According to scientists in Switzerland, siRNAs "induce gene silencing in various eukaryotic cells, although usually in an incomplete manner."
"Using chemically synthesized siRNAs targeting the HIV-1 co-receptor CXCR4 or the apoptosis-inducing Fas-ligand (FasL), co-transfection of cells with two or more siRNA duplexes targeting different sites on the same mRNA resulted in an enhanced gene silencing compared with each single siRNA," reported J.M.
