miRNA inhibitors, we robustly identify miRNA-regulated messages, many of which have canonical seed matches and some which are not identied by standard target prediction programs.References: D.
