RNA interference (RNAi) has rapidly advanced from a laboratory observation into a major area of research within biology and medicine. RNAi is triggered by short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) of between 19 and 21 nucleotides in length, which induces the targeted cleavage of mRNA with sequences of homology to the siRNA. Because of its high degree of specificity(More)
Over the last few years, RNA Interference (RNAi), a naturally occurring mechanism of gene regulation conserved in plant and mammalian cells, has opened numerous novel opportunities for basic research across the field of biology. While RNAi has helped accelerate discovery and understanding of gene functions, it also has great potential as a therapeutic and(More)
