MicroRNAs (miRNAs) processed from nuclear-encoded transcripts control expression of target transcripts by directing cleavage or translational inhibition. Artificial miRNAs (amiRNAs) that exploit this endogenous gene silencing mechanism can be designed to target any gene of interest and provide a highly specific approach for effective post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) in plants. Here, using Arabidopsis thaliana miR159a, miR167b and miR171a precursors as backbones, we designed two types… CONTINUE READING
