Drosophila RNAi Service

At CD BioSciences, we are passionate about supporting groundbreaking research in the field of Drosophila genetics. RNA interference (RNAi) has emerged as a powerful tool to investigate gene function and regulation in Drosophila, paving the way for a deeper understanding of biological processes and disease mechanisms. Our Drosophila RNAi Service is designed to empower researchers with the most reliable and efficient RNAi techniques, enabling them to unravel the complexities of gene function in their studies.

How RNAi Works in Drosophila

RNA interference (RNAi) is a powerful genetic mechanism present in cells that regulates gene expression. It involves the use of small RNA molecules to silence or "knock down" specific target genes. In the context of Drosophila research, our RNAi service harnesses this mechanism to selectively suppress gene activity. We design and synthesize short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) that are complementary to the target gene's mRNA. Once introduced into Drosophila cells, these siRNAs trigger the degradation of the target mRNA, effectively reducing the production of the corresponding protein. This precise gene silencing enables us to study gene function, identify therapeutic targets, and uncover biological pathways in Drosophila research.

Introduction of dsRNA into Drosophila

Introduction of dsRNA (double-stranded RNA) into Drosophila is a widely employed technique in functional genomics to investigate gene function. By inducing RNAi, this method allows for specific gene silencing. siRNAs are generated from the introduced dsRNA, targeting mRNA degradation and reducing protein expression. The process involves the injection of dsRNA into early Drosophila embryos or tissue-specific expression using Gal4/UAS system. This powerful tool enables researchers to analyze the effects of gene knockdown on developmental processes, behavior, and disease models in Drosophila, providing valuable insights into gene function and regulatory networks.
