Arm selection preferences of 5p arm and 3p arm differ between normal liver and HBV(+)HCC tissues. In hsa-mir-30b, the 5p arm miRNA is preferred in tumor tissue, whereas the 3p arm miRNA is preferred in normal tissue (p value = 0.013). In hsa-mir-193b, the 5p arm miRNA is preferred in normal tissue, whereas the 3p arm miRNA is preferred in tumor tissue (p value = 0.007).
