How to retrieve precursor miRNA sequence with extra bases for cloning
Posted 23 April 2010 - 07:48 PM
Before I can find the flank sequence, but now I can not.
Where can I find the sequence?

- go to ensembl.org
- Search hsa-mir-21 using the search box and choose human from the species and get this page
- Click the link under "By Species" -> Human -> Gene
- Listed is the miR-21 link which appears as Ensembl miRNA Gene: ENSG00000199004 (miRBase: hsa-mir-21) [Region in detail]
- Click the link which leads to this page http://uswest.ensemb...ENSG00000199004
- Click the link "Sequence" found on th left column of the page. The genomic sequence for miR-21 will be displayed with pre-miR-21 sequence displayed in red. Now the upstream and downstream sequences may not be the desired size.
- To ask the database to export the size you desire, click "Configure this page" on the left of the page, a popup window will appear. In the top two fields named as "5' Flanking sequence (upstream)" and "3' Flanking sequence (downstream) ", input 100 and 100, and click "Save and close". This will tell the database to only export 100 bp upstream, the pre-miR and 100 bp downstream sequence.
- After that, the page will reload with the desired sequence displayed as shown below or can be found here

- Go to UCSC genome database -> Genome Browser
- Choose the genome (human, mouse, etc) and type hsa-miR-21 or mmu-miR-21 (for example) [note: The 2009 Feb human genome assebly has not annotated miRNA yet!, so choose the 2006 assembly if you search human miRNA]
- On the result page, click the link for miR-21 and get this page ,
- Click the link "DNA" on the top of the page
- On the next page, in the box "Sequence Retrieval Region Options: " type the number of desired extra bases, for example 100
- If the miRNA is transcribed from the minus strand, check the box "Reverse complement (get '-' strand sequence) "
- Click get DNA.

You can also retrieve genomic sequence from UCSC database:
- Go to UCSC genome database
copy miRNA precursor sequence obtained from mirbase.org to blat genome.
it gives you 100bp flanking sequences on both 5' and 3' ends.

I have seen a lot of references here are mainly inclined to animal miRNA can someone help with plant miRNAs on the same topic please
