antisense RNA


Also found in: Medical, Wikipedia.

antisense RNA

(ˈæntɪsɛns)
n
(Genetics) molecules transcribed, not from DNA in the usual way, but from DNA strands complementary to those that produce normal messenger RNA. Antisense RNA occurs in nature and is inhibitory on gene action. It can be produced synthetically and offers such therapeutic possibilities as turning off viral genes
Translations
