RNA silencing is a gene regulatory process that controls development, transposable element silencing, virus resistance and heterochromatin formation. The signal associated with RNA silencing is capable of moving from cell to cell and over long distances through the plant vasculature to target homologous nucleic acid sequences, indicating the mobile species includes a nucleic acid, likely RNA . This talk with describe recent work characterising the identity of the mobile species, the genetic requirements of RNA silencing movement and the biological implications of this process.
