Encyclopedia > Small hairpin RNA

A short hairpin RNA (shRNA) is a sequence of RNA that makes a tight hairpin turn that can be used in gene expression silence. Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is a nucleic acid polymer consisting of covalently bound nucleotides. ... A nearly 180-degree turn in a road, trail, or ramp is called a hairpin turn (also hairpin bend or, if in a trail, a switchback). ... This stylistic schematic diagram shows a gene in relation to the double helix structure of DNA and to a chromosome (right). ...
