Abstract

Recent studies suggest that antisense phosphorothioate oligonucleotides (APO) are useful tools not only to impair gene expression, but also to modify the splicing of pre-mRNA, as the classical view that they act by suppressing the translation of mature mRNA has been challenged by several examples showing their nuclear site of action. In this work we show that an APO directed against cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) mRNA localises in the nucleus and interacts with a specific nuclear protein.
