miR-155 and miR-802 expression are specifically reduced in cells infected with miRNA-sponge lentiviruses. a Top panel shows the sequence alignment of mmu-miR-155 and mmu-miR-802 to the corresponding miRNA sponge sites engineered in the lentiviral vectors. Bottom panel shows Lv-miRT constructs containing the CMV promoter to drive destabilized green fluorescent protein expression (d2EGFP) bearing 4 or 8 miRNA sponge sites in the 3′UTR. b Minimum free energy and complementarity displayed in the miRNA:target sites hybridizations: Engineered miRT sites (recognition of engineered miRNA target sites with perfect pairing or 10–11 mismatch), validated seeds (recognition of 18 miR-155 and 12 miR-802 sites from experimentally validated target genes by miR-155, and miR-802 or an unrelated miRNA), rand seq (recognition of 100 completely random sequences of 22 nucleotides by miR-155 and miR-802), rand seq + fixed seed (recognition of 100 random sequences of 22 nucleotides with fixed miR-155 and miR-802 seed region by miR-155 and miR-802). Energies were calculated using RNA hybrid algorithm. c HeLa cells stably expressing both mmu-miR-155 and mmu-miR-802 were transduced with 1 and 10 MOI of Lv-miR155T or Lv-Control. Expression of both miRNAs was analyzed 72-h later. RQ values represent mean ± SEM of four independent samples; *p < 0.05 and **p < 0.01 (Kruskal-Wallis test). d HeLa cells stably expressing both mmu-miR-155 and mmu-miR-802 were transduced with 10 MOI of Lv-miR155-802T or Lv-Control. Expression of both miRNAs was analyzed 72-h later. RQ values represent mean ± SEM of four independent experiments; *p < 0.05 (Kruskal-Wallis test)
