Annotation confidence High
Do you think this miRNA is real?
Houbaviy et al. cloned 3 closely related sequences from mouse embryonic stem cells [1], and named them miR-34a, miR-34b and miR-172. These names have been remapped to miR-34c (MIR:MI0000403), miR-34b (MIR:MI0000404) and miR-34a (MIR:MI0000584) to clarify homology with human sequences.
