The MISSION pLKO.1-puro Non-Target shRNA Control Plasmid DNA is a lentivirus plasmid vector. The vector contains an shRNA insert that does not target any known genes from any species, making it useful as a negative control in experiments using the MISSION shRNA library clones. This allows one to examine the effect of transfection of a short-hairpin on gene expression and interpret the knockdown effect seen with shRNA clones. Ampicillin and puromycin antibiotic resistance genes provide selection in bacterial or mammalian cells respectively. In addition, self-inactivating replication incompetent viral particles can be produced in packaging cells (HEK293T) by co-transfection with compatible packaging plasmids. The Non-Target shRNA Control Plasmid DNA is provided as 10 μg of plasmid DNA in Tris-EDTA (TE) buffer at a concentration of 500 ng/μl.
MISSION® pLKO.1-puro non-target shRNA control plasmid DNA has been used as a control during transduction:
in tumor cells for multicolour imaging
in human adult low calcium temperature keratinocytes
in mouse embryonic fibroblasts, to study the biological functions of IP6K1 (inositol hexakisphosphate kinase)
to study the function of Zac1 (zinc finger protein regulating apoptosis and cell cycle arrest) expression in astroglial differentiation

Primary and adaptive resistance against chemo- and radiotherapy and local recurrence after surgery limit the benefits from these standard treatments in glioma patients. Recently we found that glioma cells can extend ultra-long membrane protrusions, "tumor microtubes" (TMs), for brain invasion...

Brain tumour cells interconnect to a functional and resistant network
Lung fibrosis is an unabated wound healing response characterized by the loss and aberrant function of lung epithelial cells. Herein, we report that extracellular Clusterin promoted epithelial cell apoptosis whereas intracellular Clusterin maintained epithelium viability during lung repair. Unlike normal...
