This miRNA was previously named miR-23 [1,2] but is renamed here to avoid confusion with the more recently described miR-23b (MI0000439). Kawasaki and Taira reported that miR-23 regulates the transcriptional repressor Hairy enhancer of split (HES1) [3]. This finding was later retracted after the discovery that the regulated gene was human homolog of ES1 (HES1), whose function is unknown.
