Genetic analysis of microRNA function in Arabidopsis thaliana development
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are 21-24-nucleotide RNAs that negatively regulate gene expression. Plant miRNAs play important roles in gene regulation by directing cleavage of target mRNAs. The high degree of complementarity between ...
Molecular genetic analyses of plant peroxisome functions
Arabidopsis peroxisomes carry out diverse functions, including fatty acid β-oxidation and conversion of indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) to indole-3-acetic acid (IAA). Peroxins are proteins necessary for peroxisome biogenesis; ...
