... by numerous actin-binding proteins, but regulation of nuclear actin has remained unclear. Here, we performed a genome-wide RNA interference (RNAi) screen in Drosophila cells to identify proteins that influence either nuclear polymerization or import of actin. We validate 19 factors as specific hits, and show...

.... Recently, GW bodies have been linked to RNA interference and demonstrated to be important for short-interfering-RNA- and microRNA-mediated mRNA decay and translational repression. Evidence indicates that both passenger and guide strands of short-interfering RNA duplexes can localize to GW bodies, thereby...

... substitution in Smu1 that underlies the temperature-sensitive phenotypes of tsTM18 cells. In the present study, we confirmed that Smu1 is associated with the temperature-sensitive defect of tsTM18 by RNA interference. We also found an early temperature effect in DNA synthesis. Because genetic studies...

... related to those known in vertebrates, we tested this gene for its implication in protease inhibition by using double-stranded RNA interference (dsRNAi). dsRNAi has proved to be a powerful tool, both to look at gene function and to implement systematic functional screens in contexts not amenable...

..., whereas SV2B is only present on SLM. Neither overexpression nor isoform-specific silencing of SV2A or SV2C by RNA interference modifies depolarization-triggered cytosolic [Ca 2+ ] rises or secretory granule [Ca 2+ ], measured with a VAMP-2 aequorin chimera. This strongly argues against any Ca 2+ transport...

... of the cohesin subunit Scc1 by RNA interference leads to the assembly of chromosomes with severe cohesion defects. A similar yet milder set of defects is observed in cells with reduced levels of Pds5A or Pds5B. In Xenopus egg extracts, mitotic chromosomes assembled in the absence of Pds5A and Pds5B display...

We have used RNA interference to demonstrate that ARL1 is essential for viability in T. brucei bloodstream parasites. Prior to cell death, depletion of ARL1 protein...

We show here that Rab7 was needed for the formation of preferably perinuclear, large aggregates, where the autophagosome marker LC3 colocalised with Rab7 and late endosomal and lysosomal markers.
