Short summary
This research aimed to investigate the molecular regulatory mechanisms involving miRNAs during uterine involution in postpartum ewes. We have screened a total of 118 differentially expressed miRNAs in hypothalamic libraries and 54 miRNAs in uterine libraries. Meanwhile, we have found two miRNA-target gene pairs that might participate in uterine involution in postpartum ewes. The study fills a gap in the research related to miRNAs in uterine involution in female livestock, especially in sheep.
