Conservation analysis of silkworm miRNAs. All known miRNAs and their orthologs were downloaded from miRBase 14.0. Abbreviations: inv-ver, widely identified in invertebrates and vertebrates; inv, identified in invertebrates; ins, identified in insects; sw, reported only in the silkworm. The colors in 'conservation' only highlight the differences in their conservation for easier viewing. Three miRNAs, bmo-mir-9b, bmo-mir-1924 and bmo-mir-1926, had no sequencing reads corresponding to previously reported miRNA sequences across the three libraries but the star sequence of bmo-mir-9b, miR-9b*, was identified in the anterior-middle and posterior silk glands (highlighted in blue). Nucleotides in red in some mature sequences were confirmed by Solexa sequencing.
