|Title:||A single Hox locus in Drosophila produces functional microRNAs from opposite DNA strands||Authors:||Stark, A.
|Issue Date:||1-Jan-2008||Citation:||Stark, A., Bushati, N., Jan, C.H., Kheradpour, P., Hodges, E., Brennecke, J., Bartel, D.P., Cohen, S.M., Kellis, M. (2008-01-01). A single Hox locus in Drosophila produces functional microRNAs from opposite DNA strands. Genes and Development 22 (1) : 8-13. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1101/gad.1613108||Abstract:||MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are ∼22-nucleotide RNAs that are processed from characteristic precursor hairpins and pair to sites in messages of protein-coding genes to direct post-transcriptional repression. Here, we report that the miRNA iab-4 locus in the Drosophila Hox cluster is transcribed convergently from both DNA strands, giving rise to two distinct functional miRNAs. Both sense and antisense miRNA products target neighboring Hox genes via highly conserved sites, leading to homeotic transformations when ectopically expressed. We also report sense/antisense miRNAs in mouse and find antisense transcripts close to many miRNAs in both flies and mammals, suggesting that additional sense/antisense pairs exist. © 2008 by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press.||Source Title:||Genes and Development||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/129661||ISSN:||08909369||DOI:||10.1101/gad.1613108|
