aLinkage analysis of predicted miRNA-related SNPs and eQTLs in 90 CEU individuals from HapMap project.

bA survey of gene expression of 193 normal human brain tissues (cortex) [22]. The p-values have been adjusted by Bonferroni correction.

cA survey of gene expression of 269 normal human brain tissues (prefrontal cortex) [23]. Genome-wide Bonferroni corrected pā€‰=ā€‰0.05 (2.6e-12).

dA survey of gene expression of 150 normal human brain tissues (cerebellum, frontal cortex, pons, and temporal cortex) [24].

eAlthough rs13042 has four allelotypes in MirSNP, only A and G alleles have frequencies in populations.
