Skårn M, Eike MC, Meza TJ, Mercy IS, Jakobsen KS and Aalen RB. An inverted repeat transgene with a structure that cannot generate double-stranded RNA, suffers silencing independent of DNA methylation. Transgenic Res. 2006;15 (4) :489-500.

Meza TJ, Stangeland B, Mercy IS, Skårn M, Berg A, Butenko MA, Haslekås C, Nymoen DA, Håkelien A-M, Meza-Zepeda LA and Aalen RB. Analysis of single-copy Arabidopsis T-DNA transformed lines show that the presence of backbone vector sequences, short inverted repeats and DNA methylation is not sufficient or necessary for the induction of transgene silencing. Nucleic Acids Research 2002; 30: 4556-4566.
