Abstract

In the road for network medicine the newly emerged systems-level subpathway-based analysis methods offer new disease genes, drug targets and network-based biomarkers. In parallel, paired miRNA/mRNA expression data enable simultaneously monitoring of the micronome effect upon the signaling pathways. Towards this orientation, we present a methodological pipeline for the identification of differentially expressed subpathways along with their miRNA regulators by using KEGG signaling pathway maps, miRNA-target interactions and expression profiles from paired miRNA/mRNA experiments. Our pipeline offered new biological insights on a real application of paired miRNA/mRNA expression profiles with respect to the dynamic changes from colostrum to mature milk whey; several literature supported genes and miRNAs were recontextualized through miRNA-mediated differentially expressed subpathways.
