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

... 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. "Thermodynamic stability o...

Researchers discover that sheep need retroviruses for reproduction

...on 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, the growth of the placenta was reduced and a certain cell type, termed giant binucleate cells, did not ...

Scientists discover role for dueling RNAs

...overed that in the case of a gene called IME4, the antisense RNA blocks the sense RNA. In other words, the gene...ase where a specific function in a higher cell for antisense RNA has been found," says Fink, senior author on the paper. "This points to an entirely new process...
