From: Pulmonary microRNA profiling: implications in upper lobe predominant lung disease

Expression change
microRNA ID UL vs. LL logFC P value
hsa-miR-663a Increase 1.17 0.005
hsa-let-7 g-5p Increase 0.38 0.031
hsa-miR-451a Decrease −2.02 0.039
hsa-miR-30d-5p Decrease −0.56 0.020
  1. microRNA ID = official microRNA name according to miRBASE v21; logFC = log2 fold change in BAL from upper lobe vs. lower lobe; P value = the unadjusted
  2. P value from the statistical test (paired analysis)
