Examples

  • As short dsRNAs can also operate directly on chromatin and suppress transcription (see below), this would be another mode to keep transposons inactive (see below under 4).

    Advanced Information: The 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine

  • Cells maintain a multi-step pathway for dealing with dsRNAs, either endogenous (those made by transcription of their own genes) or exogenous.

    Exploring the New RNA World

  • They showed that the mechanism for gene expression activation also prefers dsRNAs of ~21 nt in size and requires the Argonaute 2 protein.

  • First, an enzyme called "dicer" cuts the dsRNAs into 20-base pair fragments.
