Table 9 A higher proportion of CGs are methylated in TEs that have a sRNA mapping to them, suggesting an association between sRNAs and methylation

From: The stem rust fungus Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici induces centromeric small RNAs during late infection that are associated with genome-wide DNA methylation

  % of CG sites that are methylated in TEsRNA− (germinated spores) % of CG sites that are methylated in TEsRNA+ (germinated spores) % of CG sites that are methylated in TEsRNA− (late infection) % of CG sites that are methylated in TEsRNA+ (late infection)
sRNAs up-regulated in germinated spores 49% 55.6% 44.3% 50.2%
sRNAs up-regulated in late infection 37.2% 63.5% 33.8% 57.2%
sRNAs with no differential expression 49% 57.3% 44.3% 51.1%
sRNAs with 22 nts and 5′ adenine 41.9% 68% 37.8% 61.5%
