microRNAs (miRNAs) are small approximately 21-nucleotide RNAs that function posttranscriptionally to regulate gene activity. miRNAs function by binding to complementary sites in target genes causing mRNA degradation and/or translational repression of the target. Since the discovery of miRNAs in plants in 2002 much has been learned about the function of these small regulatory RNAs. miRNAs function broadly to control many aspects of plant biology and plant development. This review focuses on the… CONTINUE READING
