Table 1 (A) List of deregulated miRNAs identified in tonsillar cancers. These miRNAs demonstrate a two-fold change from normal tonsillar tissue. (B) ΔΔG free energy value, which can be used to evaluate target site accessibility. This value was determine using the PITA algorithm ( for the first 789 bp 3’UTR of PDCD4
