Examining the RNAi Mechanism

6 Items
$315.00 - $365.00 View Details

Demonstrate the power of silencing a single gene. RNA interference (RNAi) is a technique that allows you to silence the expression of a chosen gene by specifically degrading the gene's mRNA. This kit allows students to use this Nobel Prize-winning technique to silence the dpy-13 gene in the non-parasitic round worm, C. elegans. They observe wild-type worms eat a lab strain of E. coli that expresses double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) corresponding to the targeted gene, dumpy 13 (dpy-13).
