miR-138 is a family of microRNA precursors found in animals, including humans. MicroRNAs are typically transcribed as ~70 nucleotide precursors and subsequently processed by the Dicer enzyme to give a ~22 nucleotide product. The excised region or, mature product, of the miR-138 precursor is the microRNA mir-138. miR-138 has been used as an example of the post-transcriptional regulation of miRNA, due to the finding that while the precursor is expressed ubiquitously, the mature product is found only in specific cell types.

Mouse miR-138 was cloned from mouse brain tissue in [1]. There are 2 predicted hairpin precursor structures in the mouse genome, each has a closely related human homologue [2]. mir-138-1 (MI0000722) is found on mouse chromosome 8, and mir-138-2 (MI0000164, previously named mir-138 here) on chromosome 9. Kim et al. and Obernosterer et al. independently show that the mature product is a 23mer [3,4].
