miR-2c was predicted by similarity to miR-2a (MI0000117). Expression in Drosophila was independently confirmed by Northern blot analysis [1] and by cloning [2]. The latter study confirmed the ends of the excised miR. Stark et al. [3] have identified targets for miR-2 in Drosophila using computational prediction followed by experimental validation. miR-2 regulates the proapoptotic genes reaper, grim and sickle, suggesting that it may be involved in the control of apoptosis.
