The number of targets for mir-71a and mir-71b identified here was similar to that of a previous study of S. mansoni miRNAs [11], but overall, the number and identity of targets were discordant with results from the present study. [score:5]
Moreover, the four novel miRNAs transcribed principally in male adults, including one miRNA (sha-miR-new_46) encoded on the same scaffold as the mir-71/mir-2 cluster (KL250488.1) with a CPM more than 20-times higher than that in the library derived from adult female worms, suggest male-specific roles for these miRNAs in gene regulation. [score:2]
In female worms, the most highly transcribed miRNAs were sha-mir-71a (3.6% of mapped sRNA reads), sha-mir-1 (2.0%), sha-mir-71b (0.7%), sha-mir-125b (0.7%) and sha-bantam (0.3%) (S1 Table). [score:1]
Notably, among the female-biased transcripts were the three miRNAs, sha-mir-71b, sha-mir-2b and sha-mir-2c (encoded in a cluster on scaffold KL251164.1), whereas the related miRNAs sha-mir-71a and sha-mir-2a (encoded in a cluster on scaffold KL250488.1) did not show sex-biased transcription. [score:1]
The most highly transcribed miRNAs in male worms were sha-mir-1 (5.9% of mapped sRNA reads), sha-mir-71a (5.8%), sha-mir-125b (1.6%), sha-mir-7a (1.0%) and sha-let-7 (0.6%). [score:1]
The majority (n = 38; 82.6%) of miRNAs predicted to bind 3’-UTR elements were associated with more than one gene; these miRNAs included sha-miR-450_RF00708 (104 genes), sha-miR-71a (53 genes), sha-miR-71b (43 genes), sha-miR-new_38 (39 genes) and sha-miR-new_36 (37 genes). [score:1]
These results are consistent with reports of a mir-71/mir-2 cluster duplication in S. mansoni [10, 11] and S. japonicum [14, 34] on the female-sex (W) chromosome and on one autosome (chromosome 5), and further support roles in sex-specific traits, sexual differentiation, pairing of adult worms and reproductive processes in schistosomes.

Although the expression of sja-miR-71 and sja-bantam dropped quickly in S. japonicum lung-stage schistosomulum, we observed a strong hybridization signal for both miRNAs in S. mansoni (Figure 1) [37]. [score:3]
We observed 2 miRNAs (mir-2 and mir-71) expressed in both life cycle stages tested, 7 in adult worms only (mir-4, mir-6, mir-9, mir-32, mir-125, mir-3, mir-5) and 5 in schistosomula only (mir-20, mir-18, mir-22, mir-26, Bantam). [score:3]
We also analyzed in S. mansoni the expression of the five novel miRNAs recently identified in S. japonicum (sja-let-7, sja-miR-71, sja-bantam, sja-miR-125 and sja-miR-new1) [37]. [score:3]
Forty-two sequences had at least one match with mature miRNAs from different metazoan miRNA families, such as miR-832, miR-71, miR-297, and let-7 (Table 1). [score:1]
miR-71, miR-125 and Bantam are the miRNAs identified in S. mansoni homolog to miRNAs of S. japonicum [38]. [score:1]

Indeed, only two of the reported 211 microRNAs were confirmed in our analyses (mir-71a and let-7). [score:1]
Duplication of a gene into an autosome has been recently proposed as a way to escape such conflict (reviewed in [36]), and the mir-71/mir-2 cluster duplication appears to be an example of this. [score:1]
The mir-71/mir-2 microRNA cluster is highly conserved in invertebrates, and it has been shown that this cluster is duplicated in Platyhelminthes [25], [28]. [score:1]
Interestingly, one of the clusters (mir-71/2a/2b/2e) is on the sex chromosomes while the other (mir-71b/2f/2d/2c) is on chromosome 5 [25], [29]. [score:1]

Interestingly, Xue et al. (2008) showed that three of the miRNAs that we find in serum (sja-bantam, sja-miR-71 and sja-let-7) are expressed during all the stages of parasite development but are enriched in the cercariae, suggesting that they may be important during the initial stages of schistosome infection [65].

Some, however, are present at the same or even higher levels; two of the more abundant miRNAs, sma-miR-71a and sma-miR-125b, were both present at about the same level in the two samples, and other miRNAs, such as sma-bantam and sma-miR-36-3P, were moderately enriched in vesicles. [score:1]
