Annotation confidence High
Do you think this miRNA is real?
Human miR-92a (previously named miR-92 here) has two predicted hairpin precursor sequences: mir-92a-1 (MIR:MI0000093) on chromosome 13 (named mir-92-13 in [1]) and mir-92a-2 (MIR:MI0000094) on chromosome X (named mir-92-X in [1]). miR-92a has also been cloned from mouse embryonic stem cells [2] and is predicted to be expressed from two closely related precursor hairpins (MIR:MI0000719 and MIR:MI0000580). The mature sequence shown here represents the most commonly cloned form from large-scale cloning studies [7].
