Mission shRNA Gene Family Sets

Choose from 25 pre-designed shRNA Gene Panels


  • All TRC shRNA clones have been methodically mapped to each current gene set by our Bioinformatics team.
  • Gene family sets for human (22) and mice (3) include popular kinases, phosphatases, GPCRs, tyrosine kinases, and epigenetic regulators.
  • Any panel can be arrayed in either 96- or 384- well plate formats
  • All gene family sets can be used at the benchtop for focused target discovery and pathway analysis.

Create your own panel.

        Targeted Integration shRNA

        MISSION Taregeted Integration shRNA kit, Powerd by CompoZr® Zinc Finger Technology.


        • Validated pair of zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs) engineered to target AAVS1 locus enables efficient targeted integration of shRNA encoding sequence
        • Consistent site for transgene delivery as AAVS1 site is likely present in every human cell line
        • No random integration leads to better control of target gene expression
        • Effective gene knockdown comparable to lentiviral shRNA constructs
