Human microRNA targets

Human microRNA targets


The human miRNA targets have been revised since the publication of "Human microRNA targets" in PLoS Biology, we have explored the effect of modified rules for scoring miRNA:target matches. The modified rules include: .
  • reducing the number of G:U wobbles
  • increase the high match scale factor from 2 to 4 at position 2-8 from 5' end of miRNA (rather than position 1-11)
We recommend the latest list of targets for planning experiments. As new rules for miRNA-target recognition are discovered, we'll incorporate them and will make further updates available here. Stay tuned. Send us your comments/suggestions: email mirnatargets at cbio dot mskcc dot org
