Abstract
This study is to uncover VHD-related important biological features for understanding molecular of this disease. The system analysis strategy is applied to generate the first VHD-related FFL network. Then, the network topology is mapped into the biological space to refine the biological features of VHD. 4 miRNA, 4 TF and 34 gene hubs are identified and confirmed to play important roles in the occurrence and development of VHD. The signal pathways mediated by miRNA hubs are also predicted, where the processes that MAPK pathway mediated by has-let-7c induces VHD are explained. This study provides some new computational evidences for the understanding of VHD molecular mechanism, and also has important implications in terms of improving current therapeutic strategies of VHD.
