miRNA regulation in Bovine serum during acute FMDV infection
miRNA Fold change p-value Ascribed function Ref
miR-26b −3.09 0.032 □ Role in adipogenesis and adipocyte differentiation
□ Inhibits HBV replication by targeting CHORDC1

  1. List of bovine miRNAs that were observed to be up-regulated and down-regulated in serum samples collected during the acute phase of FMDV infection. Shown are the miRNA species, the fold-change in expression levels (in ascending order), and the ascribed function from literature searches of cattle miRNAs and homologous miRNAs from other species with little to no sequence divergence. The miRNAs listed showed a fold-change in expression levels of greater than 1.50, and had p-values of <0.05
