Intracellular survival plays a central role in the pathogenesis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. To identify M. tuberculosis genes required for intracellular survival within macrophages, an M. tuberculosis H37Rv plasmid library was constructed by using the shuttle vector pOLYG. This plasmid library was electroporated into Mycobacterium smegmatis 1-2c, and the(More)
Despite the widespread application of RNA interference (RNAi) as a research tool for diverse purposes, the key step of strand selection of siRNAs during the formation of RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC) remains poorly understood. Here, using siRNAs targeted to the complementary region of Survivin and the effector protease receptor 1 (EPR-1), we show(More)
