Abstract (English)

RNA interference (RNAi) is a cellular mechanism where small RNAs (20 to 35 nucleotides in length) pair with proteins to build effector complexes guiding them to RNA targets through homologous base pairing. The piRNA pathway is a germ line specific RNAi pathway that protects the gonads of animals from harmful genetic sequences, termed transposable elements (TEs). TEs are viral DNA remnants that ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

RNA Interferenz (RNAi) beschreibt die Regulierung von RNA Moleküle durch einen Komplex, bestehend aus kleinen nicht-codierenden RNAs und einem Protein der Argonauten Familie. In diesem Komplex dient die kleine nicht-kodierende RNA der Erkennung der Ziel-RNA über komplementäre Basenpaarung, während Argonatuen die Expression der Ziel-RNA modulieren. Der piRNA Pathway ist ein RNAi Mechanismus, der ...
