Trans-acting small interfering RNAs (ta-siRNAs; TAS) emerge as a class of plant-specific small RNAs that are initiated from microRNA-mediated cleavage of TAS gene transcripts. It has been revealed that ta-siRNAs are generated by the sequential activities of SUPPRESSOR OF GENE SILENCING3 (SGS3), RNA-DEPENDENT RNA POLYMERASE6 (RDR6), and DICER-LIKE4 (DCL4), and loaded into ARGONAUTE1 (AGO1) proteins to posttranscriptionally regulate several target genes by messenger RNA cleavage in trans.
