Feedback: Do you believe this miRNA is real?

This human miRNA was predicted by computational methods using conservation with mouse and Fugu rubripes sequences [1]. Expression of the excised miR has been validated in zebrafish, and the 5' end mapped by PCR. Landgraf et al. confirm expression in human [2].
