MIR159a was identified independently by Reinhart et al. [1] and Mette et al. [2]. The latter group referred to this sequence by the internal identifier MIR40a. This sequence is not related to C. elegans miR-40. MIR159a is thought to target mRNAs coding for MYB proteins which are known to bind to the promoter of the floral meristem identity gene LEAFY [3].
