    • Promoter DNA Hypermethylation and Gene Repression in Undifferentiated Arabidopsis Cells 

      Berdasco, María; Alcázar, Rubén; García-Ortiz, M.V.; Ballestar, Esteban; Fernández, Agustín F.; Roldán-Arjona, Teresa; Tiburcio, Antonio F.; Altabella, Teresa; Buisine, Nicolas; Quesneville, Hadi; Baudry, Antoine; Lepiniec, Loïc; Alaminos, Miguel; Rodríguez, Roberto; Lloyd, Alan; Colot, Vincent; Bender, Judith; Canal, María Jesús; Esteller, Manel; Fraga, Mario F. (Public Library of Science, 2008)
      Maintaining and acquiring the pluripotent cell state in plants is critical to tissue regeneration and vegetative multiplication. Histone-based epigenetic mechanisms are important for regulating this undifferentiated state. ...
    • Three Groups of Transposable Elements with Contrasting Copy Number Dynamics and Host Responses in the Maize (Zea mays ssp. mays) Genome 

      Díez, Concepción M.; Meca, Esteban; Tenaillon, Maud I.; Gaut, Brandon S. (Public Library of Science, 2014)
      Most angiosperm nuclear DNA is repetitive and derived from silenced transposable elements (TEs). TE silencing requires substantial resources from the plant host, including the production of small interfering RNAs (siRNAs). ...
