    Full Name of the Resource : Gene regulation by mammalian microRNAs
    Resource Category : Databases -> RNA -> RNA Sequence, Structure and Functions

    Brief Description : Argonaute (http://www.ma.uni-heidelberg.de/apps/zmf/argonaute/interface) is a database that provides comprehensive information on mammalian microRNAs (miRNA), their origin and regulated target genes, which are collected from both literature and other databases. Argonaute hosts information on origin of a miRNA, i.e. in which host gene it is encoded, the tissue specificity of its expression and its known or proposed function, its potential target genes including GeneOntology annotation, as well as miRNA families based on their co-expression and proteins known to be involved in miRNA processing. Additionally, target genes are linked to an information retrieval system that provides comprehensive information from sequence databases and a simultaneous search of MEDLINE with all synonyms of a given gene (http://www.ma.uni-heidelberg.de/inst/zmf/affymetrix/evaluation/annotation/ver2/). The web interface allows the user to get information for a single or for multiple miRNAs, either selected or uploaded through a text file. Argonaute currently has information on 839 miRNAs from human, mouse and rat.
