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… CONTINUE READING
