Exogenous RNA molecules can be incorporated into eukaryotic cells and can exert a variety of biological effects. We have previously described a model system for correcting genetic alterations of an Aspergillus nidulans mutant using homologous RNA and this phenomenon was named retrotransformation. In the present study, the retrotransformation of A. nidulans was performed with heterologous RNA which was extracted from rat macrophages stimulated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Protoplasts of A… CONTINUE READING
