  • Moreover, RNAi will permit the ablation of essential gene products, at any time point in infection, or on a desired parasitic stage following synchronization.

  • The control eyes were submitted to a phototherapeutic keratectomy of 5 mm diameter ablation zone (confined by the same iris diaphragm), depth of 60 μm, on deepithelised cornea without the use of any masking agent.

  • Over the last decade, RNA interference (RNAi), mediated by short interfering double-stranded RNA molecules (siRNA or dsRNA), has been gradually recognized as a major mechanism of post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) in species as diverse as plants, Drosophila, and C. elegans [ 1 ] . Recently, 21-nucleotide long dsRNA molecules corresponding to specific mRNA sequences, when introduced into mammalian cells in culture, have been shown to be highly effective in degrading the cognate mRNAs and thus abrogating the expression of the corresponding proteins [ 2 ] . Although the exact mechanism of PTGS is currently unknown and is an area of intense research, the successful use of this phenomenon in cultured mammalian cells has raised the exciting prospect that it can be used as a simple strategy for phenotypic ablation of mammalian gene function ex vivo without the time-consuming and expensive construction of transgenic animals.

  • Cell ablation experiments are used to identify lateral inhibition: when cells that would normally adopt a primary fate are removed, cells that would otherwise acquire a secondary fate replace them.

  • 1) the mixture for the preparation of the gel is conditioned so that its solid form to have the same ablation to that of the cornea [ 13 ] . The full removal of the lenticule with photoablation in PTK mode would be expected to reproduce the lenticule's upper surface onto the surface of the cornea.
