  1. An AUC value was calculated for each microRNA in TargetScanMouse (Release 6.1 March 2012, conserved targets of conserved microRNAs) [28] and miRanda (August 2010, targets with good mirSVR score of conserved microRNAs) [29] to evaluate whether microRNA targets overlap with predicted non-germ cell genes. Top-10 microRNAs based on AUC values were obtained from each of the two databases. The microRNAs identified from both databases are shown in the table.
