Genome-wide evidence for local DNA methylation spreading from small RNA-targeted sequences in Arabidopsis

Nucleic Acids Research

Ikhlak AhmedHadi Quesneville

Abstract

Transposable elements (TEs) and their relics play major roles in genome evolution. However, mobilization of TEs is usually deleterious and strongly repressed. In plants and mammals, this repression is typically associated with DNA methylation, but the relationship between this epigeneti...read more

DNA Methylation

DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism of gene regulation, and dysregulation of DNA methylation has been associated with tumorigenesis. Discover the latest research on DNA methylation here.

Transposons for Gene Editing

Transposons can replicate and spread through the host’s genome and therefore be used as a genetic tool for analysis of gene function. Discover the latest research on the use of transposons for gene editing here.

RNA Hairpin in Yeast

Short hairpin RNA are used to interrogate gene function in model organisms. Discover the latest research in RNA hairpins in Yeast.

Epigenetics

Epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in gene expression that do not involve alteration of the DNA sequence. Here is the latest research.

DNA Methylation (Keystone)

DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism of gene regulation, and dysregulation of DNA methylation has been associated with tumorigenesis. Discover the latest research on DNA methylation here.

Non-coding Variants in Cancer (Keystone)

Mutations, single nucleotide variants and large genomic rearrangements in non-coding regions of the genome can have severe consequences such as disruption of transcription factor binding sites and functions of non-coding RNAs and can impact tumor development and progression. This feed focuses on the latest research on non-coding variants in cancer.
