It has been demonstrated that passenger strand cleavage is important for the activation of RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC), which is a crucial step for siRNA-mediated gene silencing. Herein, we report that isonucleotide (isoNA) modification around the cleavage site of the passenger strand would affect the in vitro potency of modified siRNAs by altering the motion pattern of the Ago2-PAZ domain. According to western blotting, q-PCR and antiviral test results, we proved that D-isonucleotide (isoNA) modification at the position 8 of the passenger strand (siMek1-S08D), which is adjacent to the cleavage site, markedly improved the in vitro potency of the modified siRNA, whereas siRNAs with D-isoNA incorporation at position 9 (siMek1-S09D) or L-isoNA incorporation at positions 8 and 9 (siMek1-S08L, siMek1-S09L) displayed lower activity compared to native siRNA. Kinetics evaluation of passenger strand cleavage induced by T. thermophilus Ago (Tt-Ago) showed that D-isoNA modification at position 8 ...

abstract = {In the previous phase of the SEE-GRID project, we implemented the SEE++ to Grid Bridge, via which normal SEE++ clients are able to access and exploit the computational power of the Austrian Grid. This document discusses the theory and the design of a new functionality of the SEE-GRID system called pathology fitting and described its two simple parallelized versions. SEE-GRID is based on the SEE++ software for the biomechanical simulation of the human eye. SEE++ was developed in the SEE-KID project by the Upper Austrian Research and the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences. SEE++ consists of a client component for user interaction and of a server component that runs various computations. The pathology fitting algorithm in SEE-GRID uses the result data of the medical examination Hess-Lancastar Test as input and it is able to determine (approximately) the pathological cause of strabismus in case of a patient. This paper addresses the following issues: How the sequential ...
Unmodified and sense strand-inactivated siRNAs were used to target five genes. In four cases, off-targets were increased due to enhanced RISC loading of the antisense strand when the sense strand was modified. The unmodified siRNAs have natural guide-strand loading characteristics. All siRNAs had comparable silencing potency. Data shown represents genes down-regulated by twofold or more. HEK293 cells were transfected with 100 nM siRNA using 0.2 μL of DharmaFECT 1. Data was analyzed at 24 hours by genomewide microarray analysis (Agilent).. Why not modify ALL siGENOME siRNAs to ensure proper strand loading? It has been demonstrated by Dharmacon scientists1 and others2 that forcing antisense (guide) strand entry into RISC may actually INCREASE off-targets due to increased loading of the guide strand and resulting off-target activity by its seed region. siGENOME siRNAs are designed with thermodynamic properties to naturally facilitate guide strand entry to RISC, which has been demonstrated to ...

Historically, RISC OS has never had package management. Installing software on RISC OS has always been a matter of dragging an application directory from a zip to a suitable location on the drive.

What happened? Was 21mer length optimal?. Their findings were quite unexpected: they observed that synthetic RNA duplexes 25-30 nucleotides in length could be up to 100-fold more potent than corresponding 21mer siRNAs. Why? The 27mers were later shown to be a substrate for Dicer, and were processed down to 21mer size. Drs. Rossi and Behlke theorize that increased potency may result from forcing the system to interact with Dicer, which then invokes a natural RISC loading pathway that is denied to 21mer RNAs. The 27mers "primed the Dicer pump", resulting in better access of the 21mer product for RISC.. This meant that less siRNA would be needed for gene silencing - i.e., that the RNAs were more potent and could be used at lower dose. Important for many reasons among them less toxicity and lower research expense.. Please see: Dong Ho Kim, Mark Behlke, Scott Rose, Mi-Sook Chang, Sangdun Choi & John Rossi.

Dicer, an RNase III type endonuclease, is the key enzyme involved in RNA interference (RNAi) and microRNA (miRNA) pathways. It is required for biogenesis of miRNAs and small interfering RNAs (siRNAs), and also plays an important role in an effector step of RNA silencing, the RNA-induced silencing co …

To gain further insight into the mechanisms underlying miRNA-induced protection, we probed several target protective proteins that are implicated in IPC, including eNOS, iNOS, HSP70, and the HSP70 transcription factor HSF-1. As shown in Figure 3A, induction of eNOS mRNA (61±6.7%) was detected in the IPC-miRNA group 2 hours following treatment. However, no changes in iNOS mRNA were observed. Western blot analysis confirmed a significant upregulation in eNOS protein (62.0±6.7%) and HSF-1 (42.7±3.0%) 4 hours after IPC-miRNA treatment. HSP70 was also significantly increased (102.3±8.9%) 48 hours after IPC-miRNA treatment. Again, similar to mRNA, iNOS protein was not significantly changed (Figure 3C and 3D).. Despite potential species differences in cardioprotection,7 it is widely known that the protective effects of IPC occur in an early phase that develops rapidly after the initial stimulus but dissipates within 2 to 3 hours and a late phase that becomes apparent 12 to 24 hours later and ...

