The MISSION® pLKO.1-puro Non-Target shRNA Control Transduction Particles contain 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 transduction 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 Transduction Particles are provided as 200 μL at 1 x 106 TU/mL via p24 assay.
When conducting experiments using MISSION® shRNA clones, the proper controls should be a key element of your experimental design to allow for accurate interpretation of knockdown results. The MISSION Control Transduction Particles are a critical positive control to monitor transduction efficiency. To see more application data, protocols, vector maps visit sigma.com/shrna.
MISSION® pLKO.1-puro Non-Target shRNA Control Transduction Particles have been used to generate 3T3-L1 (pre-adipocytes) control cell lines.

The role of Sirtuin 6 (SIRT6) as a tumor suppressor or oncogene in liver cancer remains controversial. Thus, we identified the specific role of SIRT6 in the progression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). SIRT6 expression was significantly higher in HCC cell...
Currently, there is no efficient therapy for patients with peripheral T cell lymphoma (PTCL). The Proviral Integration site of Moloney murine leukemia virus (PIM) kinases are important mediators of cell survival. We aimed to determine the therapeutic value of PIM...
p53 is one of the most important tumor suppressor genes, and the exploration of p53-target genes is important for elucidation of its functional mechanisms. In this study, we identified Armadillo Repeat gene deleted in Velo-Cardio-Facial syndrome (ARVCF) as a direct...
