Citation: HAKE, S.C. MICRORNAS: A ROLE IN PLANT DEVELOPMENT. CURRENT BIOLOGY. 2003. v. 13:21, R851-R852. 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.
