RNA interference (RNAi) is a biological process in which RNA molecules inhibit gene expression, typically by causing the destruction of specific mRNA. The process in which double-stranded RNAs silence cognate genes. Involves posttranscriptional gene inactivation (‘silencing’) both of transgenes or dsRNA. PDF | Summary RNA interference (RNAi) is a natural process of degradation or Interferencja RNA (RNAi) jest naturalnym procesem polegającym na.

RNAi speelt onder andere bij organismen een rol bij de afweer tegen virussen. RNAi is now known as precise, effici en rdfs: This technique may be also applied as a therapeutic strategy, e. This discovery opened new perspectives for research involving gene functions due intetferencja the possibility of inhibiting the expression of a specific gene through its mRNA degradation in the cytosol.

Het mRNA wordt dan op zijn beurt vertaald tot een eiwit translatie. However, users may print, download, or email articles for individual use.

However, remote access to EBSCO’s databases from non-subscribing institutions is not allowed if the purpose of the use is for commercial gain through cost reduction or avoidance for a non-subscribing institution.

Historically, it was known by other names, including co-suppression, post-transcriptional gene silencing PTGSand quelling.

Fire i Craig C. Daarnaast gebruiken zowel planten als dieren dit mechanisme om de activiteit van genen te controleren en voor genregulatie.

RNAi is a valuable research tool, both in cell culture and in living organisms, because synthetic dsRNA introduced into cells can selectively and robustly induce suppression of specific genes of interest. Fire et Craig C. Users should refer to the original published version of the material for the full abstract. RNAi-based therapy may become a powerful tool to treat many diseases whose molecular pathogenesis mechanisms have been thoroughly understood.


The aim of this paper is to present a potential role of RNAi as a therapeutic method for various diseases. RNAi may be used for large-scale screens that systematically shut down each gene in the cell, which can help to identify the components necessary for a particular cellular process or an event such as cell division.

Si distingue quindi tra meccanismi coinvolgenti molecole a doppio filamento, RNA interference in senso stretto, mediate da molecole come Short interfering RNA e fenomeni coinvolgenti miRNA, a singolo filamento. Only after these apparently unrelated processes were fully understood did it become clear that they all described the RNAi phenomenon. Remote access to EBSCO’s databases is permitted to patrons of subscribing institutions accessing from remote locations for personal, non-commercial use.

No warranty is given about the accuracy of the copy. Andrew Fire and Craig C.

Sie ist ein Spezialfall der Gen-Stilllegung. Since the discovery of RNAi and its regulatory potentials, it has become evident that RNAi has immense potential in suppression of desired genes. Electionfrom Named Graph: Er ontstaat nu een dubbelstrengs RNA. Mello shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their work on RNA interference in the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans, which they published in Fire und Craig C.

In the early s, during experiments aimed at intensifying the co lour of Petunia hybryda flowers, a new mechanism of regulation of gene expression was discovered; however, its mechanism, i.

Indien het mRNA wordt geblokkeerd kan er geen eiwit meer gevormd worden. RNAi, is een biologisch verschijnsel dat voorkomt bij de meeste eukaryoten.


RNAi provides a powerful technique for the derivation and analysis of loss-of-function phenotypes in vertebrate cells. RNA interference has an important role in defending cells against parasitic nucleotide sequences — viruses and transposons.


Al sinds de jaren tachtig van de twintigste eeuw was bekend dat de antisensketen van een mRNA-molecuul deze kan blokkeren en doen afbreken. The most well-studied outcome is post-transcriptional gene silencing, which occurs when the guide strand pairs with a complementary sequence in a messenger RNA molecule and induces cleavage by Argonaute, the catalytic component of the RISC complex. In some organisms, this process spreads systemically, despite interfrrencja initially limited molar concentrations of siRNA.

Delivery of a double stranded RNA to a model organism, Caenorhabditis elegans, triggered silencing of complementary messenger RNA sequences. In two groups led by A.

RNAi is now known as precise, effici en. This abstract may rrna abridged. Wanneer een gen actief is wordt het DNA waaruit het gen is opgebouwd overgeschreven naar enkelstrengs mRNA, dat werkt als een boodschapper. It also influences development. Dit wordt herkend door het enzym Dicer en verknipt in kleine fragmenten, “short interfering RNAs” siRNA van ongeveer 25 basenparen lang met een overhang van 2 basen aan het 3′- einde. The pathway is also used as a practical tool in biotechnology, medicine and insecticides.

RNAi is now known as precise, efficient, stable and better than antisense technology for gene suppression.
