発明の名称 (英語) Construction of protein-responsive shRNA/RNAi control system using RNP motif
発明の概要(英語) An object of the present invention is to provide an RNAi control system using an RNA-protein interaction motif.
The present invention provides an shRNA comprising: a guide strand having a sequence complementary to a target sequence; a passenger strand which forms a duplex with the guide strand; and a linker strand which links the guide strand and the passenger strand, wherein the linker strand comprises an RNP-derived protein-binding motif sequence.
The present invention also provides an RNAi control system comprising: the shRNA; and an RNP-derived protein which specifically binds to a protein-binding motif sequence in the shRNA.
特許請求の範囲(英語) [claim1]
1. An RNAi control system responsive to a protein expressed in a cell, the system comprising: a vector for expression of an shRNA comprising: a guide strand having a sequence complementary to an mRNA of a target sequence; a passenger strand which forms a duplex with the guide strand; and a linker strand which links the guide strand and the passenger strand, the linker strand comprising a Box CD sequence,
wherein the binding of an L7Ae protein or L7Ae protein-containing fusion protein expressed in the cell to the shRNA inhibits the cleavage of the shRNA by Dicer.
[claim2]
2. An RNAi control method responsive to a protein expressed in a cell, the method comprising the step of: introducing into the cell a vector for expression of an shRNA comprising a guide strand having a sequence complementary to an mRNA of a target sequence; a passenger strand which forms a duplex with the guide strand; and a linker strand which links the guide strand and the passenger strand, the linker strand comprising a Box CD sequence,
wherein the binding of an L7Ae protein or L7Ae protein-containing fusion protein expressed in the cell to the shRNA inhibits the cleavage of the shRNA by Dicer.
[claim3]
3. The RNAi control system according to claim 1, wherein the target sequence of the shRNA is Bc1-xL mRNA, and the RNAi control system controls the expression of an apoptosis regulatory protein.
[claim4]
4. An shRNA comprising: a guide strand having a sequence complementary to an mRNA of a target sequence; a passenger strand which forms a duplex with the guide strand; and a linker strand which links the guide strand and the passenger strand, the linker strand comprising a Box CD sequence, wherein in response to an L7Ae protein or L7Ae protein-containing fusion protein expressed in the cell, the cleavage of the shRNA by Dicer is inhibited to control the expression of a protein encoded by the mRNA of the target sequence.
[claim5]
5. The RNAi control system according to claim 1, further comprising a vector for intracellular expression of the L7Ae protein or L7Ae protein-containing fusion protein.
[claim6]
6. The RNAi control system according to claim 1, wherein the target sequence of the shRNA is GFP mRNA.
[claim7]
7. The RNAi control method according to claim 2, wherein the target sequence of the shRNA is Bc1-xL mRNA, and the RNAi control method controls the expression of an apoptosis regulatory protein.
[claim8]
8. The RNAi control method according to claim 2, further comprising the step of introducing a vector for intracellular expression of the L7Ae protein or L7Ae protein-containing fusion protein into the cell.
[claim9]
9. A method for quantifying the expression of an intracellular marker protein without destroying a cell, comprising the steps of: introducing to the cell the shRNA of claim 4 wherein the target sequence is a GFP mRNA; and
measuring the fluorescence intensity of the GFP.
