  1. 1. Guaranteed Knock Down for Every Human, Mouse, and Rat Gene Our experimentally verified shRNA design algorithm ensures the maximum gene-specificity and RNAi efficacy. We guarantee that you will see 70% or greater knock down for your targeted gene with at least two of the four shRNA plasmids.* The availability of two effective sequences allows you to properly control for nonspecific and off-target effects. Enrich or Select: Use Neomycin or Puromycin Resistance for stable selection and study the long term effects of gene suppression. Use GFP Marker for FACS enrichment and the study of short term effects of gene suppression. SureSilencing shRNA Plasmid Kit Contents: 4 shRNAs targeting gene-of-interest 1 negative control shRNA Plasmid Options: For FACS Sorting: GFP Marker (Cat. Nos. KX#####G) For Stable Selection: Neomycin (Cat. Nos. KX#####N) Puromyin (Cat. Nos. KX#####P) Prepare stock of transfection-grade plasmids by amplification in bacteria. Transfect shRNA Plasmids into Cell Line of Interest. Transfect all 4 shRNAs and Negative Control into your cell line in a six-well culture plate. Guaranteed!*: Knock down expression of the target gene by at least 70 percent. Control for non-specific and off target effects. Convenient and Cost-Effective: Use standard plasmid-based and lipid-mediated transfection methods.

SureSilencing shRNA Plasmids with GFP Marker for each of six genes were transfected into HEK-293 cells. The transfection efficiency was estimated by fluorescence microscopy. The relative expression level of each target gene, normalized to transfection efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR and plotted with the standard deviation of the biological and technical replicates.

Plasmid Backbone U1 promoter transcribes moderate shRNA amount: minimal off-target effect & toxicity Bacterial origin of replication and ampicillin-resistance marker: amplify life-time supply Mammalian Expression Markers: Neomycin or Puromycin Resistance: select stably transfected cells , study long term effects GFP Marker: enrich or track transiently transfected cells, study short term effects Unlike chemically synthesized siRNA, plasmid-based shRNA provides a renewable source of RNA interference. You can Applications Use RNAi in virtually any cell line: Accommodates both low and high transfection efficiencies. amplify enough plasmid to complete any number of projects in your lab. Purchase of SureSilencing™ shRNA plasmids includes complete shRNA sequence information. Stable transfections with resistance markers: Study slow effects using any gene function assay. Transient transfections GFP-enriched by FACS: Study quick effects using any gene function assay. * The SureSilencing™ shRNA Guarantee: At least two of the provided pre-designed SureSilencing™ shRNA Plasmids are guaranteed to knock down expression of the targeted gene at the RNA level by at least 70 percent as measured by real-time qRT-PCR in transfected cells upon FACS-based enrichment for GFP expression or selection for neomycin or puromycin resistance as described in the User Manual. Transient transfections GFP-tracked by fluorescence microscopy: Study quick effects using cell-based imaging and gene function assays.
