A New Powerful Tool for Mammalian Gene Silencing
Chimera RNA interference (chimera RNAi) is a process by which small interfering RNA/DNA chimera triggers the destruction of mRNA. The discovery work, design, and application of chimera RNAi have been pioneered by Professor Kaoru Saigo and Dr. Kumiko Ui-Tei at the University of Tokyo.

Chimera RNAi has many advantages over the conventional siRNAs. First, it has been demonstrated to have reliable knock-down for over 10,000 human genes. Because the human genome is composed of an intricate, genetic network, chimera RNAi's unique design has successfully obviated the off-target effects including microRNA-based influence. Another advantage of the chimera RNAi technology is its effectiveness at low concentrations (0.5nM to 5nM); only mRNA is destroyed so genomic genes are not affected. Finally, having both the sense and anti-sense strands consisting of RNA/DNA chimera, it offers much greater compound stability for streamlining in vitro and in vivo assays and applications while minimizing interferon induction and other adverse reactions.
