polymorphic miRNA-target interactions

Why the name “PATROCLES”?

To a large extent, Patrocles was killed by Hector because he went to battle wearing the armour of his friend Achilles. Likewise, the mutant Texel MSTN mRNA has mistakenly become the target of miRNAs because of its disguise using a target octamer motif borrowed from genuine target genes.
