© 2006 The Author(s)A microarray dataset published by Zhang . (), which contains 21 622 genes including 2276 miRNA targets (), was used in this analysis as described in the ‘Materials and Methods’. The ratio of the miRNA target genes to the total genes expressed in an indicated number of tissues was calculated.
