Abstract

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in plant growth and development. MiRNAs and their targets have been widely studied in model plants, but limited knowledge is available concerning this small RNA population and their targets in sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.). In this study, a total of 145 known miRNAs belonging to 47 families and 78 novel miRNAs were identified during seed germination using high-throughput small RNA sequencing. Furthermore, some miRNA families which have not yet been reported in monocot or eudicot species were detected in N. nucifera, indicating that these miRNAs was divergence from monocots and core eudicots during evolution. Using degradome sequencing, 2580 targets were detected for all the miRNAs. GO (Gene Ontology) and KEGG pathway analyses showed that many target genes enriched in "regulation of transcription" and involved in "carbohydrate", "amino acid and energy metabolism". Nine miRNAs and three corresponding targets of them were further validated by quantitative RT-PCR. The results present here suggested that many miRNAs were involved in the regulation of seed germination of sacred lotus, providing a foundation for future studies of sacred lotus seed longevity. Comparative analysis of miRNAs from different plants also provided insight into the evolutionary gains and losses of miRNAs in plants.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 September 2017.
All research outputs
#3,557,736
of 12,378,687 outputs
Outputs from BMC Genomics
#2,313
of 7,251 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#88,396
of 265,474 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Genomics
#70
of 268 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,378,687 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,251 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.3. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 60% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 265,474 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 64% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 268 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its contemporaries.
