Schematic representation of the workflow and secondary structures of new miRNA candidates. A. Schematic representation of the workflow used to predict and verify new miRNAs downstream of Alu elements. B. Secondary structures of new miRNA candidates. The highlighted letters in the foldback structures represent the mature miRNA sequence. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 denote miRNAs with ID:AluSg/x-1110454, ID:AluSq/x-374792, ID:AluJo-576611, ID:AluJo-135090, ID:MIRb-367839, and ID:MIR-128218, respectively.
