Abstract

A recent study led by Professor Rob Martienssen in Cell showed that 3'-tRNA-derived small RNAs can suppress long terminal repeat retrotransposon activity in mammalian cells by mechanisms independent of DNA-associated epigenetic marks, suggesting how the genome may defend itself from retrotransposon invasion during epigenetic reprogramming.
