Furthermore, the expression of miR-3479, miR-new-3, miR-184, miR-61, miR-281 and bantam was confirmed by RT-qPCR in CWG7 and PSG7 samples (Additional file 4). [score:3]
The results of our work also showed the expression of miRNAs that were not identified by the bioinformatics approach such as miR-36, miR-307, miR-1992, mir-3479 [41], highlighting the potential of the high-throughput technology used in this study for miRNA discovery. [score:3]
It has been suggested that miR-3479 family is only present in E. granulosus, S. mansoni and S. japonicum [37]. [score:1]
Among the conserved families, we found that five of them have multiple members: miR-2 (miR-2a, miR-2b, miR-2c), miR-124 (miR-124a, miR-124b), miR-277 (miR-277, miR-4989, miR-new-2), miR-92 (miR-3479, miR-new-3) and miR-7 (miR-7a, miR-7b). [score:1]
The analysis of E. canadensis G7 miRNA families (TableĀ  4) showed that miR-3479 belongs to miR-92 family that is conserved not only in Platyhelminths but also in Vertebrata, Nematoda, Arthropoda and Annelida. [score:1]

These results imply that the gain of miR-3479 in E. granulosus or S. japonicum may have resulted as an evolved adaptation in the parasitic Platyhelminthes to moderate the host immune response. [score:1]
Although previous studies did not report there was any miRNA family acquired in the Platyhelminthes [8, 9], we observed that mir-3479 was present in E. granulosus, S. mansoni and S. japonicum. [score:1]
Interestingly, the remaining one miRNA family (mir-3479) is only present in E. granulosus, S. mansoni and S. japonicum. [score:1]
Further, one recent study has shown that three schistosome-specific miRNAs, Bantam, miR-10 and miR-3479, were detected in the plasma of S. japonicum-infected rabbits [44]. [score:1]
