miR-277 was reported independently in references [1] and [2]. Computational prediction followed by northern blotting confirmed that the strand containing the predicted miR is predominantly expressed [1]. Reference [2] confirmed the 5' end of the excised miRNA by cloning and reported a length distribution of 21-23 nt with 23 nt the most commonly expressed. Stark et al. [3] have predicted that miR-277 controls the pathway for valine, leucine and isoleucine degradation by downregulating many of its enzymes.