The RNA-induced silencing complex, or RISC, is a multiprotein complex, specifically a ribonucleoprotein, which incorporates one strand of a single-stranded RNA (ssRNA) fragment, such as microRNA (miRNA), or double-stranded small interfering RNA (siRNA). The single strand acts as a template for RISC to recognize complementary messenger RNA (mRNA) transcript. Once found, one of the proteins in RISC, called Argonaute, activates and cleaves the mRNA. This process is called RNA interference (RNAi) and it is found in many eukaryotes; it is a key process in gene silencing and defense against viral infections. The biochemical identification of RISC was conducted by Gregory Hannon and his colleagues at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. This was only a couple of years after the discovery of RNA interference in 1998 by Andrew Fire and Craig Mello, who shared the 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Hannon and his colleagues attempted to identify the RNAi mechanisms involved in gene silencing, by ...
Small RNA‐mediated silencing pathways regulate a variety of cellular processes in eukaryotes (Dueck & Meister, 2014). Their effector complex, the RNA‐induced silencing complex (RISC), consists of an Argonaute protein bound by an approximately 20‐ to 30‐nt small RNA. Three major classes of Argonaute‐bound small RNAs exist. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) and small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) are processed from double‐stranded RNA precursors by the RNase III enzyme Dicer. They are loaded into the AGO subfamily of Argonaute proteins as an RNA duplex, and one of the two strands (the passenger strand) is then removed to form a mature RISC. In contrast, the third class of small RNAs, Piwi‐interacting RNAs (piRNAs), are suggested to be produced from single‐stranded precursor RNAs independently of Dicer and are loaded into the Piwi subfamily of Argonaute proteins.. In vitro RISC assembly assays using cell extracts have demonstrated that Hsp90 and Hsp90 co‐chaperones enhance the loading of miRNAs and ...
Author Summary RNA interference is a gene regulatory system in which small RNA molecules turn off genes that have similar sequences to the small RNAs. This has become a powerful tool because a researcher can use RNA interference to turn off any gene of interest in order to test its function. There is great interest in identifying the genes required for the RNA interference pathway, and one approach to identifying such genes has been to use RNA interference to turn off potential RNA interference genes and to ask whether RNA interference still functions when these genes are turned off. The goal of our report is to ask how it is possible for RNA interference to turn itself off, using a mathematical model of the system. The results show that RNA interference cannot turn itself off if the RNA interference pathway is too effective to start with, so that experiments in which RNA interference acts on itself will only work in systems having a low efficiency. The results of our model suggest possible ways to
RNA silencing involving small non coding RNA is a mechanism for gene regulation as well as an innate host cell defence mechanism against viruses. miRNA genes are most often transcribed by RNApolII, and the resulting primary (pri)-miRNA is processed in the nucleus by the RNAse type III Drosha to produce precursor (pre)-miRNA. Pre-miRNAs are then exported to the cytoplasm by Exportin-5 and processed into miRNA/miRNA* (guide/passenger) duplexes through the action of the cytoplasmic type III RNAse Dicer. miRNA/miRNA* is incorporated into the RNA-Induced Silencing Complex (RISC) where miRNA* is degraded, with miRNA serving as a guide for its mRNA target. miRNA-armed RISC targets specific mRNA to inhibit its translation or induce its degradation. Accumulating evidence suggests that the miRNA pathway also controls the replication of both RNA and DNA viruses. We have recently provided evidence for a physiological role of the miRNA-silencing machinery in controlling HIV-1 replication and latency. Type ...

