Additional file 9: of Maize RNA PolIV affects the expression of genes with nearby TE insertions and has a genome-wide repressive impact on transcription

b1 gene overexpression in rpd1/rmr6 mutant leaves. The booster1 (b1, GRMZM2G172795) gene, which encodes a basic helix-loop-helix protein, resulted highly up-regulated in all the performed differential expression analyses, represents an hallmark of epigenetic silencing release in rpd1/rmr6 leaves compared with wild type.
