Do you think this miRNA is real?

iab-4 is a transcript of the Bithorax complex which has been previously shown to contribute to proper formation of abdominal segments . Reference  identified a miRNA gene within the transcript and mapped the ends of the mature miR sequence by cloning. Excised miR sequences were identified from both arms of the precursor and are named miR-iab-4-5p (5') and miR-iab-4-3p (3') as too few sequences were cloned to decide on which was predominantly expressed.
