bantam microRNA was predicted independently by two groups using computational approaches [1,2]. Northern blotting confirmed that the strand containing the predicted miR is predominantly expressed. Subsequent cloning studies have independently identified the same miRNA and confirmed the 5' end [3]. A length distribution of 20-23 nt was reported with a 23 nt sequence the most commonly expressed. bantam is reported to promote tissue growth [1]. bantam expression is temporally and spatially regulated in response to patterning cues. bantam microRNA simultaneously stimulates cell proliferation and prevents apoptosis and is predicted to target the pro-apoptotic gene hid [1].
