Transposable elements (TEs) are a source of endogenous small RNAs in animals and plants. These TE-derived small RNAs have been traditionally treated as functionally distinct from gene-regulating small RNAs, such as miRNAs. Two recent reports in Drosophila and Arabidopsis have blurred the lines of this distinction. In both examples, epigenetically and developmentally regulated bursts in TE expression produce gene-regulating small RNAs. In the Drosophila early embryo, maternally deposited TE… CONTINUE READING
