The Structural Annotations of The Mir-122 Non-Coding RNA from The Tilapia Fish (Oreochromis niloticus)
Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) is an important fisheries commodity. Scientific efforts have been done to increase its quality. One of them is staging a premium diet such as a fat-enriched diet. The transcriptomics approach is able to provide the signatures of the diet outcomes by observing the micro(mi)RNA signature in transcriptional regulation. Hence, it was found that the availability of mir-122 is essential in the regulation of a high-fat diet in tilapia. However, this transcriptomics signature is lacking structural annotations and the complete interaction annotations with its silencing(si)RNA. RNAcentral website was navigated for the latest annotation of mir-122 from tilapia and other species as a comparison. MEGA X was employed to comprehend the miRNA evolutionary repertoire. The RNA secondary structure prediction tools from the Vienna RNA package and the RNA tertiary structure prediction tools from simRNA and modeRNA are secured with default parameters. The HNADOCK tools were leveraged to observe the interaction between mir-122 and its siRNA. The post-processing was conducted with the Chimera visualization tool. The secondary and tertiary structure of the mir-122 and its siRNA could be elucidated, docked, and visualized. In this end, further effort to develop a comprehensive molecular breeding tool could be secured with the structural annotation information.
