A spatial and temporal analysis of miRNA accumulation by in situ analyses is the prerequisite of understanding the precise biological functions of miRNAs. Since miRNAs are very short molecules, their in situ analysis is technically demanding. Here, we describe a protocol for miRNA in situ detection in plants based on LNA-modified oligonucleotides probes. LNA modification significantly enhances the sensitivity and specificity of miRNA detecting probes and provides relatively easy in situ miRNA detection.
