MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, endogenous RNAs that are regulators of gene expression in plants and animals. And, miRNAs have been known for years to be important for phosphate, sulphate and copper deprivation responses in plants. In Arabidopsis, small RNA deep sequencing associated with nitrate response had been analyzed. However, information about the way by which miRNA are regulated by abiotic stresses in general and by low nitrate in particular is unavailable for maize. In this study, we used SmartArrayTM microarray system to detect miRNAs responding to chronic nitrate limiting conditions in roots and leaves in maize. Leaf and root under normal and low nitrate conditions were analyzed with three biological replicates. So there are 12 samples in this study.
