A computational method systematically identifies intergenic or noncoding gene-originated target mimics (eTMs) for 20 conserved microRNAs in Arabidopsis and rice and validates the biological functions of some eTMs. Target mimicry is a recently identified regulatory mechanism for microRNA (miRNA) functions in plants in which the decoy RNAs bind to miRNAs via complementary sequences and therefore block the interaction between miRNAs and their authentic targets. Both endogenous decoy RNAs (miRNA… Expand
Altered expression profiles of microRNA families during de-etiolation of maize and rice leaves
TLDR
This study provided the comprehensive list of miRNA that showed altered expression during the de-etiolation process and a number of candidate miRNAs that might play regulatory roles in C3 and C4 photosynthesis. Expand
PeTMbase: A Database of Plant Endogenous Target Mimics (eTMs)
TLDR
An online plant eTM database, called PeTMbase, is presented, which provides high quality information regarding miRNA:eTM modules and will aid functional genomics studies particularly, on miRNA regulatory networks. Expand
PceRBase: a database of plant competing endogenous RNA
TLDR
A Plant ceRNA database is developed which contains potential ceRNA target-target, and ce RNA target-mimic pairs from 26 plant species, and users can use PceRBase to predict novel competing mimic-target and target–target interactions from their own data. Expand
Genome-wide identification and functional analysis of lincRNAs acting as miRNA targets or decoys in maize
TLDR
This work provides a comprehensive view of miRNA-regulated networks and indicates that lincRNAs can participate in a layer of regulatory interactions as miRNA targets or decoys in plants, which will enable in-depth functional analysis of linc RNAs. Expand

TLDR
By following the step-by step instructions provided in this study, novel eTMs can be identified and annotated effectively in public plant transcriptome libraries. Expand
Genome-wide analysis of tomato long non-coding RNAs and identification as endogenous target mimic for microRNA in response to TYLCV infection
TLDR
It is found that several lncRNAs acted as competing endogenous target mimics for tomato microRNAs involved in the response to TYLCV infection that are important components of theTYLCV network in tomatoes. Expand
Long Non-Coding RNAs as Endogenous Target Mimics and Exploration of Their Role in Low Nutrient Stress Tolerance in Plants
TLDR
The role of identified putative lncRNAs that may act as eTMs for nutrient-responsive microRNAs (miRNAs) in plants are discussed to enhance current understanding of the role of lnc RNAs in nutrient homeostasis in plants. Expand
ceRNAs in plants: computational approaches and associated challenges for target mimic research
TLDR
This work provides a bioinformatics approach for the prediction of TM motifs potentially cross-targeting both members within the same or from different miRNA families, based on the identification of consensus miRNA-binding sites from known TMs across sequenced genomes, transcriptomes and known miRNAs.

A long noncoding RNA involved in rice reproductive development by negatively regulating osa-miR160
TLDR
Osa-eTM160 attenuated the repression of osa-miR160 on oSA-ARF18 mRNAs during early anther developmental stages through the target mimicry manner, therefore to regulate rice seed setting and seed size and indicated that lncRNAs with eTM functions may serve as temporal regulators to modulate the effects of miRNAs at specific developmental stages.

A Collection of Target Mimics for Comprehensive Analysis of MicroRNA Function in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
Phenotypes of plants expressing target mimics directed against miRNAs involved in development were in several cases consistent with previous reports on plants expressing miRNA–resistant forms of individual target genes, indicating that a limited number of targets mediates most effects of these miRN as well as insight into modes of miRNA action. Expand
Target mimicry provides a new mechanism for regulation of microRNA activity
TLDR
Target mimicry can be generalized beyond the control of Pi homeostasis, as demonstrated using artificial target mimics and coined to define this mechanism of inhibition of miRNA activity. Expand
Target mimics: an embedded layer of microRNA-involved gene regulatory networks in plants
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that target mimicry may be widely implicated in regulating miRNA activities in planta, and it is hoped this study could expand the current understanding of miRNA-involved regulatory networks. Expand
Regulation of Gene Expression in Plants through miRNA Inactivation
TLDR
By altering the sequence of the miRNA decoy sites, the authors were able to attenuate miRNA inactivation, which allowed for fine regulation of native miRNA targets and the production of a desirable range of plant phenotypes, demonstrating mi RNA decoys are a flexible and robust tool for studying miRNA function, but also for targeted engineering of gene expression in plants.

SeqTar: an effective method for identifying microRNA guided cleavage sites from degradome of polyadenylated transcripts in plants
TLDR
A computational method called SeqTar is developed that allows more mismatches and critically mismatch or G:U pair at the position 10 or 11 in the miRNA complementary sites and is an effective method for identifying miRNA targets in plants using degradome data sets. Expand
Redefining MicroRNA Targets

TLDR
Many computationally identified miRNA targets may actually be competitive inhibitors of mi RNA function, preventing miRNAs from binding their authentic targets by sequestering them, and this new conception of miRNA regulation could have profound implications on the authors' assumptions about miRNA function.

Effective Small RNA Destruction by the Expression of a Short Tandem Target Mimic in Arabidopsis[C][W]
TLDR
It is shown that the expression of a short tandem target mimic (STTM), which is composed of two short sequences mimicking small RNA target sites, separated by a linker of an empirically determined optimal size, leads to the degradation of targeted small RNAs by small RNA degrading nucleases. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that bra‐MIR1885 is a new miRNA gene that originated through inverted duplication events from TIR–NBS–LRR class disease‐resistant protein‐coding gene sequences, which became bra‐miR1885 targets. Expand
Evolution of plant microRNAs and their targets.
TLDR
A coherent set of hypotheses explaining the birth, selection and death of miRNAs in land plants are provided, suggesting at least two independent origins from an ancestral small RNA-producing pathway. Expand

The authors state that these mRNAs, dubbed “competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs), define a new layer of regulation of miRNA activity that has only recently been discovered. Expand
