Figure 3.

miRNA targets are enriched among human EC-genes after filtering out the bias caused by three properties. The EC-genes were sampled to have similar (A) proportion of genes with paralogs, (B) lengths of 3'UTRs and (C) evolutionary constraints on the 3'UTRs as compared to non-EC-genes. The horizontal lines above the histogram bars represent the proportion of miRNA targets using genes with mouse orthologs as background.
