Small RNAs affect development of seeds. These are arabidopsis seeds three, four, five, six and seven days after pollination (left to right). First row: diploid seeds. Second row: seeds from a cross between a diploid mother and tetraploid father. Third row: seeds from a cross between a tetraploid mother and diploid father. Fourth row: tetraploid seeds. Note that seeds in the third row (five to six days after pollination) are much smaller than those in the second row as a result of increased maternally inherited small RNAs. (Credit: Z.
