  1. Methods

    Generation of a luciferase-based reporter for CHH and CG DNA methylation inArabidopsis thaliana

    DNA methylation ensures genome integrity and regulates gene expression indiverse eukaryotes. In Arabidopsis, methylation occurs in threesequence contexts: CG, CHG and CHH. The initial establishment of DNAmethylat...

  2. Research

    MicroRNAs from the same precursor have different targeting properties

    The processing of a microRNA results in an intermediate duplex of two potential mature products that derive from the two arms (5′ and 3′) of the precursor hairpin. It is often suggested that one of the sequenc...
