miRNA-like RNAs from the miR839 precursor. (a) The precursor fold-back structure and sequencing reads corresponding to the individual miRNA-like RNAs miR839.1 (that is, miR839) and miR839.1* (that is, miR839*). Note that miR839.1*, miR839.2 and miR839.3 have more sequencing reads than miR839.1. For clarity, miR839.3* was is though the number of reads mapped to it is below the cutoff threshold of 5. (b) Distribution of sequencing reads along the precursor. (c) Expression of miR839.1, miR839.2 and miR839.3 under the challenge of three Pst strains (hrcC, avrRpt2 and EV) and in a mock control at 6 and 14 hpi.
