Abstract: Introduction of double—stranded RNA(dsRNA)into cells can induce specific mRNA degradation,This process is called RNA interference(RNAi).During the past 10 years, tremendous progress has been made in revealing the underlying mechanism of RNAi and related silencing responses. RNAi has become a powerful research tool in regulating the expression of target genes for expected or desirable phenotypes. In this article,the mechanism of RNAi has been described and summarized,and the application of RANi in plant functional genomics has also been reviewed。
