Photo-modulation of gene expression and RNA hydrolysis through photoactivatable oligonucleotide constructs
Light-activated DNA hairpin to control RNA digestion in gene silencing with mRNA-antisense complexes Technology Overview: Gene silencing can be achieved by targeting messenger RNA (mRNA) during the transcription process. Antisense oligodeoxynucleotides can be designed to bind to a complementary mRNA sequence, where formation of the DNA-mRNA duplex...
