In recent years, a major breakthrough in the study of epigenetic silencing in eukaryotes came with the discovery that the RNA-interference pathway (RNAi) is generally implicated in heterochromatin assembly and gene silencing. An important and paradoxical feature of the RNAi-mediated heterochromatin pathways is their requirement for some form of transcription. In fission yeast, Schizosaccharomyces pombe, centromeric siRNAs have been shown to derive from chromatin-bound nascent transcripts… CONTINUE READING
