in vivo RNAi screen explores tendons

Tiwari P, Kumar A, Das RN, Malhotra V, VijayRaghavan K. A Tendon Cell Specific RNAi Screen Reveals Novel Candidates Essential for Muscle Tendon Interaction. PLoS One. 2015 Oct 21;10(10):e0140976. PMID: 26488612.

From the abstract: "... We performed a genetic screen using RNAi-mediated knockdown in tendon cells to find out molecular players involved in the formation and maintenance of myotendinous junction and found 21 candidates out of 2507 RNAi lines screened. Of these, 19 were novel molecules in context of myotendinous system. ..."
