Regulate Gene Expression with Altogen Labs RNAi Technology.

Austin, TX, October 03, 2015 --( Ribonucleic Acid or RNA is a molecule critical to biology because it is behind the coding, regulation and expression of genes. With the RNA Interference or RNAi technology service offered by Altogen Labs it is possible to effectively regulate gene expression. Moreover, Altogen Labs has developed methods to prevent siRNA degradation in serum (including both chemical modification and encapsulation of siRNA), increase delivery efficiency to the target organ, and produce strong tissue-targeted functional effects induced by siRNA in vivo.

The two types of small RNA molecules involved with RNA Interference are microRNA (miRNA) and small interfering RNA (siRNA).The siRNA and miRNA can be administered in vivo after which it will be expressed as short hairpin RNA (shRNA) and ultimately become active siRNA. The applications of this technology range from the identification and validation of drug delivery systems to the discovery of cell-signaling pathways involved with disease control. Ultimately, RNAi technology is a giant in the world of drug discovery and the development of therapeutic treatments and Altogen Labs offers quality services that allow for the successful delivery of stable, functional siRNA or microRNA to a target tissue.

Altogen Labs provides laboratory contract research services (CRO) to pharma/biotech industry, as well as research centers worldwide. Altogen Labs is unique in that it offers a comprehensive host of RNAi services (among many other preclinical biology lab services) including RNAi gene targeting, siRNA synthesis, functional in vitro validation via qPCR and Western Blot, siRNA encapsulation, in vivo siRNA protection and tissue-targeted delivery. Altogen Labs also offers RNAi library-based high-throughput screening in order to quickly determine the relevant gene for a specific phenotype.
