Delivering siRNA in vivo

New Publications

Our i-Fect transfection kit was one of the first products. This has resulted in it being widely used and frequently published.

We kick off 2018 with some new publications. Here we feature a study where researchers use our kit to deliver G-protein-coupled receptor C (MrgprC) siRNA in vivo. This receptor is part of the TRPV1 pathway.

The others conclude that MrgprC expression is impacted by electroacupuncture and downregulates  TRPV1.  This is the mechanism that results in pain relief.
