Mir-BHRF1-3 microRNA precursor family Wikipedia
The mir-BHRF1-3 microRNA precursor found in Human herpesvirus 4 (Epstein-Barr virus). In Epstein-Barr virus, mir-BHRF1-3 is found in the 3' UTR of the BHRF1 (Bam HI fragment H rightward open reading frame 1) gene, which is known to encode a distant Bcl-2 homolog. The mature sequence is excised from the 5' arm of the hairpin. Two other miRNA precursors were found in this reading frame, namely Mir-BHRF1-1 and Mir-BHRF1-2.
BHRF-1-3 miRNA is thought to operate as part of a 'miRNA cluster' with two other microRNAs also found in the Epstein-Barr virus genome. BHRF-3 has been shown to be expressed in latency-III infected lymphoblasts.
