Decreased Serum microRNA-21, microRNA-25, microRNA-146a, and microRNA-181a in Autoimmune Diabetes: Potential Biomarkers for Diagnosis and Possible Involvement in Pathogenesis

Figure 3

Venn diagram of predicted target genes and KEGG pathways for miR-21, miR-25, miR-146a, and miR-181a. (a) Venn diagram of predicted target genes. The genes were selected as targets if they had overlapped in at least three of four prediction algorithms (MiRWALK, miRTarBase, miRDB, and TargetScan). (b) Venn diagram of KEGG pathways enriched with genes targeted by the four miRNAs with . Pathways related to malignancy were eliminated. Abbreviations: KEGG, Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes.
