Rather, they "fuse with the cell's endosomal membrane and deposit the RNAi trigger molecule into the cytoplasm where the cell's natural RNA silencing machinery, the RNA Induced Silencing Complex, or RISC, is located," Murray says.
Argonaute is one of the key proteins in RNAi and is the catalytic cleaving component of the RNA induced silencing complex [1].
