Expression of RNAi components in CbfA mutant JH.D cells. Expression of Dicer-like proteins (drnA, drnB), RdRPs (rrpA-C) and Argonaute genes (agnA-E) was analyzed by RNA-seq (gray bars, n = 3) in wild-type AX2 and CbfA-mutant JH.D cells from three independent cultures [28]. These three RNA samples, and RNA from three additional independent cultures, were analyzed by qRT-PCR (black bars, n = 6). Data are shown as fold change of expression with values >1 meaning that expression in the mutant cells was higher than in the control cells. Values are means ± SD from three and six independent cultures, respectively. **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001, relative to wild-type AX2 cells (Student’s t-test)
