Scholarcy highlights

  • MicroRNAs, a type of endogenous non-coding small RNA, with a length of 20 to 24 nt, represses their target gene expression post-transcriptionally
  • Plant miRNAs are involved in growth and development, and they play an important role in physiological and biochemical regulation
  • This review mainly focuses on components of different miRNA processing pathways and how miRNA effectors inhibit the expression of target genes in plants
  • Previous studies found that there have been some primary advances in the formation of miRNAs, we hope to provide a comprehensive introduction to the biogenesis of plant miRNAs
  • Zihan Gao and Jingtao Nie have contribute to this work
