Do you think this miRNA is real?
MIR167a is thought, like miR160, to target mRNAs coding for auxin response factors, DNA binding proteins that are thought to control transcription in response to the phytohormone auxin. Transcriptional regulation is important for many of the diverse developmental responses to auxin signals, which include cell elongation, division, and differentiation in both roots and shoots [2].
