- ... MicroRNA miR408 is predicted to target the transcripts for the copper proteins plantacyanin and laccase in Arabidopsis. In this study it was found that miR408 is present in tobacco also. Its accumulation was positively induced by copper deficiency, providing additional evidence for the important role of miR408 in plant responses to nutriment conditions. To examine the functions of miR408 in tobacc ...
