Two key approaches to RNAi that have gained substantial interest for use in gene silencing are the double-stranded small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) and the vector-based short hairpin RNAs (shRNAs). The generation of knock-out mutants in fungal pathogens by gene replacement and insertional mutagenesis is the classical method to validate virulence factors. Gene silencing can occur during either transcription or translation and is often used in research. Therefore, there is a great demand for an effective HD treatment method. In the first one, the single nitrate reductase gene in the B. cinerea genome, niaD, was silenced by transformation with a construct containing a 400-bp niaD fragment between two opposing promoters, so that a dsRNA fragment was generated. Recent new studies demonstrate that spraying double-stranded RNAs (dsRNAs) and small RNAs (sRNAs) that target essential pathogen genes on plant surfaces confer efficient crop protection. Volume 9 , Issue 2 , 2013.

Abstract: Pancreatic cancer is a devastating malignancy with a median survival of less than one year. When introduced or expressed inside the eukaryotic cells, double-stranded RNAs (dsRNAs) are cleaved into small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) of 21–23-long nucleotides. While both siRNAs and shRNAs (Figure 1) can be used for protein knockdown, there are differences in their mechanisms of action (Figure 2). Nucleic Acid Therapeutics in Huntington's Disease.
