In vivo suppression of mafA mRNA with siRNA and analysis of the resulting alteration of the gene expression profile in mouse pancreas by the microarray method.


Maf is a family of transcription factor proteins that is characterized by a typical bZip structure, and one of the large mafs, mafA is a strong transactivator of insulin. To explore the role of mafA in the pancreas, we modified the mafA mRNA level in vivo in mice by the RNA interference (siRNA) technique and analyzed the resulting alteration of the… (More)
