Question

RNAi involves
  1. Synthesis of mRNA from DNA.
  2. Interference of RNA in synthesis of DNA.
  3. Synthesis of cDNA from RNA using reverse transcriptase.
  4. Silencing of specific mRNA using complementary RNA.


Solution

The correct option is D Silencing of specific mRNA using complementary RNA.
RNAi or RNA interference is a method of cellular defense in eukaryotes. This method involves silencing of mRNA using complementary double stranded RNA. Both of these RNA strands bind to each other and prevents translation of target gene or mRNA [silencing].
