Abstract:

During the last decade, our familiarity of RNA-mediated functions has been greatly amplified with the invention of tiny non-coding RNAs that play a central role during a method referred to as RNA silencing. RNAi has revolutionized the chances for making custom “knock-downs” of cistron activity. RNAi operates in each plants and animals, and uses double stranded RNA (dsRNA) as a trigger that targets homologous mRNAs for degradation or inhibiting its transcription or translation, where by vulnerable genes are often suppressed. This RNA-mediated cistron management technology has provided new technologies for developing eco-friendly molecular tools for crop enhancement by suppressing the particular genes those are responsible for numerous stresses and as well as disease resistance. This review, updates the current state on the use of RNAi, molecular principles underlying the biology of this phenomenon, development of RNAi technologies in relation to plants and discusses strategies and applications of this technology in plant disease management.
