Status Public on Jul 01, 2021
Title Nurse cellĀ­-derived small RNAs define paternal epigenetic inheritance in Arabidopsis
Organism Arabidopsis thaliana
Experiment type Methylation profiling by high throughput sequencing
Expression profiling by high throughput sequencing
Non-coding RNA profiling by high throughput sequencing
Summary We report here that gentic methylation in the male germline, from meiocytes to sperm, is established by siRNAs transcribed from transposons with imperfect sequence homology. These siRNAs are synthesized by meiocyte nurse cells (tapetum) via activity of the chromatin remodeler CLASSY3, which is specifically expressed in tapetal cells. Plants that produce siRNAs only in the tapetum have broadly normal DNA methylation of the entire germline. Finally, we also report that these nurse cell-derived siRNAs (niRNAs) silence germline transposons, thereby safeguarding genome integrity. Our results reveal the crucial role of tapetal niRNAs in germline methylation reprogramming, which is remarkably analogous to piRNA-mediated reprogramming in animal germlines.
