The study was undertaken to decipher the microRNA (miRNA) related markers associated with corpus luteum (CL) tropism in buffalo. The data obtained from deep sequencing of CL tissue from different physiological stages was mined in silico for the identification of miRNA-related markers (SSR & SNP). From the present study, 5 annotated and 176 unannotated miRNA were deduced while comparing with Bos taurus genome. In addition, 4 SSRs and 9 SNPs were deduced from the miRNA sequences. These SSRs were on the genes viz. Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 1-like, myocyte enhancer factor 2A, beta casein, T cell receptor gamma cluster 1. The SNP positions on genes viz. PYGO1 (Pygopus family PHD finger 1), LOC100337244 (Multidrug resistance-associated protein 4), FTH1 (Ferritin heavy chain 1), LOC788634 (BOLA class I histocompatibility antigen), PLXND1 (Plexin D1) and UBC (Ubiquitin C) show that these genes play critical role in CL tropism during estrous cycle in buffalo.

Degradation of CORPUS LUTEUM. In the absence of pregnancy and diminishing trophic hormones, the corpus luteum undergoes luteolysis which is characterized by the involution and cessation of its endocrine function.
The directional growth of an organism in response to an external stimulus such as light, touch, or gravity. Growth towards the stimulus is a positive tropism; growth away from the stimulus is a negative tropism. (From Concise Dictionary of Biology, 1990)
Formation of CORPUS LUTEUM. This process includes capillary invasion of the ruptured OVARIAN FOLLICLE, hypertrophy of the GRANULOSA CELLS and the THECA CELLS, and the production of PROGESTERONE. Luteinization is regulated by LUTEINIZING HORMONE.
A biologically active 20-alpha-reduced metabolite of PROGESTERONE. It is converted from progesterone to 20-alpha-hydroxypregn-4-en-3-one by the 20-ALPHA-HYDROXYSTEROID DEHYDROGENASE in the CORPUS LUTEUM and the PLACENTA.
The periodic shedding of the ENDOMETRIUM and associated menstrual bleeding in the MENSTRUAL CYCLE of humans and primates. Menstruation is due to the decline in circulating PROGESTERONE, and occurs at the late LUTEAL PHASE when LUTEOLYSIS of the CORPUS LUTEUM takes place.
