Ricky Johnstone, Group Leader of Gene Regulation at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Center said, "As beta users of the Open Biosystems' Decode RNAi viral pools, we are very happy with its convenient format, knockdown performance in multiplexed RNAi screens, as well as, its ability to transduce many different cell lines.
These results have revealed the nature of cellular receptors that recognize neuromediators selectively and the pathways that transduce signals from neuromediator-occupied receptors to the target cells.
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are membrane proteins that transduce a vast array of extracellular signals into intracellular reactions ranging from cell-cell communication processes to physiological responses.

Previously, researchers have been unable to transduce non-dividing cell types, neurons, macrophages, and other primary tissue types crucial for studying genes as targets against novel therapeutics.
The authors focus on the fundamental mechanisms by which a cell senses and transduces mechanical force, addressing the factors that activate the range of signaling pathways, ultimately leading to the observed biological response.
