Bronkhorst AW, van Cleef KW, Venselaar H, van Rij RP. A dsRNA-binding protein of a complex invertebrate DNA virus suppresses the Drosophila RNAi response. Nucleic Acids Res. 2014 Oct 29;42(19):12237-48. PMID: 25274730.
From the abstract: "... Here, we show that RNAi is suppressed in IIV-6-infected cells and we mapped RNAi suppressor activity to the viral protein 340R. ... Together, our findings indicate that, in analogy to RNA viruses, DNA viruses antagonize the antiviral RNAi response."
Gandhi SG, Bag I, Sengupta S, Pal-Bhadra M, Bhadra U. Drosophila oncogene Gas41 is RNAi modulator that intersects heterochromatin and siRNA pathway. FEBS J. 2014 Oct 16. PMID: 25323651.
From the abstract: "... These findings suggest that, Drosophila Gas41 guides the repeat associated gene silencing, and Dicer1 interaction thereby depicting a new role of the Gas41. ... In Drosophila, Gas41 plays a dual role. In one hand, it seems to participate with Dicer 1 in the RNAi pathway and alternatively also participate in repeat-induced gene silencing by accumulating heterochromatin proteins at the mw array promoters. ..."
