Each MISSION shRNA clone is constructed within the lentivirus plasmid vector, pLKO.1-Puro, followed by transformation into Escherichia coli. The pLKO.1-Puro vector contains bacterial (ampicillin) and mammalian (puromycin) antibiotic resistance genes for selection of inserts in either bacterial or mammalian cell lines. Each clone set consists of an average of 3-5 constructs that have been designed against each target gene using a proprietary algorithm. Therefore, a range of knockdown efficiency, with at least one construct from each gene set being >70%, can be expected when using these clones. This allows one to examine the effect of loss of gene function over a large series of gene knockdown efficiencies. Each shRNA construct has been cloned and sequence verified to ensure a match to the target gene.
The exact gene and clone count at time of purchase may vary slightly as the TRC library is continually updated.
