RNA Interference (RNAi)

RNA interference (RNAi) is a successful gene-silencing process that targets specific messenger RNA (mRNA) and lowers protein expression. OriGene provides comprehensive and innovative RNAi tools such as shRNA, siRNA, and miRNA. Utilizing OriGene's superior RNAi technology can aid you in the exploration and manipulation of gene expression.
