E-MEXP-295 - RNAi knock down of four Argonaute paralogs (AGO1, AGO2, PIWI and Aubergine) and the microRNA-processing enzyme Drosha in Drosophila

RNA silencing pathways are conserved gene regulation mechanisms that lead to degradation, translational repression or transcriptional silencing of target-transcripts selected based on complementarity with small RNA molecules. The fraction of the genome regulated by these pathways has not been established. Argonaute proteins play fundamental roles in RNA silencing. To identify their physiological targets at the genomic level, we examined expression profiles in Drosophila cells depleted of 4 Argonaute paralogs (i.e. AGO1, AGO2, PIWI or Aubergine). We also profiled cells depleted of the microRNA (miRNA)-processing enzyme Drosha.
