Circular RNA Profiling and Bioinformatic Modeling Identify Its Regulatory Role in Hepatic Steatosis

Figure 5

circRNA-miRNA-mRNA regulatory network uncovers the circRNA_021412-miR-1972-LPIN1 signaling underlying circRNAs’ effects. (a) The circRNA-miRNA-mRNA network related to transcriptional regulation. Red cycles, violet squares, and blue cycles represent circRNAs, miRNAs, and mRNAs, respectively. The size of each symbol reflects its degree, which is scored by the number of downstream targets. (b) circRNA_021412-miR-1972-LPIN1 signaling within the circRNA-miRNA-mRNA network is recognized to underlie the actions of circRNAs. (c) The circRNA_021412-miR-1972-LPIN1 signaling controls the pathway of lipid degradation via PPARα-induced ACSLs expression.
