MicroRNAs show varying distribution with corneal and footpad epithelia. Total RNA from adult mouse corneal (Co) and footpad (Fp) epithelia were analyzed by Northern hybridization with 32P-labeled oligonucleotides to mir-184, -204, -31, 204, let-7, and -203. Expression of mir-184, -204, and -31 is restricted to the corneal epithelium whereas mir-203 is preferentially expressed in the footpad epithelium. Expression of mir-205 and let-7 are noted in both corneal and footpad RNA. The 5S ribosomal fraction serves as the loading control.
