Q&A: Memorial Sloan-Kettering's Christina Leslie on the Impact of Small RNA Transfection on miRNA Silencing

According to a paper published by Leslie and colleagues, transfecting small RNAs such as siRNAs into a cell disrupts endogenous miRNA gene silencing, most likely as the result of a saturation effect on RISC and related intracellular machinery.
