Abstract

Since the discovery of RNA interference by Fire et al. (1998) (Fire, A., Xu, S., Montgomery, M.K., Kostas, S.A., Driver, S.E., Mello, C.C., 1998. Potent and specific genetic interference by double-stranded RNA in Caenorhabditis elegans. Nature 391, 806–811), small-interfering RNA, or siRNA, has become an indisputable tool for specifically silencing a target gene. The main obstacle for the development of siRNA ...
