ready Polymorphism in microRNAs and their TargetSites


General Information
PolymiRTS (Polymorphism in microRNAs and their TargetSites) is a database of naturally occurring DNA variations in microRNA (miRNA) seed regions and miRNA target sites. MicroRNAs pair to the transcripts of protein-coding genes and cause translational repression or mRNA destabilization. SNPs and INDELs in miRNAs and their target sites may affect miRNA-mRNA interaction, and hence affect miRNA-mediated gene repression.
