This sequence was independently identified by two groups. Park et al. described miR172a2, found on chromosome 5 in Arabidopsis thaliana and thought to target mRNAs coding for Apetala 2 (AP2) proteins, and miR172a1 (MI0000215) [1]. These sequences have been renamed miR172b and miR172a here to match previous plant miRNA nomenclature. This sequence was referred to by Mette et al. by the internal identifier MIR123b [2], and was previously identified as MIR180b here. This sequence is not related to mouse miR-123. Wang et al. [2] report Northern blot evidence for the miR172b* sequence from the opposite arm of the precursor.
