This human miRNA was predicted by computational methods using conservation with mouse and Fugu rubripes sequences [1]. Expression of the excised miR was validated in zebrafish, and the ends mapped by cloning. Subsequent cloning studies have also verified the expression of miR-222 in human ES cells. The mature sequence shown here represents the most commonly cloned form from large-scale cloning studies [4].
