microRNA machinery is an integral component of drug-induced transcription inhibition in HIV-1 infection

Authors : Lawrence Carpio, Zachary Klase, William Coley, Irene Guendel, Sarah Choi, Rachel Van Duyne, Aarthi Narayanan, Kylene Kehn-Hall, Laurent Meijer, Fatah Kashanchi*
RNA interference plays a significant role in manipulating cellular and viral mechanisms to maintain latency during HIV-1 infection. HIV-1 produces several microRNAs including one from the TAR element which alter the host’s response to infection

RNAi effects on actin mRNAs in Homalodisca vitripennis cells

Authors : Cristina Rosa, Shizuo G Kamita, Haley Dequine, Ha Wuriyanghan, John A Lindbo, Bryce W Falk*
The xylem feeding leafhopper Homalodisaca vitripennis (H. vitripennis) is an unusually robust and efficient vector of Xylella fastidiosa, a Gram-negative bacterium which causes several very important plant diseases. Here we investigated RNA interfere

Cell-specific RNA interference by peptide-inhibited-peptidaseactivated siRNAs

Authors : Sandra Koehn, Hendrik W Schaefer, Mirko Ludwig, Natja Haag, Ulrich S Schubert, Lydia Seyfarth, Diana Imhof, Udo R Markert, Tobias G Poehlmann*
The use of chemically-synthesized short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) is the key method of choice to manipulate gene expression in mammalian cell cultures and in vivo. Several previous studies have aimed at inducing cell-specific RNA interference (RNAi)
