Title
Computational identification of 48 potato microRNAs and their targets
Abstract

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a new family of small RNA molecules known in animals and plants, whose conservation among species suggests that they bear conserved biological functions. So far, little is known about miRNA in Solanum tuberosum species. Using previously known miRNAs from Arabidopsis, rice and other plant species against expressed sequence tags (ESTs), genomic survey sequence (GSS) and nucleotide databases, we identified 48 potential miRNAs in S. tuberosum. These potato miRNAs may regulate 186 potential targets, which are involved in floral, leaf, root, and stem development, signal transduction, metabolism pathways, and stress responses. To validate the prediction of miRNAs in potato, we performed a RT-PCR analysis and found that potato miRNAs have diverse expression patterns during development.
