RNA-target interactions

miRNAs targeting mRNAs

miRNAs regulate gene expression of protein-coding genes by interacting with target mRNAs. Hundreds of thousands of experimentally supported miRNA:gene pairs are cataloged in TarBase and can be viewed and searched in RNAcentral.

miRNAs targeting lncRNAs

RNAcentral also imports information about experimentally confirmed miRNAs that target lncRNAs from LncBase. Find out more about LncBase in the following paper:
