Michele MarconciniMariangela Bonizzoni

Abstract

Current knowledge of the piRNA pathway is based mainly on studies on the model organism Drosophila melanogaster, where three proteins of the Piwi subclade of the Argonaute family interact with PIWI-interacting RNAs to silence transposable elements in gonadal tissues. In mosquito species...read more
