Control of chicken CR1 retrotransposons is independent of Dicer-mediated RNA interference pathway

Lee, Sung; Eldi, Preethi; Cho, Soo-Young; Rangasamy, Danny


BACKGROUND: Dicer is an RNase III-ribonuclease that initiates the formation of small interfering RNAs as a defence against genomic parasites such as retrotransposons. Despite intensive characterization in mammalian species, the biological functions of Dicer in controlling retrotransposable elements of the non-mammalian vertebrate are poorly understood. In this report, we examine the role of chicken Dicer in controlling the activity of chicken CR1 retrotransposable elements in a...[Show more]
