Antisense RNA has been found to be a natural component of many regulatory systems in prokaryotes. Antisense genes have been implicated in the regulation of processes such as plasmid replication, transcription and translation. Artificially manipulated antisense genes have been used to regulate endogenous genes (micRNA mutagenesis) as well as to inhibit virus production (micRNA immune system).
