MicroRNA targets were predicted using psRNAtarget program (http://plantgrn.noble.org/psRNATarget/) with default parameter settings Brassinosteroid-responsive genes were determined by the AtGenExpress database (Arabidopsis eFP Browser, http://bbc.botany.utoronto.ca/efp/cgi-bin/efpWeb.cgi?dataSource=Hormone)
