The mir-BART1 microRNA precursor is found in Human herpesvirus 4 (Epstein-Barr virus) and Cercopithicine herpesvirus 15. mir-BART1 is found in all stages of infection but expression is significantly elevated in the lytic stage. In Epstein-Barr virus, mir-BART1 is found in the intronic regions of the BART (Bam HI-A region rightward transcript) gene whose function is unknown. The mature sequence is excised from the 5' arm of the hairpin.

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 [3]. The ends of the miRNA may be offset with respect to previous annotations.
