RNA Interference and Development

RNA Interference and Development RNA interference consists in specific mRNA degradation in response to introduction of a double-stranded RNA, homologous in nucleotide sequence. RNA interference was found in eukaryotes and is used in genomics as a powerful method to determine the functions of genes with known nucleotide sequences. RNA interference is considered as a tool of protection against viruses and harmful consequences of mobile elements' transposals. The involvement of the components of RNA interference is considered in spermatogenesis of Drosophila melanogaster and regulation of the expression of genes in Caenorhabditis elegans responsible for temporal patterns of development. The role of RNA interference in stem cell formation and functioning is also considered. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Developmental Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

RNA interference consists in specific mRNA degradation in response to introduction of a double-stranded RNA, homologous in nucleotide sequence. RNA interference was found in eukaryotes and is used in genomics as a powerful method to determine the functions of genes with known nucleotide sequences. RNA interference is considered as a tool of protection against viruses and harmful consequences of mobile elements' transposals. The involvement of the components of RNA interference is considered in spermatogenesis of Drosophila melanogaster and regulation of the expression of genes in Caenorhabditis elegans responsible for temporal patterns of development. The role of RNA interference in stem cell formation and functioning is also considered.
