Function and Evolution of a MicroRNAwith a Role in Reproductive Growth in Tomato

  • Published 2011


MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small RNAs that function in posttranscriptional gene regulation in eukaryotes. PlantmiRNAs, which function through a combination of target cleavage and translational repression, typically show near-perfect complementarity to target sequences and thus are predicted to have a limited number of targets (reviewed in Voinnet… (More)
