Target plots (t-plots) of identified miRNA targets using degradome sequencing. Representative t-plots (a-d) are shown, one from each of four different libraries of the cotyledon (25–50 mg fresh weight range), seed coat (25–50 mg), cotyledon (100–200 mg) and seed coat (100–200 mg). Red arrows indicate signatures consistent with miRNA-directed cleavage. mRNA:miRNA alignments along with the detected cleavage frequencies (absolute numbers) are shown above the black arrow. The red colored italicized nucleotide on the target transcript from the 3’ end indicates the cleavage site detected in the degradome library.
