  • RNA interference (RNAi) plays a crucial role as an antiviral defense in several organisms including plants and invertebrates. An understanding of RNAi machineries especially protein components of the RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC) is essential for prior to applying RNAi as a tool for viral protective immunity in shrimp. Tudor staphylococcal nuclease (TSN) is an evolutionarily conserved protein and is one of the RISC components. In previous study, suppression of Penaeus monodon TSN (PmTSN… CONTINUE READING
