Abstract

Endogenous microRNAs (miRNAs) are potent negative regulators of gene expression in plants and animals. Through artificially transformed miRNA (amiRNAs) to target one or several genes of interest is becoming a powerful tool for silencing genes. The characteristics and application prospect of artificial microRNA (amiRNA) technology were reviewed.
