  • RNA interference — (RNAi) is a mechanism that inhibits gene expression at the stage of translation or by hindering the transcription of specific genes. RNAi targets include RNA from viruses and transposons (significant for some forms of innate immune response), and …   Wikipedia

  • RNA-OUT — is a non coding RNA that is antisense to the RNA IN non coding RNA. Transposition of insertion sequence IS10 is regulated by an anti sense RNA which inhibits transposase expression when IS10 is present in multiple copies per cell. RNA OUT… …   Wikipedia
