Abstract

RNA as hunter and hunted: RNA interference (RNAi) is a general method to silence gene expression. In mammals, transient delivery of dsRNA in the form of synthetic siRNAs interferes with the expression of homologous genes by causing the RISC-dependent degradation of the mRNAs. The cellular expression from DNA vectors of shRNAs, which are processed by the Dicer enzyme into siRNAs, allows the creation of continuous cell lines and transgenic animals in which suppression of a target gene is stably maintained by RNAi.
