"RNA silencing and heritable epigenetic effects in tomato and Arabidopsis" RNA silencing and heritable epigenetic effects in tomato and Arabidopsis, of these small RNAs guide the Argonaut/Piwi protein to a complementary RNA and they are negative regulators of gene expression acting at the level of messenger RNA turnover or translation. Others participate in more complex epigenetic systems affecting chromatin or they act as part of an RNA signal that moves
