Plant developmental transitions: the role of microRNAs and sugars
Full PDF link Introduction Understanding the reproducibility of developmental programs between individuals of the same multicellular organism is a fundamental challenge in biology. This developmental precision reflects the conserved and intrinsic mechanisms that temporally regulate all the aspects of biological processes during development. The cues that guide these developmental events can also include extrinsic inputs, such as nutrients, light and temperature. By contrast to animals, plants utilize different developmental programs from juvenility to maturity.
