Transcribed inverted repeats are potent triggers for RNA interference and RNA-directed DNA methylation in plants through the production of double-stranded RNA (dsRNA). For example, a transcribed inverted repeat of endogenous genes in Arabidopsis thaliana, PAI1-PAI4, guides methylation of itself as well as two unlinked duplicated PAI genes, PAI2 and PAI3. In previous work, we found that mutations in the SUVH4/KYP histone H3 lysine 9 (H3 K9) methyltransferase cause a loss of DNA methylation on… CONTINUE READING
