The profile of θ [H] peaks near miR-983/984 and miR-303 in both species, a common footprint of hitchhiking with positive selection [35]. [score:1]
For miR-2582 and miR-303, homologous sequences in D. yakuba were used; for miR-982 and miR-983, homologous sequences in D. erecta were used. [score:1]
The phylogenetic tree of each family of miR-982, miR-2582, miR-303, and miR-983 was reconstructed using the maximum likelihood method as implemented in MEGA 5.0 [69]. [score:1]
Orange blocks denote dme-miR-982, dme-miR-303, dme-miR-983-1, dme-miR-983-2 and dme-miR-984 in D. melanogaster, and dsi-miR-982c, dsi-miR-2582b, dsi-miR-982b, dsi-miR-2582a, dsi-miR-982a, dsi-miR-303 and dsi-miR-983 in D. simulans. [score:1]
As shown in Table 2, all the miRNA genes from the miR-982, miR-303 and miR-983 families have a significantly higher D/P ratio than the flanking regions in both D. melanogaster and D. simulans (p<0.05), suggesting positive selection. [score:1]
The ten miRNAs emerged between 4 and 30 Myrs ago are miR-972, miR-978 and miR-2499 from the miR-972s cluster, miR-303, miR-982 and miR-983-1 from the miR-982s cluster, miR-992 and miR-2498 from the miR-310s cluster, miR-1001 and miR-2494. [score:1]
1004096.g002 Figure 2(A) This cluster comprises members of five miRNA families (miR-982, miR-2582, miR-303, miR-983 and miR-984), indicated by red, yellow, green, blue and purple boxes, respectively. [score:1]
There were four such candidates: dya-miR-2582-anc, dya-miR-303-anc, der-miR-982-anc, and der-miR-983-anc, where “anc” indicates ancestor. [score:1]
