  1. The functional annotation of mRNA expression profile was conducted by DAVID software ( [30, 31]. Annotation Cluster: A group of terms having similar biological functions. Enrichment Score: The geometric mean (in -log scale) of member's p-values in a corresponding annotation cluster represents the rank of their biological significance. An enrichment score of >1.3 is used for a cluster to be statistically significant. The higher an enrichment score, the more enriched genes in that group. P-Value: The p-values associated with each annotation terms are the Fisher Exact Score shown in the regular chart report for the same terms. Count: Genes involved in the terms. %: Percentage of involved genes over total down-regulated genes correlated to altered miRNAs.
