MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small non-coding RNAs which play a critical role in plant growth and development. To detect strawberry miRNAs and discover the expression difference between conventional and micropropagated strawberry plants, we carried out the detection and quantification of strawberry miRNAs by microarray. The main findings were that 74(More)
DNA methylation can control gene expression and may also play a role in plant development. Methylation of cytosine residues in DNA is enzymatically catalyzed by DNA methyltransferases. In this study, full-length genomic genes and cDNAs of methyltransferase (MET1) and domain-rearranged methyltransferase (DRM) were isolated from strawberry (Fragaria x(More)
Retrotransposons are ubiquitous in the plant kingdom and constitute a large fraction of many plant genomes. Although most retrotransposons from plants were thought to be transcriptionally silent in somatic tissues, evidence of activity under certain conditions is available in some cases. In this study, a complete LTR retrotransposon was isolated from the(More)
