There is now plenty of structural biology on Piwi proteins. It would be good to add a new section about this work and the domain architecture of Piwi family proteins. Alexbateman (talk) 16:53, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

This article is somewhat confused about whether it describes the Piwi protein or the Piwi domain or the Piwi protein family. This one page can probably describe them all, but at the moment they are conflated. I would suggest that the article should mainly focus on the protein and its family with the Piwi domain being a section within the article. Alexbateman (talk) 16:55, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Although PIWI proteins were initially also identified in plants, these plant proteins are now generally classified into the Argonaute-like group of argonaute proteins (similar to Arabidopsis thaliana AGO1). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.157.20.59 (talk) 21:27, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
