Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2016)Aubergine is an RNA-binding protein of the Piwi clade functioning in germline in the piRNA pathway that silences transposons and repetitive sequences. Several mutations of this gene exist but they mostly result in truncated proteins or correspond to mutations that also affect neighboring genes. We have generated complete aubergine knock-out mutants that do not disrupt the neighboring genes. These novel mutants are characterized by PCR and sequencing. Their nature is confirmed by female sterility ...
