The Piwi-piRNA pathway represents a germline-specific transposon-defense system. C. elegans Piwi, prg-1, is a non-essential gene and triggers a secondary RNAi response that depends on mutator genes, endo-siRNAs (22G-RNAs), and the 22G-RNA-binding Argonaute protein HRDE-1. Interestingly, silencing of PRG-1 targets can become PRG-1 independent. This state,(More)