RNAi is an RNA-dependent gene silencing process that is controlled by the RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC) and is initiated by short double-stranded RNA molecules in a cells cytoplasm, where they interact with the catalytic RISC component argonaute.[5] When the dsRNA is exogenous (coming from infection by a virus with an RNA genome or laboratory manipulations), the RNA is imported directly into the cytoplasm and cleaved to short fragments by Dicer. The initiating dsRNA can also be endogenous (originating in the cell), as in pre-microRNAs expressed from RNA-coding genes in the genome. The primary transcripts from such genes are first processed to form the characteristic stem-loop structure of pre-miRNA in the nucleus, then exported to the cytoplasm. Thus, the two dsRNA pathways, exogenous and endogenous, converge at the RISC.[6]. Exogenous dsRNA initiates RNAi by activating the ribonuclease protein Dicer,[7] which binds and cleaves double-stranded RNAs (dsRNAs) in plants, or short hairpin ...
Dicer-substrate siRNAs (DsiRNAs) are synthetic oligonucleotides that are processed by Dicer prior to RISC loading. DsiRNAs often show improved potency over traditional siRNAs in vitro and can have similar benefits in vivo. In collaboration with Dicerna Pharmaceuticals, systematic high throughput screening of DsiRNAs is in progress to identify ultra-potent sites in pharmaceutically relevant target genes. The results of a KRAS screening project will be discussed where over 400 synthetic siRNAs were tested in human and mouse cells. Chemical modification patterns have been defined that improve nuclease stability of the DsiRNA while retaining high potency and evade detection by the innate immune system. These improvements to DsiRNA design will be presented, which have particular utility for in vivo applications. In addition to work in RNAi, results will be presented relating to a new gene-knockdown technology that uses synthetic adaptor oligonucleotides to recruit the nuclear U1 snRNP complex to ...
RNA Helicase associated with AU-rich element (RHAU) (DHX36) is a DEAH (Aspartic acid, Glumatic Acid, Alanine, Histidine)-package RNA helicase that can bind and unwind G4-quadruplexes in DNA and RNA. the microRNA machinery is definitely supported by related and nonadditive raises in PITX1 protein manifestation on Dicer and combined RHAU/Dicer knockdown. We also demonstrate a requirement of argonaute-2, a key RNA-induced silencing complex component, to mediate RHAU-dependent changes in PITX1 protein levels. These results demonstrate a novel part for RHAU in microRNA-mediated translational rules at a quadruplex-containing 3-untranslated region. Intro Guanine-rich nucleic acids are prone to fold into unique structures. ...
RNA-interferens (RNAi) er en mekanisme, der hæmmer genudtrykkelse på translationsstadiet eller ved at hindre transkriptionen af specifikke gener. RNAi-mål inkluderer RNA fra virus og transposons (vigtigt for nogle former af det uspecifikke immunforsvar), og spiller også en rolle i reguleringen af udvikling samt vedligeholdelse af genomet. SiRNA-strenge er er nøglen til RNAi-processen og har en nukleotidsekvens, der er komplementær til den RNA-streng, der sigtes mod.

The RAS gene family is among the most commonly mutated genes within cancer, and while much research has elucidated the major downstream pathways, including MAPK and PI3K, little progress has been made in successfully targeting mutant RAS in cancer. We recently identified an interaction between the N terminal domain of Argonaute 2 (AGO2), a core component of RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC), and the Switch II domain of KRAS. Furthermore, this interaction was found in all cell lines tested, expressing either wild-type (WT) or mutant KRAS. We found that stable knockdown of AGO2 in KRAS dependent cell lines lead to a decrease in KRAS protein expression with a subsequent decrease in cellular proliferation. Conversely, the overexpression of AGO2 in these cells lead to both an increase in KRAS expression and oncogenesis. In addition, this interaction inhibits the RNAi function of AGO2 by preventing microRNA unwinding in the presence of oncogenic KRAS compared to WT-KRAS. Despite a clear association ...

Second, siRNA usually fully complement with the target mRNA; while miRNA can be partially complement with target mRNA.As a result, siRNA usually target few mRNA while miRNA can target 250-500 different mRNAs. Last but not least, siRNAs usually stem from exogenous DNA; while miRNA usually stem from endogenous DNA.. ...

