TE-piRNAs and TE-siRNAs in
. (A) Read frequency for a siRNA population (21 nt) and a piRNA population (24-30 nt) associated with various classes of TEs in An. gambiae (EnsemblMetazoa). (B) Read frequency for piRNAs mapped to class I superfamilies (LTR and NLTR TEs). (C-E) Small RNA read frequency and distribution mapped to various families of TEs. Distribution of reads uniquely mapped to An. gambiae genome (left) and reads mapped to the genome five and more times (right). N indicates the number of reads; sense reads (S) and antisense reads (AS) are shown as indicated. (F-G) Genomic profile of the 21-nt (red), 24-30-nt (blue) and piRNA “ping-pong” paired (green) reads mapped to the sense and antisense strand of gypsy transposon (represented by an abundantly expressed single full-length copy (F) and a cluster of truncated and Solo-LTR copies (G)) in the An. gambiae genome.
