1. We have discovered a profile of human miRNAs expression from the hepatitis B virus (HBV)–producing cell line HepG2 2.2.15, which can provide more information for the study of the HBV life cycle or HBV-related hepatocellular carcinoma.
2. No HBV-encoded miRNAs were found in the HepG2 2.2.15 cell line.
