Annotation confidence Not enough data
Do you think this miRNA is real?
This sequence is a predicted paralogue of the previously identified miR169 family [1], later experimentally verified [2]. It is predicted to target mRNAs coding for the CCAAT Binding Factor (CBF) and HAP2-like transcription factors.