The terms CISC and RISC have become less meaningful with the continued evolution of both CISC and RISC designs and implementations. The first highly (or tightly) pipelined x86 implementations, the 486 designs from Intel, AMD, Cyrix, and IBM, supported every instruction that their predecessors did, but achieved maximum efficiency only on a fairly simple x86 subset that was only a little more than a typical RISC instruction set (i.e. without typical RISC load-store limitations). The Intel P5 Pentium generation was a superscalar version of these principles. However, modern x86 processors also (typically) decode and split instructions into dynamic sequences of internally buffered micro-operations, which not only helps execute a larger subset of instructions in a pipelined (overlapping) fashion, but also facilitates more advanced extraction of parallelism out of the code stream, for even higher performance. Contrary to popular simplifications (present also in some academic texts[which?]), not all ...
In this study, WANG Yanlis lab in IBP and collaborators from Netherlands demonstrated that TtAgo can independently generate and selectively load functional DNA guides. They found that the guide-free TtAgo is able to degrade unstable double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) targets, generating short DNA products, which are selectively loaded onto TtAgo and guide subsequent DNA target cleavage. They also showed that TtAgo loads dsDNA molecules with a preference toward a deoxyguanosine on the passenger strand at the position opposite to the 5′ end of the guide strand. This explains why in vivo TtAgo is preferentially loaded with guides with a 5′ end deoxycytidine. ...
One school of thought suspected that Hsp-90 prevents the display of random abnormalities by suppressing the activities of "jumping genes" that can relocate to other areas of the genome and cause mutations. However, the Yale researchers report that their work with flies shows that a type of small RNA called Piwi-interacting RNA, or piRNA, acts in concert with Hsp-90 and another molecule to prevent both the creation of variants and the activation of existing genetic variants. Genes do play a role in protecting against harmful variations but probably work through actions of the molecules piRNA and Hsp-90 ...

RNA interference (RNAi) is a gene-silencing mechanism by which a ribonucleoprotein complex, the RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC) and a double-stranded (ds) short-interfering RNA (siRNA), targets a complementary mRNA for site-specific cleavage and subsequent degradation. While longer dsRNA are endogenously processed into 21- to 24-nucleotide (nt) siRNAs or miRNAs to induce gene silencing, RNAi studies in human cells typically use synthetic 19- to 20-nt siRNA duplexes with 2-nt overhangs at the 3-end of both strands. Here, we report that systematic synthesis and analysis of siRNAs with deletions at the passenger and/or guide strand revealed a short RNAi trigger, 16-nt siRNA, which induces potent RNAi in human cells. Our results indicate that the minimal requirement for dsRNA to trigger RNAi is an approximately 42 A A-form helix with approximately 1.5 helical turns. The 16-nt siRNA more effectively knocked down mRNA and protein levels than 19-nt siRNA when targeting the endogenous CDK9 gene,

The team set out to characterize Argonautes first using computers to compare their shapes and structures with other proteins. They found striking similarities between Argonaute structures and proteins that happened to exhibit a particular kind of "cooperative binding" known as allostery.. Allostery is a condition in which the binding of one molecule stimulates the binding of a second.. By chopping up Argonaute proteins from fruit flies and testing each piece individually, the team showed that allostery stimulated tenfold the binding of the Argonaute and miRNA complex to messenger RNA. The scientists speculate that as a result of being bound, the messenger RNA was prevented from doing its job of delivering a genes instructions to the ribosome that translates them and manufactures proteins. These studies provide new insights into Argonaute protein function, motivating the next series of questions in the field.. "MicroRNAs are all the rage," Green says. "Suddenly, in the last 10 years, theres ...

In the last decade, microRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as a new level of genome regulation in eukaryotes 6. miRNAs are short (19-24 nucleotides) noncoding RNAs that are processed from longer primary-miRNA transcripts. Mature miRNAs are incorporated into the RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC) where they typically recognize and bind to sequences in the 3 untranslated regions (3UTRs), leading to suppression of translation and/or degradation of mRNA. miRNAs are endogenous and are often coded by sequences located in intronic regions of the protein coding gene that they regulate. They can also be transcribed from intergenic regions, in which case their transcription is not directly coupled with the gene(s) they regulate. Although often associated with knock-down, as opposed to knock-out, miRNAs can also be involved in the upregulation of the genes they affect 7. Overall, miRNAs are involved in the regulation of at least one-third of the human genome and contribute to many, biological processes, ...
MicroRNA genes are transcribed by RNA polymerase II as large primary transcripts (pri-microRNA) that are processed by a protein complex containing the RNase III enzyme Drosha, to form an approximately 70 nucleotide precursor microRNA (pre-microRNA). This precursor is subsequently transported to the cytoplasm where it is processed by a second RNase III enzyme, DICER, to form a mature microRNA of approximately 22 nucleotides (Figure 1). The mature microRNA is then incorporated into a ribonuclear particle to form the RNA-induced silencing complex, RISC, which mediates gene silencing ...
