miR-278 was reported independently in references [1] and [2]. Computational prediction followed by northern blotting confirmed that the strand containing the predicted miR is predominantly expressed [1]. Reference [2] confirmed the 5' end of the excised miRNA by cloning and reported a length distribution of 20-22 nt with 22 nt the most commonly expressed.
