RNAi is a specific, potent, and highly successful approach for loss-of-function studies in virtually all eukaryotic organisms. Life Technologies has developed two types of small RNA molecules that function in RNAi: short interfering RNA (siRNA) molecules and microRNAs (miRNA). Life Technologies offers products for RNAi analysis in vitro and in vivo, including libraries for high-throughput applications. Your choice of tool depends on your model system, the length of time you require knockdown, and other experimental parameters.
