dear netters,

something has been puzzling me for some time. 
a lot of people are using anti-sense RNA to inactivate transcripts. Does 
this mean that the endogenous sense transcript is indeed destroyed 
in the target cells ? does it completely disappear ? what is 
the proposed mechanism for breakdown of a double stranded
RNA molecule (are there enzymes that recognize these moieties) ?
 
cheers ! clemens
