The miR159-GAMYB pathway: silencing and function of GAMYB homologues amongst diverse plant species
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small RNAs that regulate gene expression in eukaryotes. In plants, many miRNA families mediate silencing of target genes, which are involved in plant development and plant defence. For my thesis, I have been investigating the miR159-GAMYB pathway, which appears conserved from basal vascular plants to angiosperms. GAMYB transcription factors have been demonstrated to have conserved roles of programmed cell death (PCD) in both...[Show more]
