Loop structure regulatory network motif. Three-element regulatory loop-structure motif, which features one miRNA and two proteins. In this structure, one of the proteins would act as a TF by regulating the miRNA, which in turn would target the other protein. The latter would either simply interact with the TF or serve as a TcoF for the regulation of the miRNA. This protein would also be associated with OC according to DDOC.
