Plant microRNAs (miRNAs) typically form near-perfect duplexes with their targets and mediate mRNA cleavage. Here, we describe an unconventional miRNA target of miR398 in Arabidopsis, an mRNA encoding the blue copper-binding protein (BCBP). BCBP mRNA carries an miR398 complementary site in its 5'-untranslated region (UTR) with a bulge of six nucleotides(More)
