  1. The five miRNAs that showed the strongest expression changes from each group in Table 1 were included for putative target analysis using the TargetScan rat algorithm (; Release 6.2, June 2012). The table provides a selection of putative targets. The ranking of microrna expression changes was performed according to the microarray data from Table 1 considering significant expression changes at all time points. For group A expression changes in the PH but not the SL group were used (since these were considered more relevant to the biological mechanisms of liver regeneration). PH – partial hepatectomy, SL – sham laparotomy, N/A – not available.
