Endogenous shRNAs, siRNAs, and Other Microprocessor-independent, Dicer-dependent Small RNAs in Mouse ES Cells

ABSTRACT: Canonical microRNAs (miRNAs) require two processing steps: the first by the Microprocessor, a complex of DGCR8 and Drosha, and the second by Dicer. dgcr8delta/delta mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs) have less severe phenotypes than dicer1delta/delta mESCs, suggesting a physiological role for Microprocessor-independent, Dicer-dependent small RNAs. To identify these small RNAs with unusual biogenesis, we performed high-throughput sequencing from wild type, dgcr8delta/delta, and dicer1delta/delta mESCs. Several of the DGCR8-independent, Dicer-dependent RNAs were non-canonical miRNAs. These derived from mirtrons and a newly identified subclass of miRNA precursors, which appears to be the endogenous counterpart of short hairpin RNAs (shRNAs). Our analyses also revealed endogenous siRNAs resulting from Dicer cleavage of long hairpins, the vast majority of which originated from one genomic locus with tandem, inverted short interspersed nuclear elements (SINEs). Our results extend the known diversity of mammalian small-RNA generating pathways and show that mammalian siRNAs exist in tissues outside of oocytes. Overall design: Small RNAs were sequenced from wt, dgcr8(-), and dicer(-) mouse ES cells and the frequencies of small RNA types compared between the three. This record includes Illumina-platform-generated datasets from all three samples and 454-platform-generated datasets from wt and dgcr8(-) samples. [raw data files are unavailable]
