SUMMARY RNA silencing is a conserved eukaryotic pathway involved in suppression of gene expression via sequence-specific interactions that are mediated by nt 21-24-long RNA molecules. In plants, cell-autonomous and noncell-autonomous steps of RNA silencing form the basis of an elaborate immune system that is activated by, and targeted against, viruses. As a counter-defensive strategy, viruses have evolved suppressor proteins that inhibit various stages of the silencing process. These… CONTINUE READING
