Small RNAs in plants:
fundamental regulators of gene expression

Small silencing RNAs are the hallmark of a collection of gene regulatory mechanisms known as RNA silencing. In RNA silencing, the small (20-30 nucleotide long) RNAs act as specificity determinants that use base pairing to guide repressive protein complexes to complementary RNA molecules. This simple, versatile mehanism is of tremendous importance in regulation of mRNAs important for plant and animal development and stress responses, particularly via a specific class of small RNAs called microRNAs (miRNAs).
