RNA Interference: Fighting Fire with Fire...

“The more” does not necessarily imply “the better”—consider an example of viral proteins. It is the absolute necessity for the infected cell to shut down viral proteins synthesis. The cell follows the homeopathic principle — “like cures like”... The 2006 Nobel Prize in physiology and medicine was awarded to American scholars Andrew Fire and Craig Mellow for the discovery of RNA interference. This happened to be a surprisingly fast recognition, which followed only 8 years after their publication...

RNAI and Antisense Technology: Rivals or Partners?

On their first encounter with RNA interference technology, then a newcomer in the toolbox of efficient gene knockout methods, many research and medical professionals believed it to become a complete alternative to the traditional antisense approach. The vivid discussion stimulated a wide coverage by Nature in 2004: a series of publications debated over possible rivalry between RNAi and antisense On their first encounter with RNA interference technology, then a newcomer in the toolbox of efficient...
