Abstract
In Drosophila, the RNA interference (RNAi) genes participate in Polycomb (Pc)-mediated transgene silencing. Recently, the involvement of the RNAi genes in Pc silencing, pairing-sensitive silencing and long-range contacts among Pc-associated sequences has been explored. These Pc-associated sequences are involved with the control of the proper expression of developmental HOX genes.
