The duplex miRNA (designated miRNA-miRNA*) is reoriented on DICER1 after cleavage and then transferred from DICER1 to an Argonaute protein (AGO2 or, by inference, AGO1, AGO3, or AGO4) within the RISC loading complex. Particular Argonaute proteins do not appear to have significantly different populations of miRNAs, however Argonaute identity can affect the resulting length of the miRNA.
