In the mosquitoes A. albopictus and C. quinquefasciatus, the most highly expressed miRNA is miR-184, and these two species shared three out of ten most abundant miRNAs in B. germanica libraries: miR-184, miR-275, and miR-8 [13]. [score:3]
More than 95% of the reads of miR-1, miR-8, miR-252, miR-276b, and miR-9a were obtained from the WB-6 library, and the catalogue of known miRNAs is richer in the WB-6 library as miR-317, miR-993a, miR-34, miR-14, miR-315, miR-iab-4, miR-375, miR-190 and miR-iab-4as-5p are present in this library but not in Ov-A. Conversely, only miR-12 is present in the Ov-A library but not in the WB-6 (Figures 2, 7A, B). [score:1]
Some of the known miRNAs have been found as the most abundant ones in other insect species, such as miR-1, miR-275, miR-276 and miR-8 in L. migratoria [20]; and miR-1, miR-8, miR-276a and miR-263a in B. mori [19]. [score:1]
Moreover, a number of miRNA*s detected in the B. germanica libraries are also present in those of L. migratoria (miR-281*, miR-10*, miR-8*) [20] and B. mori (miR-10*, miR-281*) [19], [41]. [score:1]
miR8* was the most abundant (ca. [score:1]
Interestingly, some of these miRNA* (like miR-8*, 276-5p* and miR-993a*) have roughly the same or even higher number of reads than their respective mature miRNA. [score:1]

miR-8-5p and miR-2a-3p act as molecular regulators that tune the chitin biosynthesis pathway in response to 20E [45]. [score:2]
For example, miR-8-5p and miR-2a-3p negatively regulate membrane-bound trehalase and phosphoacetylglucosamine mutase of the chitin biosynthesis pathway, leading to a significant reduction in survival rate along with a molting defect phenotype in the hemipteran insect Nilaparvata lugens [23].
