Transcription and methylation profiling by high throughput sequencing of maize B73 inbred line

ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to measure DNA methylation and siRNA expression across the maize genome. The experimental data was derived from shotgun bisulfite sequencing, siRNA sequencing, and mRNA sequencing (Illumina, single end for all three)

Small RNA-mediated regulation of chromatin structure is an important means of suppressing unwanted genetic activity in diverse plants, fungi, and animals. In plants specifically, 24-nt siRNAs direct de novo methylation to repetitive DNA, both foreign and endogenous, in a process known as RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM). Many components of the de novo methylation machinery have been identified recently, including multiple RNA polymerases, but specific genetic features that trigger methylation  ...[more]
