The Tudor protein Veneno assembles the ping-pong amplification complex that produces viral piRNAs in Aedes mosquitoes

Nucleic Acids Research

Joep JoostenRonald P van Rij

Abstract

PIWI-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) comprise a class of small RNAs best known for suppressing transposable elements in germline tissues. The vector mosquito Aedes aegypti encodes seven PIWI genes, four of which are somatically expressed. This somatic piRNA pathway generates piRNAs from viral...read more

Transposable Elements

Transposable elements (tes) have profound effects on the structure, function and evolution of their host genomes.

Cajal Bodies & Gems

Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.

PIWI-interacting RNAs

Piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) are a subset of small RNAs predominantly expressed in the germlines of various species and have key regulatory functions. Here is the latest research.

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.

Non-coding Variants in Cancer

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. Here is the latest research.

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.
