  • RNA interference (RNAi) is a post-transcriptional gene silencing process mediated by a unique family of RNA-binding proteins named Argonaute (Ago). In this study, we identified and characterized the gene encoding Argonaute-1 from the giant freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii . The complete open reading frame of M. rosenbergii Ago1 gene ( MrAgo1 ) consisted of 2823 nucleotides encoding a polypeptide of 840 amino acids with a predicted molecular weight of 105 kDa and an isoelectric point… CONTINUE READING
