Wolbachia interferes with the intracellular distribution of Argonaute 1 in the dengue vector Aedes aegypti by manipulating the host microRNAs.

Abstract

Argonaute proteins (AGOs) are vital components of the RNA-induced silencing complex in gene silencing. AGOs are indispensable for microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis as well as function, and are intracellularly localized to both the cytoplasm and the nucleus. Cytoplasmic AGO-miRNA complexes are mainly involved in cleavage or translational repression of target mRNAs… (More)
