The RNA export factor ALY1 enables genome-wide RNA-directed DNA methylation (Plant Cell)

The epigenetic control of gene expression is crucial for genomic stability and allows the defence against invading DNA that for instance could be derived from viruses or transposable elements. In this context, the RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM) plays an essential role in silencing of genes via epigenetically modifying the DNA. Here, small RNA molecules direct […]
