Inhibiting plant microRNA activity: Molecular SPONGEs, target MIMICs and STTMs all display variable efficacies against target microRNAs
Elucidation of microRNA (miRNA) function through a loss-of-function approach has proven difficult due to extensive genetic redundancy among most plant and animal miRNA families. Consequently, miRNA decoy technologies such as target MIMICs (MIMs) and short tandem target MIMICs (STTMs) in plants or molecular SPONGEs (SPs) in animals have been developed to generate loss-of-function phenotypes by perturbing endogenous miRNA activity. To test whether SPs can inhibit plant miRNA activity, synthetic...[Show more]
