Abstract: miRNAs participate in multiple biological processes of an organism. Virus is closely related to miRNA in the course of infection. This study aimed to determine the interaction between host and virus-encoded miRNA in the course of infection based on virus-encoded miRNAs regulation of its own gene, virus-encoded miRNAs regulation of host gene. The effect of viral infection on expression of host-encoded miRNA was also investigated.
