siRNA Screening for Genes Involved in HSV-1 Replication
[Abstract]  Small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) are small (typically 18-24 nucleotides) RNA molecules capable of silencing gene expression post-transcriptionally and as such, they provide a simple method by which the role of individual genes in complex cellular systems can be easily assessed. As siRNAs are easy to use experimentally, and can be designed to target any gene (including pathogens), their use is perfectly suited to and easily adapted to high-throughput genome-wide screening methodologies and a range of phenotypic assays. Here we describe the use of a large siRNA library (>8,000 genes targeted individually) to screen for and identify host factors functionally involved in the replication of a human herpesvirus (Herpes simplex virus type 1; HSV-1) (Griffiths et al., 2013; Griffiths, ... [摘要]  小干扰RNA(siRNA)是能够沉默转录后基因表达的小(通常为18-24个核苷酸)RNA分子,因此,它们提供了一种简单的方法,通过其可以容易地评估单个基因在复杂细胞系统中的作用。 由于siRNA易于实验使用,并且可以设计为靶向任何基因(包括病原体),它们的使用完全适合于并且容易地适应于高通量全基因组筛选方法学和一系列表型测定。 这里我们描述了使用大的siRNA文库(> 8,000个基因单独靶向)来筛选和鉴定功能上涉及人疱疹病毒(1型单纯疱疹病毒; HSV-1)(Griffiths)的复制的宿主因子, et al。,2013; Griffiths,2013)。
