RNA secondary structure of the novel miRNAs. The secondary structures were retrieved by RNAfold, which is included in the mirDeep software package. Both mature and star sequences of the novel miRNAs are indicated. The mature sequence is highlighted in blue and the star sequence is in orange. The structures were drawn from the 5' end to the 3' end. The structures of miR_2, miR_5 and miR_8 are shown to exemplify the protocol used to identify the ZF miRNAs.
