Expression of rRNA affects cell growth and proliferation, but mechanisms that modulate rRNA levels are poorly understood. We conducted a genetic screen for factors that negatively regulate generation of endogenous short interfering RNA (endo-siRNA) in Caenorhabditis elegans and identified a suppressor of siRNA (susi-1) and antisense ribosomal siRNAs (risiRNAs). risiRNAs show sequence complementary to 18S and 26S rRNAs and require RNA-dependent RNA polymerases (RdRPs) for their production. They act through the nuclear RNA interference (RNAi) pathway to downregulate pre-rRNA. Stress stimuli, including low temperature and UV irradiation, induced the accumulation of risiRNAs. SUSI-1 is a homolog of the human DIS3L2 exonuclease involved in 3'-5' degradation of oligouridylated RNAs. In susi-1 mutant and in low temperature-treated animals, 3'-tail oligouridylated 26S rRNA accumulated. The injection of oligouridylated rRNA elicited nuclear accumulation of NRDE-3. Our findings identify a new subset of 22G-RNAs that regulate pre-rRNA expression and a mechanism to maintain rRNA homeostasis.
