Annotation confidence Not enough data
Do you think this miRNA is real?
Kim et al. cloned 40 new miRNAs from rat E18 primary cortical neurons [1]. This mouse miRNA is predicted based on homology to the verified rat sequence (MIR:MI0000629) - its expression was later independently verified in mouse [2].
