Conserved miRNAs (miRNA*/miRNA duplexes) verified in Taenia multiceps . (A, B) Electrophoretic analysis of genomic DNA corresponding to three conserved miRNA precursor PCR products from T. multiceps. (C) Secondary structures of T. multiceps miR-87, miR-124b and miR-2162 miRNA precursors. Nucleotide bases of mature miRNA-5p are marked with red color, while nucleotide bases of mature miRNA-3p are marked with blue color. (D) miRNA homologues with other parasites miRNAs. “*” represents the conserved site in miRNAs.
