General description

Lentiviral particles (representational, plate titer) are provided in 96-well plates that are barcoded for simple identification. Aliquots of 4 x 50μl are provided to prevent the need for excessive freeze/thaw, and maximize functional viral particles. Each gene family set is representationally titered (10% of clones). Fully titered sets are also available, for more information inquire at RNAi@sial.com. A CD containing RefSeq, gene description, gene symbol, clone ID, hairpin sequence, locus link, and plate map positions are provided with the gene family set.

Other Notes

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.
Number of Genes: 541, Number of Clones: 2864

G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) are an important class of ligand-activated proteins that regulate cellular metabolism. It is now appears that GPCR function is highly dependent upon the cellular environment in which it is expressed. Indeed, the cell phenotype influences

Research on the structure, regulation and signalling properties of the family of seven-transmembrane-helix, heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide-binding protein (G-protein)-coupled receptors (GPCRs) continues at a frantic pace.
