The mir-BHRF1-2 microRNA precursor found in human herpesvirus 4 (Epstein-Barr virus), cercopithicine herpesvirus 15 and herpesvirus papio. In Epstein-Barr virus, mir-BHRF1-2 is found in the 3' UTR of the BHRF1 (Bam HI fragment H rightward open reading frame 1) gene, which is known to encode a distant Bcl-2 homolog. The mature sequence is excised from the 3' arm of the hairpin. Two other miRNA precursors were found in this reading frame, namely Mir-BHRF1-1 and Mir-BHRF1-3. BHRF-1-2 miRNA is thought to operate as part of a 'miRNA cluster' with two other microRNAs also found in the Epstein-Barr virus genome. BHRF-1-2 has been shown to be expressed in latency-III infected lymphoblasts.

Feedback: Do you believe this miRNA is real?

Pfeffer et al. cloned 5 miRNAs from a Burkitt's lymphoma cell line (BL41) infected with the B95-8 strain of Epstein-Barr virus [1]. They were all confirmed by Northern blot. The mature sequence shown here represents the most commonly cloned form from large-scale cloning studies [2]. The ends of the miRNA may be offset with respect to previous annotations.
