MicroRNAs regulate gene expression by guiding the cleavage or attenuating the translation of target mRNAs. In Arabidopsis thaliana, the subset of class II TCP genes (plant-specific group of transcription factors) contains an miR319-binding site. One of them, AtTCP4, regulates negatively leaf growth and positively leaf senescence. In addition, miR319 targeting of TCP4 is critical for petal and stamen development and affects flowering time. The aim of this work was to identify the cDNA of InTCP4… CONTINUE READING
