Accumulation of Dicer cleavage products in cells infected with TE/3'2J/GFP or TE/3'2J/B2 virus. Cell lysates were generated from Aag2 cells 36 hours post mock-, TE/3'2J/GFP, or TE/3'2J/B2 virus-infection (MOI = 0.01) (indicated to left of each panel). A synthetic 500 bp biotinylated dsRNA product was introduced into the lysates and, at indicated time points, samples were taken and the presence of small RNAs was determined by Northern blot analysis. Ethidium bromide-stained ribosomal RNAs located below each blot serve as loading controls. Arrows indicate position of 25 and 19 nucleotide markers.
