Annotation confidence High
Do you think this miRNA is real?
Kim et al. cloned 40 new miRNAs from rat E18 primary cortical neurons [1]. The sequence reported in [1] contains a 3' terminal U residue, which conflicts with the precursor sequence shown here. The mature sequence shown here represents the most commonly cloned form from large-scale cloning studies [3]. The ends of the miRNA may be offset with respect to previous annotations.
