Screening effective short interfering RNA/short hairpin RNA for inhibition of human astrovirus ORF2 gene expression in cultured cells


In this study, we have evaluated four different 21-nt duplexes of small interfering RNA (siRNA-469, siRNA-852, siRNA-1802 and siRNA-1806) that specifically target the ORF2 gene of human astrovirus (HAstV) in inhibiting HAstV capsid protein expression in transfected BHK-21 cells. Furthermore, fluorescence analysis, real-time quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) and… (More)
