Bidirectional processing of pri-miRNAs with branched terminal loops by Arabidopsis Dicer-like 1
miRNA biogenesis starts with the transcription of long pri-miRNAs, typically by RNA polymerase II. pri-miRNAs are characterized by stem-loop structures consisting of a terminal loop, an upper stem, aExpand

Computational identification of microRNAs and their targets in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
AbstractmicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of endogenous, non-coding, short (∼21 nt) RNAs directly involved in regulating gene expression at the post-transcriptional level. Previous reports have notedExpand

Tomato Fruit Development and Ripening Are Altered by the Silencing of LeEIN2 Gene
Loss-of-function ethylene insensitive 2 (EIN2) mutations showed ethylene insensitivity in Arabidopsis, which indicated an essential role of EIN2 in ethylene signaling. However, the function of EIN2Expand

Bi-directional processing of pri-miRNAs with branched terminal loops by Arabidopsis Dicer-like1
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) originate from primary transcripts (pri-miRNAs) with characteristic stem-loop structures, and their accurate processing is required for the production of functional miRNAs. Here,Expand

Cloning of pectin methylesterase inhibitor from kiwi fruit and its high expression in Pichia pastoris
Abstract A new cDNA fragment from kiwi (Actinidia deliciosa) was cloned by RT-PCR and successfully expressed in Pichia pastoris KM71. Like the pectin methylesterase inhibitor (PMEI) purified fromExpand

PA1b, a plant peptide, induces intracellular [Ca2+] increase via Ca2+ influx through the L-type Ca2+ channel and triggers secretion in pancreatic β cells
Using alginic acid to adsorb polypeptides at pH 2.7, we isolated a peptide pea albumin 1b (PA1b) from pea seeds. The PA1b is a single chain peptide consisting of 37 amino acid residues with 6Expand

Long Non-Coding RNAs: Rising Regulators of Plant Reproductive Development
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) exert a multitude of functions in regulating numerous biological processes. Recent studies have uncovered a growing number of lncRNAs within the plant genome. TheseExpand
