Abstract Piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) are predominantly expressed in germline cells and function in transposon silencing. Unlike other small RNAs, piRNAs are processed from long single-stranded RNAs independently of Dicer. At the final step in piRNA biogenesis, 3' ends of precursor piRNAs (pre-piRNAs) that .. [more]
