It should be noted that transcriptional or posttranscriptional regulation of OprD may also happen leading to loss or reduction of OprD production even if there is no decrease in oprD expression (but this is not examined in our study).
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are ~22 nucleotides long noncoding RNAs, known to inversely regulate their target gene expression at the posttranscriptional level by interacting with the 3'-untranslated region (3'-UTR) [4].
