Reference [1] named this sequence miR-15. This is renamed miR-15a here to avoid confusion with miR-15b (MI0000438) identified later by others. This gene and miR-16 are clustered within 0.5 kb at 13q14. This region has been shown to be deleted in more than half of B cell chronic lymphocytic leukemias (CLL). Both miR-15a and miR-16 are deleted or down-regulated in more than two thirds of CLL cases [2].
