  • Identification and characterization of the RNAi-related genes is the key to understanding RNAi mechanism in shrimp. In this study, we have identified and characterized a novel putative RNA helicase gene, Mj-mov-10 from the kuruma shrimp, Marsupenaeus japonicus and its implication in shrimp RNAi was demonstrated. The full-length Mj-mov-10 gene contained 3536bp, including 239 bp of 5'UTR, 2895 bp of the open reading frame (ORF) and 402bp of 3'UTR, respectively. An ORF of Mj-mov-10 could be… CONTINUE READING
