MicroRNA MIMIC binding sites: Minor flanking nucleotide alterations can strongly impact MIMIC silencing efficacy in Arabidopsis

Wong, Gigi; Alonso-Peral, Maria; Li, Bingjun; Li, Junyan; Millar, Anthony


In plants, microRNA (miRNA ) target MIMIC s (MIM s) have been widely used to inhibit miRNA function. They are based on the Arabidopsis INSENSITIVE TO PHOSPATE STARVATION 1 (IPS 1 ) gene that corresponds to a non‐coding RNA containing a miR399 binding site that can be modified to sequester and inhibit any miRNA of interest. However, the efficacy of miRNA inhibition of these different MIM s can vary greatly. Using MIM s that have strong efficacy (MIM 159 ) and poor efficacy (MIM 165 ), we...[Show more]
