Therefore, the identified candidates could be taken as reference genes to validate the differentially expressed miRNAs really affecting the mRNA expression levels during adiposeness. Here, we showed that miR-125a inhibits porcine preadipocytes differentiation by targeting ESRRa [26].
We further highlighted gene targets of related miRNAs that maybe involved in regulating fat deposition and adiposeness, in sheep and other livestock.
