Innovation in biotechnology that combine molecular biology, cell biology, microfabrication and bioinformatics are moving nucleic acid technologies from futuristic possibilities into common laboratory and clinical procedures. They have potential to revolutionize biomedical research and medicine. Three variants of RNA technologies are known, namely antisense oligonucleotides, RNA interference, and ribozymes. In spite of different mechanisms of action, all of them are united by the common principle: an antisense preparation works after binding with RNA-target by forming a duplex. Today all three…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
Innovation in biotechnology that combine molecular biology, cell biology, microfabrication and bioinformatics are moving nucleic acid technologies from futuristic possibilities into common laboratory and clinical procedures. They have potential to revolutionize biomedical research and medicine. Three variants of RNA technologies are known, namely antisense oligonucleotides, RNA interference, and ribozymes. In spite of different mechanisms of action, all of them are united by the common principle: an antisense preparation works after binding with RNA-target by forming a duplex. Today all three approaches are intensively used in vivo. RNA mediated gene silencing is a powerful technology to downregulate the expression of targeted genes within the cell. Now RNA interference based therapeutics is to be released. This book provides a state-of-the-art review concerning the molecular basis as well as applications of RNA based technologies in molecular biology and medicine.
