The expression of C. elegans miR-72 was confirmed by PCR amplification, cloning and sequencing. The predicted hairpin precursor sequence presented here is supported by conservation in C. elegans and C. briggsae (MI0000751), and differs from that shown in [1] (Uwe Ohler, pers. comm.). The extents of the dominant mature miRNA species are adjusted here in accordance with a large scale cloning and sequencing study [5].
