Interestingly rmi-miR-79*, rmi-miR-281* and rmi-miR-993* are expressed at significantly higher levels than their mature counterparts suggesting that some of the currently annotated mature miRNAs in reference databases may correspond to miRNA* sequences or in some lineages like R. microplus miRNA* sequences become the primary transcript from the miRNA/miRNA* duplex. [score:3]
In cattle ticks we observed co -expression of 15 mature and complementary star sequences including rmi-miR-10, rmi-miR-71, rmi-miR-993 and rmi-miR-5308 that are expressed in all cattle tick life stages evaluated in this study (Table 2). [score:3]
These findings suggest that R. microplus miRNA* sequences may play regulatory roles similar to their mature counterparts and this view is further supported by the significantly higher expression level of rmi-miR-79*, rmi-miR-281* and rmi-miR-993* as compared to their mature miRNA complementary sequences (Additional file 3).
