Gene Information

General description

MISSION® esiRNA are endoribonuclease prepared siRNA. They are a heterogeneous mixture of siRNA that all target the same mRNA sequence. These multiple silencing triggers lead to highly-specific and effective gene silencing.

Biochem/physiol Actions

ATG5 (autophagy protein 5) is involved in the formation of autophagosomes. It is part of the E3-like ATG12-ATG5-ATG16 complex, which is involved with autophagic vesicle formation and expansion. ATG5 is also needed for antigen presentation and thereby enhances viral clearance. Mutation in this gene decreases autophagy, thereby causing ataxia with developmental delay. The ATG5 gene is upregulated in systemic lupus erythematosus. It is also associated with Behçet′s disease. Polymorphisms in this gene are linked with neutrophilic airway inflammation, particularly in adult asthma.
