Evolution of MicroRNAs Located Within Hox Gene Clusters
Andrea Tanzer, Chris T. Amemiya, Chang-Bae Kim, Peter F. Stadler
Submitted for publication in:
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) form an abundant class of non-coding RNA genes that have an important function in post-transcriptional gene regulation and in particular mod- ulate the expression of developmentally important transcription factors including Hox genes. Two families of microRNAs are genomically located in intergenic regions in the Hox clusters and vertebrates. Here we describe their evolution in detail.
