It was shown using bioinformatic approach by analysis of alternative transcriptes secondary structure, that А. californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus gene ph encoded two mature miRNAs and three potential miRNAs. Gene orf1629 complementary to gene ph did not encode miRNAs and pre-miRNA-Cs. Gene p10 encodes mature  and potential miRNA. Gene p74 located on complementary chain encodes three mature miRNAs.
