- ... MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in regulating plant responses to various environmental stresses. In our study, overexpression of miR1916 in tomato (OE-1) reduced its tolerance to drought. The miR1916-silenced transgenic plants (ST-1 and Anti-7) significantly increased resistance to drought stress. The transgenic tobacco plants also have a similar result in displaying the tolerance of droug ...
