Study Detail

TitlePlants coopt a transposon-derived protein domain for gene silencing
Study TypeOther
Abstract Transposable elements (TEs) are prevalent in most eukaryotes, and host genomes have devised silencing strategies to rein in TE activity. Transcriptional silencing is generally associated with DNA methylation and short interfering RNAs (siRNAs). Here, we show that the Arabidopsis genes MAIL1 and MAIN .. [more]
