The expression levels of miR-252–5p and miR-982–5p change post-transcriptionally following Dis3 knockdown. [score:4]
For the downregulated miRNA, miR-982–5p, our data are consistent with a role of Dis3 in the processing of the miRNA from the pre-miRNA precursor. [score:4]
Two miRNAs whose expression was reduced ≥2-fold (miR-982–5p and miR-9b-3p) were also identified (Figs.  4 and 6A). [score:3]
The biological function of miR-982–5p is not known but ectopic expression of pre-miR-982 in the wing pouch using the scalloped-GAL4 driver has been shown to produce phenotypes consistent with a connection to Notch signaling. [score:3]
However, our data shows that pre-miR-982 remains unchanged following Dis3 knockdown. [score:2]
This suggests that Dis3 is involved in the processing of the mature miR-982–5p from the pre-miR-982 precursor. [score:1]
[29] An alternative scenario is that pre-miR-982 binds to particular RNA binding proteins (e. g. Loquacious (PACT in mammals) [42,43]) to enable trimming of the precursor by Dis3. [score:1]
Of all the miRNAs detected by RNA-seq in Dis3 depleted wing imaginal discs, only one, miR-982–5p, showed a decrease in level (-4.4-fold by qRT-PCR) while its precursor remained unchanged. [score:1]
The reasons for this may be twofold; firstly in the absence of Dis3, pre-miR-982 may be signaled for degradation by another 3′-5′ exoribonuclease, for example, by addition of uridyl residues to the 3′ end and degradation by Dis3L2 in a similar manner to that observed during let-7 biogenesis in mouse and human cells. [score:1]
If Dis3 is involved in the processing of pre-miR-982 during its biogenesis then in the absence of Dis3 one may expect the level of precursor to increase. [score:1]
miR-982–5p −2.2/−4.4 Dm Unknown None identified No  Hs – Homo sapiens, Sp – Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, Dm – Drosophila melanogaster, Ce – Caenorhabditis elegans. [score:1]
[40,41] Our data also suggest that Dis3 can specifically affect processing of miR-982–5p from its precursors. [score:1]
[16,18] Alternatively Dis3 could function in the final trimming of miR-982–5p similar to the activity observed for Nibbler. [score:1]
[39,44] In this case the pre-miR-982 would be processed as normal by Dicer and therefore no change in pre-miR-982 levels would be expected. [score:1]
Similarly, miR-982–5p also has a uridine encoded at the next nucleotide after the 3′ end of the mature miRNA in the DNA sequence. [score:1]
** miR-982 is located in close proximity to miR-984, miR-303, miR-983–1 and miR-983–2. [score:1]

The cluster of miR-982/2582/303/983/984 appears to be a good example of de novo origin (see below) with point mutations improving miRNA processing step by step (Fig. 2B and Fig. S2 and S3). [score:2]
The miR-982 cluster was examined further by the sliding window analysis of Fay and Wu's H (θ [H]), an estimator of nucleotide diversity sensitive to positive selection [35], [36]. [score:1]
For example, the secondary structure of miR-982 in D. erecta can only form a poor hairpin (−18.20 kcal/mol). [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]
Indeed, the burst of adaptive new miRNAs is observable in D. simulans as well as the common ancestor of D. melanogaster and D. simulans, as is evident in the miR-982 cluster (Fig. 2A ). [score:1]
