RNA interference: A technique for knocking down gene function RNA interference exploits native cellular machinery to causes degradation or silencing of specific transcripts Some examples of techniques for studying signal transduction --What proteins participate in a signal transduction pathway? --Do two proteins physically interact in the presence/absence of signal? Co-immunoprecipitation --Does a signal change the localization of components in the signal transduction pathway. --Does a signal lead to covalent modification of a protein? --Does the signal alter transcription and, if so, what transcripts? Testing for interactions by immunoprecipitation Co-localization and Co-IP show that proteins interact The PAF1 complex differentially regulates cardiomyocyte specification.
