C. elegans rrf-1 Mutations Maintain RNAi Efficiency in the Soma in Addition to the Germline

Gene inactivation through RNA interference (RNAi) has proven to be a valuable tool for studying gene function in C. elegans. When combined with tissue-specific gene inactivation methods, RNAi has the potential to shed light on the function of a gene in distinct tissues. In this study we characterized C. elegans rrf-1 mutants to determine their ability to… CONTINUE READING
