In the long evolutionary history, plant has evolved elaborate regulatory network to control functional gene expression for surviving and thriving, such as transcription factor‐regulated transcriptional programming. However, plenty of evidences from the past decade studies demonstrate that the 21–24 nucleotides small RNA molecules, majorly microRNAs (miRNAs) play dominant roles in post‐transcriptional gene regulation through base pairing with their complementary mRNA targets, especially prefer… Expand

Big impacts by small RNAs in plant development.
TLDR
A few surprising differences in small RNA function seem to exist between monocots and dicots regarding meristem initiation and sex determination, and integrating these unique functions into the overall scheme for plant growth will give a more complete picture of how they have evolved as unique developmental systems.

TLDR
More function and expression studies will be necessary in order to elucidate the common miRNA-mediated regulatory mechanisms that underlie tolerance to different abiotic stresses, and the use of artificial miRNAs, as well as overexpression and knockout/down of both mi RNAs and their targets, will be the best techniques for determining the specific roles of individual miRNAAs in response to environmental stresses.
