General description

The MISSION® siRNA Transfection Reagent is for the transfection of siRNA to achieve ≥90% silencing efficiency for transient knockdown of eukaryotic gene expression.
Effective gene silencing and reduced off target effects are achieved using a low siRNA concentration (1nM). The siRNA Transfection Reagent is provided as a sterile solution, and is compatible with serum and antibiotics.

Other Notes

Gene silencing assay: An A549 cell line stably expressing firefly luciferase was transfected in 24-well plates with 8.4 ng of 21-mer Luciferase siRNA using 2 μL of the MISSION® siRNA Transfection Reagent. Experiments were performed in triplicate in presence of serum. Cell lysates were assessed for luciferase expression 48 hours post-transfection.
