MIR168a thought to target mRNAs coding for Argonaute (AGO1), which is required for axillary shoot meristem formation and leaf development in Arabidopsis. It has been suggested that AGO1 may also influence miRNA accumulation in plants and that miR168 may act as a negative-feedback mechanism for controlling expression of the AGO1 gene [2].
