How many is the limit?

I am hoping get an estimate on how many RNAi or miRNA or other xRNA now being and will be idenitified events can happen in a given cell or organism, depending on species, at ONE time.
It has been very fascinating that we are finding out more and more on how cellular bi-product type material controls things on so many levels. Anyway please let me know what you think.

i do not understand what you really mean.
Do you mean that in few years, how many xRNA will be known? Nobody can really answer to that question. But obviously the RNA silencing family is very interesting and is in the move today. When you make a quick search in pubmed, you get tons of references speaking about si / mi RNA.
Such mechanisms are more and more understood and by the way shows increasing therapeutic possibilities. But, according to me, these RNA are more valuable for genetics experiment and genome analysis.
I hope i have answered to your question for a few.
