On my desk to ready this morning? A new report that suggests the possibility of a Dicer-independent pathway for generation of siRNAs in flies.
Tchurikov & Kretova (2011) Both piRNA and siRNA Pathways Are Silencing Transcripts of the Suffix Element in the Drosophila melanogaster Germline and Somatic Cells.PLoS One. 6(7):e21882. PubMed ID: 21779345
The goals of the FlyRNAi blog are (1) to help biological researchers learn more about RNAi, cell-based assays, Drosophila cell culture, high-throughput screening, fly biology and other related topics, (2) to facilitate conversation about these topics, and (3) to increase visibility of the DRSC. Feedback and questions are welcome.
