Expression of miRNAs targeting IGF1, IGF1R, PPP3CA, NFATc1, MEF2C, GSK3b, TEAD1 and MSTN. MiR-27b is upregulated 7.4-fold in Piedmontese breed. miR-27b, miR-132, miR-186 and miR-199b-5p were screened in TaqMan real-time PCR and expression was normalized to the endogenous control, miR-16. Relative expression differences are shown as fold change mean ± S.D. (n = 20) for each miRNAs compared to Friesian samples. * means values with significant difference (at least p < 0.05).
