Application notes


RNA interference (RNAi) is a biological process in which RNA molecules inhibit gene expression. Two types of small
ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules, microRNA (miRNA) and small interfering RNA (siRNA) are central to RNA interference. RNAi is a valuable research tool, both in cell culture and in living organisms, because synthetic dsRNA
introduced into cells can selectively induce suppression of specific genes of interest.
