ISU researchers find possible treatment for spinal muscular atrophy

... protein because of the presence of a specific intronic sequence in the gene or DNA. To make SMN2 behave as SMN1, Singh has introduced a small antisense oligonucleotide that blocks this specific intronic sequence. When the intronic sequence is blocked, SMN2 produces normal proteins and acts, in ...

A new gene silencing platform -- silence is golden

... Gene silencing molecules also have potential prophylactic and therapeutic applications based upon ongoing clinical trials using RNAi and traditional antisense approaches. For some genes that cause disease, these other approaches may not be effective enough and U1 Adaptors may provide a novel solution.' ...

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory scientists devise potential approach to treat spinal muscular atrophy

... copy of the gene to include the missing piece. Dr. Krainer and his team sought to change the splicing by introducing synthetic molecules, called antisense oligonucleotides or ASOs, that precisely match various sections of the RNA. They reasoned that if these molecules stuck to the right part of the RNA, ...

Scientists discover role for dueling RNAs

"Discovering that the antisense works in animal models is a major step forward, ... spin-off company--also indicated that the antisense was particularly effective in reducing cancer ...

Stability of mRNA/DNA and DNA/DNA duplexes modulates mRNA transcription

... regions, genes have more stable sense RNA/DNA duplexes than potential antisense RNA/DNA duplexes. "The difference between stability of sense and antisense mRNA/DNA is a property that can aid gene discovery," explains Stoynov. ...

Gene-specific Ebola therapies protect non-human primates from lethal disease

... BioPharma, a U.S. biotechnology firm. According to the study's authors, antisense drugs are useful against viral diseases because they are designed to enter ... and clear the virus." Working with a class of compounds known as antisense phosphorodiamidate morpholino oligomers, or PMOs, the team first performed ...

Researchers rein in regulatory RNAs

A large proportion of these antisense RNAs represent non-coding RNAs. Thus, the researchers expect that these ...

Researchers discover that sheep need retroviruses for reproduction

... retrovirus might have a role in development of the human placenta. The team blocked expression of the envelope of the enJSRVs using morpholino antisense oligonucleotides, which inhibit translation of specific messenger RNA. When production of the envelope protein was blocked in the early placenta, ...
