General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
Male tissue specific siRNA target sequence
Category of DNA sequence
  • SiRNA target sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Zea mays - Maize, Corn, MAIZE
Donor organism point of collection
The siRNA target sequence was taken from a portion of EU974548 with multiple binding sites of the most abundant siRNAs present in tassel tissues. Deep sequencing of small RNA populations in tassels at different development stages elucidated the male specific siRNA populations.
Additional Information
Additional Information
The sequence shares homology to endogenous small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) abundant in male tissues (tassels). Thus, when siRNAs are produced in the male tissues, the RNA interference machinery will target the target sequence and cause degradation of the full transcript. This allows for an inducible, male tissue-specific system to be created, where expression will be silenced in the male tissues.
