miR-281 was reported independently in references [1] and [2]. The sequence in this entry is from reference [2] which identified a 23 nt excised sequence from the 3' arm of the precursor by cloning. Reference [1] reported the reverse complement of this foldback precursor from computational prediction and northern blotting. The predicted mature sequence (5' and 3' ends unknown) from the 3' arm of the reverse complement was named miR-281b in reference [1] and is designated miR-281-2* here.
