Differential expression of microRNAs may regulate pollen development in Brassica oleracea

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of non-coding endogenous negative regulators that regulate gene expression at both the transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels. However, little is known about the expression characteristics of miRNAs during pollen development in Brassica oleracea. In this study, five known and three novel miRNAs were identified and their expression patterns were compared in the flower buds of B. oleracea using stem-loop reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and quantitative real-time PCR.
