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]
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, mir-71 and mir-2 are found as a clustered pair in H. contortus. [score:1]
