Stresses are defined as a variety of environmental factors that pose adverse impacts on plant growth and survival. Rice is an important food crop, whose quality and yield may be afected by environmental stresses. MicroRNAs play an important role in response to stresses, which regulate gene expression at the posttranscription level by cleaving target mRNAs and inhibiting mRNA translation. This paper summarized the mechanism of action of miRNAs a d introduced research progress of miRNAs in rice under biotic and abiotic stresses, which provided reference for revealing the functional role of rice miRNAs in stress resistance.

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding endogenous RNAs (18-24 nucleotides) which regulate gene expression at posttranscriptional level either by degrading the target mRNA (plants) or by blocking the protein translation through binding with 3′ UTR of the target mRNA (animals). Though...
