Small RNA pathways are present and functional in the angiosperm male gametophyte.

Abstract:

Small non-coding RNAs are essential for development of the sporophyte, the somatic diploid phase of flowering plants. They are integral to key cellular processes such as defense, generation of chromatin structure, and regulation of native gene expression. Surprisingly, very little is known of their presence and function in the male haploid phase of plant development (male gametophyte/pollen grain), where dramatic cell fate changes leading to gametogenesis occur over just two mitotic divisions...
