NHLBI Media Availability: Scientists develop method of producing large quantities of selectively labeled RNA molecules
Study opens door to new opportunities in medicine and research
WHAT: Scientists have developed an efficient method of producing substantial quantities of RNA molecules with selectively labeled regions, paving the way for more advanced research and medical applications. RNA — DNA's lesser-known partner molecule — plays a significant role not only in genetic activities but in many other biological functions like enzymatic processes. It also is an important research, medical diagnostic, and therapeutic tool.
