The expression level in males and females of seven microRNAs (mir-1b, mir-61, mir-281, mir-36b, mir-71b, bantam and mir-8437) were further validated by quantitative PCR. [score:3]

To test this hypothesis, we assessed whether mature and precursor sequences of sma-mir-190, sma-mir-281 and sma-mir-8451 were homologous to any S. haematobium miRNAs identified using a less stringent (blastn -task “blastn-short”) approach [43]. [score:1]
For three other miRNAs—mir-190, mir-281 and mir-8451—reported to be conserved among the Bilateria, Protostomia and Platyhelminthes, respectively [10], no representatives were detected in S. haematobium. [score:1]
However, transcription in adult stages has been reported for mir-190 in both S. japonicum [13, 21] and S. mansoni [10], and for mir-281 in S. mansoni [10], suggesting that homologs of these miRNAs were not identified here in S. haematobium due to the stringency with which miRDeep2 defines high-confidence homologs, requiring an exact nucleotide match for positions 2–8 (‘seed’) of the mature sequence.
