Heterochromatin structure is induced by siRNA targeting HIV-1 promoter region

We transfected siRNA targeting HIV-1 promoter region into a cell line productively infected with HIV-1. ChIP analysis revealed that the RNA duplex induced transcriptional gene silencing and enrichment of Ago1, H3K9me2, and HDAC1 in HIV promoter region to form heterochromatin structure. The data indicates RNA duplex induces the latent phase of HIV infection, since the chromosome formation is very similar to the state of HIV latently infected cell lines
