PHDcleav – Prediction of Human Dicer Cleavage

PHDcleav

:: DESCRIPTION

PHDcleav is a webserver to predict Dicer cleavage sites in pre-miRNA. Dicer, an RNase III enzyme, plays vital role in RNA interference pathway, processes both pre-miRNAs (precursor microRNAs) and double-stranded (ds) RNAs to generate effector molecules. Thus it is very important to know true Dicer processing sites in the pre-miRNA molecules to understand the RNA interference pathway.
