Unique ID
D000087503
RDF Unique Identifier
http://id.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/D000087503
Scope Note
Vaccines formulated with recombinant mRNAs which are taken up by the host cells that translate the mRNA and present the translated proteins to the immune system as antigens in a manner similar to that which would occur during natural infection. This induces humoral and cellular immune responses against the encoded antigen.
