Proof in humans of RNA interference

Researchers and clinicians have published the first proof that a targeted nanoparticle-used as an experimental therapeutic and can turn off an important cancer gene using a mechanism known as RNA interference.



New RNA interference technique

Researchers report that they have successfully used RNA interference to turn off multiple genes in the livers of mice, an advance that could lead to new treatments for diseases of the liver and other organs.



RNA interference found in budding yeasts

Some budding yeast species have the ability to silence genes using RNA interference. Until now, most researchers thought that no budding yeasts possess the RNAi pathway because Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the protoypical model budding yeast does not.
