MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, endogenous RNAs that regulate gene expression in plants and animals. In plants, these approximately 21-nucleotide RNAs are processed from stem-loop regions of long primary transcripts by a Dicer-like enzyme and are loaded into silencing complexes, where they generally direct cleavage of complementary mRNAs. Although plant miRNAs have some conserved functions extending beyond development, the importance of miRNA-directed gene regulation during plant development is… Expand
Expression of microRNAs and its regulation in plants.
TLDR
The most recent advances in the understanding of the molecular machinery as well as the regulatory mechanisms involved in the expression of miRNAs in plants are presented. Expand
Functions of microRNAs and related small RNAs in plants
TLDR
This review focuses on the regulatory roles of plant miRNAs during development, in the adaptive response to stresses and in the miRNA pathway itself, which participates in post-transcriptional control of gene expression. Expand
The functions of microRNAs in plants.
TLDR
Several hundreds of miRNAs have been identified in plants using a various computational and/or experimental approaches, which regulate plant tissue differentiation, development and growth, control auxin signal transduction, involve in plant response to a variety of abiotic and biotic environmental stresses.

MicroRNA biogenesis and function in higher plants
TLDR
Extensive appraisal of miRNA-directed regulation during a wide array of plant development and plant responses to environmental conditions has confirmed the versatile roles of miRNAs as a key component of plant molecular biology. Expand
MicroRNAs in plants
TLDR
This work lays the foundation for studying the contributions of miRNAs to the phenotypic diversification of plants, with a focus on microRNAs at critical nodes in gene regulatory networks in eukaryotes. Expand
Plant microRNAs: new players in functional genomics
TLDR
The functional roles of miRNAs in plant development as well as stress response to biotic and abiotic environmental factors are discussed and brief information about miRNA detection and discovery techniques is presented. Expand
Small but powerful: function of microRNAs in plant development
TLDR
The regulatory networks of miRNAs in a series of developmental processes, including meristem development, establishment of lateral organ polarity and boundaries, vegetative and reproductive organ growth, etc, are summarized. Expand
MicroRNA Dynamics and Functions During Arabidopsis Embryogenesis
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short non-coding RNAs that mediate the repression of target transcripts in plants and animals. Although miRNAs are required throughout plant development, relatively little isExpand
Plant MicroRNAs: Biogenesis, Functions, and Applications
TLDR
Plant miRNAs have been well studied during developmental stages and different environmental stress conditions, but their functions and regulatory networks have yet to be understood and understanding their regulatory roles may open new avenues for crop improvement. Expand
Functional diversity of miRNA in plants
TLDR
Large numbers of miRNA targets were predicted, some of which were validated or confirmed experimentally, and the unexpected new data about miRNAs imply that the authors just make the first step in the small RNA world. Expand

Gene regulation: Ancient microRNA target sequences in plants
TLDR
The results indicate not only that microRNAs mediate gene regulation in non-flowering as well as flowering plants, but also that the regulation of this class of plant genes dates back more than 400 million years. Expand
MicroRNAs in plants.
TLDR
Mutation of an Arabidopsis Dicer homolog, CARPEL FACTORY, prevents the accumulation of miRNAs, showing that similar mechanisms direct miRNA processing in plants and animals. Expand
Evolution of microRNA genes by inverted duplication of target gene sequences in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
Evidence is provided that genes encoding miRNAs in plants originated by inverted duplication of target gene sequences, and a model for miRNA evolution is proposed that suggests a mechanism for de novo generation of new miRNA genes with unique target specificities. Expand
Prediction of Plant MicroRNA Targets
TLDR
This work predicts regulatory targets for 14 Arabidopsis microRNAs (miRNAs) by identifying mRNAs with near complementarity and identifies members of transcription factor gene families involved in developmental patterning or cell differentiation. Expand
Nuclear Export of MicroRNA Precursors
TLDR
Exposure of Exportin-5 (Exp5) mediates efficient nuclear export of short miRNA precursors (pre-miRNAs) and its depletion by RNA interference results in reduced miRNA levels. Expand

The ASRP database provides a repository for sequences of small RNAs cloned from various Arabidopsis genotypes and tissues, with tools to assist in miRNA and siRNA identification and analysis. Expand
Control of leaf morphogenesis by microRNAs
TLDR
The JAW locus is identified, which produces a microRNA that can guide messenger RNA cleavage of several TCP genes controlling leaf development, indicating that microRNA-mediated control of leaf morphogenesis is conserved in plants with very different leaf forms. Expand
Computational identification of plant microRNAs and their targets, including a stress-induced miRNA.
TLDR
Comparative genomic approaches were developed to systematically identify both miRNAs and their targets that are conserved in Arabidopsis thaliana and rice, and the expression of miR395, the sulfurylase-targeting miRNA, increases upon sulfate starvation, showing that miRNAAs can be induced by environmental stress.

The predicted regulatory targets of mammalian miRNAs were enriched for genes involved in transcriptional regulation but also encompassed an unexpectedly broad range of other functions. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that a large number of miRNAs and other small regulatory RNAs are encoded by the Arabidopsis genome and that some of them may play important roles in plant responses to environmental stresses as well as in development and genome maintenance. Expand
