RNA interference

RNA interference trims double stranded RNA, to form small interfering RNA or microRNA . These processed RNAs are incorporated into the RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC), which targets messenger RNA to prevent translation . RNA interference (RNAi) is a mechanism that inhibits gene expression more

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, abbreviated NAD+, is a coenzyme found in all living cell s. The compound is a dinucleotide, since it consists of two nucleotide s joined through their phosphate groups: with one nucleotide containing an adenosine ring, and the more
