We found a novel gene named as HA117 in our previous research. At this study, we screened for an optimal siRNA targeting the novel gene HA117 using the pSOS-HUS method, verified the results of pSOS-HUS siRNA screening for optimal affinity for the target gene, and constructed and evaluated a recombinant adenovirus carrying the DNA template for transcription of the optimal HA117 siRNA. The pSOS-HUS vector method was successfully utilized as a rapid and effective screen for an optimal siRNA for a target gene. Among five pairs of DNA templates, siRNA transcribed from HAi5 gave the strongest interference with the novel gene HA117; a HAi5-carrying recombinant adenovirus (Ad-HAi5) was successfully constructed and evaluated, laying a foundation for the further study of HA117 gene function with RNAi technology.
