- Zhu H. (2019) Banana sRNAome and degradome identify microRNAs functioning in differential responses to temperature stress. BMC Genomics 20(1), 33.
Temperature stress is a major environmental factor affecting not only plant growth and development, but also fruit postharvest life and quality. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of non-coding small RNAs that play important roles in various biological processes. Harvested banana fruit can exhibit distinct symptoms in response to different temperature stresses, but the underlying miRNA-mediated regulatory mechanisms remained unknown.
