I'd like to know if there is any miRNA that is located in an exon of a gene. Is there any plant miRNA that is located in an exon of a gene? Almost all papers state that miRNAs are located within intron or intergenic. Could anyone there answer this question? If you do know of miRNA located in exon of a gene, could you provide reference to support this?
Thank you.
