1y ago
RNA interference (RNAi) is the process of effectively silencing or inhibiting the expression of target genes, which refers to the specific degradation of intracellular mRNA mediated by endogenous or exogenous double-stranded RNA (dsRNA). Thus, resulting in target gene silencing and corresponding loss of functional phenotype. RNAi, as a novel and powerful gene silencing tool, is widely used in biological and therapeutic research, especially for ineffective targets in the treatment of cancer and other diseases. siRNA and miRNA Comparison Similarities: The length of siRNA and miRNA are each abou ..read more

Plasmids are small DNA molecules that exist in cells and can replicate independently in vitro. Their sizes range from 1 kb to 200 kb. Most plasmids from bacterial cells are double stranded, covalently closed, circular molecules in supercoiled form. Classification of Plasmids According to different classification criteria, plasmids can be divided into different categories. According to the transfer characteristics of plasmids, plasmids can be classified as conjugated or non-conjugated. According plasmid replication characteristics, plasmids can be classified as tight or relaxed. According to t ..read more

RNA interference (RNAi) is a post-transcriptional gene silencing phenomenon mediated by small double-stranded RNA with a length of 20-30nt. This life process is highly conserved during evolution and regulates the transcription and translation of many genes encoding functional proteins. siRNA (Small interfering RNA) and miRNA (microRNA), as non-coding RNA, are common RNAi tools used in gene function research and disease treatment. siRNA is the simplest and most efficient way to knock down gene expression to study protein function in a wide range of cell types. It is also the best method for cl ..read more

CRISPR gene editing technology is another major breakthrough following TALEN technology. Upon searching “CRISPR-Cas9” within NCBI PubMed’s database, the results showed that the number of research articles increased year by year from 2002 to 2018 (as of May 26, 2018). Also, Nature, Cell, Science, and other world-class journals competed to report on this breakthrough gene editing technology. As we know, the occurrence and development of cancer is a highly complex process involving a multitude of genes and multi-channel interactions. Many scientists have been trying to solve the mechanism of can ..read more

Antiviral Immune Pathway — RNA Interference
Synbio Technologies
by Marketing Synbio
2y ago
The RNA interference (RNAi) pathway is an important pathway in antiviral immunity involving a variety of mechanisms and responses. Viruses can evade this defense by encoding viral suppressors of RNAi (VSRs). For example, baculovirus P35 can inhibit cellular small interfering RNA (siRNA) pathways. It was found that Bombyx mori nucleopolyhedrovirus, the p35 protein of BmNPV, disrupts the function of siRNA by preventing the loading of siRNA into Argonaute-2 (Ago2) and enhances the replication of BmNPV. This wiki shares how BmNPV’s p35 protein restricts the host siRNA pathway. p35 of BmNPV Restri ..read more

In terms of drug discovery, proteins can not only serve as drug targets such as ion channels, receptors, enzymes, and transporters, but can also have therapeutic potential, such as antibodies, clotting factors, hormones, growth factors, enzymes, and antimicrobial peptides. In 1982, the first recombinant protein drug, recombinant human insulin, was launched, followed by important drugs such as recombinant human growth hormone and various recombinant human cytokines. The research and development of these recombinant protein drugs promoted the rapid development of biological drugs. In recent yea ..read more

A Simple Trick to Quickly Increase Protein Expression
Synbio Technologies

Codon optimization is one of the most important strategies to improve the expression of heterologous proteins because the use of codons varies greatly among different host cells. This can be summarized as follows: codon preference, codon coordination, and codon sensitivity. Only by understanding the secret of codon usage can we better utilize the appropriate codon to express the target protein efficiently in an experiment. Codon Preference Codons are redundant, but host cells do not use every codon equally to encode amino acids. A large number of studies have shown that highly expressed genes ..read more

RNAi therapy: Human miRNA miR-675 Inhibits DUX4 Expression and Potential Treatment for Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Systrophy
Synbio Technologies
by Marketing Synbio
2y ago
Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) is a potentially devastating myopathy caused by de-repression of the DUX4 gene in skeletal muscles. Effective therapies will likely involve DUX4 inhibition. miRNAs are single-stranded, small, non-coding RNA of 22 nucleotides that play important roles as endogenous gene regulators by mediating translation repression or promoting degradation of target mRNA. While the normal expression and function of miRNAs are vital for physiological processes, aberrant expression of miRNAs has been proven to be closely related to the occurrence of various cancers ..read more
