  1. *Nucleotide sequences correspond to potential mature miRNA sequences as deduced from BLAST searches using known plant miRNA sequences [54] and analysis of secondary structure predictions [52]. Accession numbers (MELOGEN database) of potential precursors of melon miRNAs are given. §Computational values of folding free energies have been calculated using MFOLD 3.1 [55]. ΔMinimal folding free energy indexes (MFEIs) have been calculated as described by Zhang et al. [53].
