Imperfect centered sites - a new mode of miRNA binding
Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
It is thought that interactions between miRNAs and mRNAs occur using the seed region at the 5' end of the miRNA. Our study demonstrates that imperfect sites in the center of the miRNA are not only very common, they are functional too.
