Abstract

Small interfering RNA (siRNA), sometimes known as short interfering RNA or silencing
RNA, is a class of double-stranded non-coding RNA molecules, which is 20-25 base pairs in
length. siRNAs can regulate the expression of genes, by a phenomenon known as RNA interference (RNAi). Based on the phenomenon, the siRNA based therapeutics have been developed
and implemented for anticancer, antiviral, and genetic diseases.
