In higher plants, microRNA (miRNA) is involved in regulation of developmental processes, including sexual organ development. Seven novel miRNA families with one known miRNA were isolated by constructing a small RNA library from a mixture of anther from a cytoplasmic male sterile line and its maintainer. Two miRNAs are conserved in plant species. A total of 18 potential targets were identified for the eight miRNA families, including 15 proteins annotated with function and three unknown proteins… CONTINUE READING
