siRNA IN BIOTECHNOLOGY:


 
Small interfering RNA (siRNA) holds significant promise in the biotechnology industry. It plays a crucial role in the RNA interference (RNAi) pathway by degrading specific messenger RNA (mRNA) molecules, preventing them from being translated into proteins. This precise mechanism can potentially treat various diseases, including genetic disorders, cancers, and viral infections.

SIMPLIFIER:

What is siRNA?
Small interfering RNA (siRNA) is a type of RNA that can degrade specific messenger RNA (mRNA) molecules, preventing them from being translated into proteins.

How does siRNA work?
siRNA works by targeting and degrading mRNA molecules in the RNA interference (RNAi) pathway, thus stopping the production of certain proteins.

What diseases can siRNA potentially treat?
siRNA has the potential to treat a wide range of diseases, including genetic disorders, cancers, and viral infections.

How is siRNA different from other RNA molecules?

• mRNA: Carries genetic information for protein synthesis.
• miRNA: Regulates gene expression more broadly.
• siRNA: Targets and silences specific genes with precision.

Why is siRNA important in biotechnology?
siRNA’s ability to specifically silence genes makes it a powerful tool for disease treatment and research, offering targeted approaches for various medical conditions.
