The expression patterns of the known and novel miRNAs in tomato fruit. MiR156 and miR394 were down regulated in the fruit ripening, miR159 showed down regulation in the breaker stage, while, miR396 showed a obvious increase in the breaker stage, miR828 and miR1917 were down regulated in the red ripe stage, miR482 and miRZ7 showed down regulation in the red and softening ripe stage. (Annotation: M-Marker; R-red ripe stage; B-The breaker stage; G- green ripe stage, U6 was used as the reference gene).
