    Regulation of rice root development by a retrotransposon acting as a microRNA sponge

    Jungnam Cho, Jerzy Paszkowski
    Retrotransposon-derived messenger RNA plays a critical role in rice root development via sequestration of miR171, which suggests a novel trans-acting regulation by transposable elements.

    Spontaneous symbiotic reprogramming of plant roots triggered by receptor-like kinases

    Martina Katharina Ried et al.
    Ectopic expression of Symbiosis Receptor-like Kinase (SYMRK) in roots of the legume Lotus japonicus resulted in spontaneous activation of nodule organogenesis and mycorrhiza-related gene expression in the absence of microbial symbionts or signalling molecules.
