Endoplasmic Reticulum and Arabidopsis

Caption: Against a backdrop of a digital rendition of the endoplasmic reticulum, the image depicts a wild-type Arabidopsis plant (center) surrounded by mutants that are compromised in the translation inhibition activity of plant microRNAs. The developmental defects of the mutants highlight the important contribution of the translation inhibition activity of plant microRNAs to developmental patterning.
