 Phosphorous is an essential plant nutrient that is mainly acquired as a form of inorganic phosphate (Pi) from soil. Recently, we revealed a mechanism by which plants control Pi homeostasis to adapt to external Pi availability. This mechanism involves interplay between two Pi starvation-induced microRNAs, miR399 and miR827. In Arabidopsis, miR399 and miR827 direct the […]
