Innovative technology that enables RNAi in difficult to transfect cells
GE Healthcare Dharmacon, Inc.

Investigations at Dharmacon have led to the development of innovative siRNA molecules that can be delivered into difficult-to-transfect cells without additional lipid reagents, virus, or instruments. This technology, Accell siRNA reagents, enables gene knockdown for functional genomic studies in a wide variety of cell types. In some instances, cells can be continuously dosed with Accell siRNAs to enable target gene knockdown for extended durations.

THe AtSCL26 transcription factor controls cross-talk between GA and N root architecture in Arabidopsis thaliana roots
University of Warwick

Phenotypic and molecular evidence supports the hypothesis that developmental program enabling nodule formation arose during evolution from a lateral root ‘blueprint’ pre-existing in all higher plants . We reasoned that analyzing Arabidopsis genes orthologous to regulators of nodulation could shed insight on control of lateral root development. This led us to the discovery that an Arabidopsis GRAS family transcription factor controls lateral root development under specific nitrogen conditions.
