  1. Whereas “0” indicates that no miRNA is detected in the corresponding genotype/organ, a number from “1” to “11” indicates the number of detected members of the miRNA family; new miRNAs have names in the format of “new-#”, for example, new-1.
  2. Those miRNAs with names that are underlined were previously reported by Zeng et al. [22].
