Gene Silencing is switching off of the expression of a gene, for example by the introduction of an antisense RNA that blocks translation of the messenger RNA. A mechanism by which cells shut down large sections of chromosomal DNA. Gene silencing is done by incorporating the DNA to be silenced into a form of DNA called heterochromatin that is already silent.
