The sequencing data for MDA-MB231 and MCF-7 in GSE16579 were downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO). Adapter sequences were removed from reads. Filtered reads with lengths from 18 nt to 25 nt were annotated using MirBase, v.16.0 by BLAST with at 100% identify (0 mismatch).
*Total Reads obtained from GSE16579.
** - and -reads are reads number in nucleus and cytoplasm, respectively. These were calculated from Total Reads and the NCR.
