GO:0035279: mRNA cleavage involved in gene silencing by miRNA (Biological process)

"The process in which microRNAs (miRNAs) direct the cleavage of target mRNAs. Once incorporated into a RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC), a miRNA base pairing with near-perfect complementarity to the target mRNA will typically direct targeted endonucleolytic cleavage of the mRNA. Many plant miRNAs downregulate gene expression through this mechanism." [GOC:dph, GOC:mtg_lung, PMID:14744438, PMID:15196554]
