Interpretive Summary: MicroRNAs have been shown to regulate developmental processes in plants, using both translational repression and cleavage of the target gene's RNA transcript. This paper reviews recent findings.

Technical Abstract: MicroRNAs are known to regulate development in Caenorhabditis elegans by translational repression of target genes. MiRNAs have now been shown to regulate developmental processes in plants.
