MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short (typically 21–22 nucleotide), single-stranded noncoding RNAs that regulate gene expression, mainly via posttranscriptional gene silencing. The miRNA biogenesis pathway is complex, involving numerous proteins, and is highly conserved in plants. If this pathway is hampered, miRNA accumulation is reduced or miRNA targets cannot be properly suppressed. Arabidopsis thaliana mutants in essential […]

In order to deal with adverse environmental conditions, plants evolved numerous molecular and genetic […]
