[…] and LM fractions, respectively. Apart from two clusters (Cluster14 and Cluster24) of the HM fraction, all the other clusters overlap clusters reported to be expressed in bull testis libraries at the piRNA cluster database (http://www.smallrnagroup.uni-mainz.de/piRNAclusterDB.html, []). 74.5% and 85.0% of the unique putative piRNA sequences mapping within clusters in the HM and LM fractions, respe […]


Paternal pachytene piRNAs are not required for fertilization, embryonic development and sperm mediated epigenetic inheritance in mice

[…] gi-bin/RNAfold.cgi) with the default folding criteria. The detailed mapping process was performed as previously described . Then, the nohit reads were blasted against the piRNA database download from piRNA cluster-database (http://www.uni-mainz.de/FB/Biologie/Anthropologie/492_ENG_HTML.php) and piRNA Bank (http://pirnabank.ibab.ac.in/request.html) and to identify homology piRNA. No more than one m […]
