Of the highly expressed miRNAs common to both parasites, five (lin-4, mir-45, mir-50, mir-71, mir-228) are shared with C. elegans, where all except mir-50 are also abundant (using the same read number criteria) [42]. [score:3]
Functional roles have been described for Drosophila mir-2 in suppressing embryonic apoptosis [59] and for C. elegans mir-71 in lifespan and stress responses [60]. [score:3]
Interestingly, mir-71 and mir-2 are found as a clustered pair in H. contortus. [score:1]
Although the genomic organisation of C. elegans mir-2 and mir-71 (separated by ~7 kb) does not constitute a cluster by the criteria applied here, their relative proximity in C. elegans and tight clustering in H. contortus may suggest functional linkage of these two miRNAs. [score:1]

Interestingly a number of these (asu- miR-100a-5p, miR-60-3p, miR-71-5p, let-7-5p, lin-4-5p and miR-5885a, b, c-3p) were also present in EV libraries prepared from H. polygyrus adult stage [9], while miR-100a-5p and let-7-5p were recently identified in adult EV of the clade I nematode Trichuris muris [21].
