14-3-3 zeta siRNA Set I(Y92-911)
FOR BULK ORDER REQUESTS PLEASE CONTACT US
Description :14-3-3 zeta is a pool of three individual synthetic siRNA duplexes designed to knock-down human 14-3-3 zeta mRNA expression. Each siRNA is 19-25 bases in length.
Specificity :14-3-3 zeta siRNAs are designed to specifically knock-down human 14-3-3 zeta expression.
Formulation :The siRNAs are supplied as a lyophilized powder and shipped at room temperature.
Reconstitution Protocol :Briefly centrifuge the tubes (maximum RCF 4,000g) to collect lyophilized siRNA at the bottom of the tube. Resuspend the siRNA in 50 ul of DEPC-treated water (supplied by researcher), which results in a 1x stock solution (10 uM). Gently pipet the solution 3-5 times to mix and avoid the introduction of bubbles. Optional: aliquot 1x stock solutions for storage.
Storage and Stability :The lyophilized powder is stable for at least 4 weeks at room temperature. It is recommended that the lyophilized and resuspended siRNAs are stored at or below -20oC. After resuspension, siRNA stock solutions ≥2 uM can undergo up to 50 freeze-thaw cycles without significant degradation. For long-term storage, it is recommended that the siRNA is stored at -70oC. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated Handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
Format :Lyophilized powder
Gene Aliases :14-3-3 zeta, YWHAZ, KCIP-1, MGC111427, MGC126532, MGC138156
Scientific Background :14-3-3 zeta (also known as tyrosine 3-monooxygenase/tryptophan 5-monooxygenase activation protein, zeta polypeptide) is a member of the 14-3-3 family of proteins which mediate signal transduction by binding to phosphoserine-containing proteins. 14-3-3 zeta protein plays a key role in cancer biology by being an important regulator of major cellular processes such as proliferation, differentiation, senescence and apoptosis (1). 14-3-3 zeta protein has been shown to interact with the IRS1 protein, suggesting a role for this protein in regulating insulin sensitivity by interrupting the association between the insulin receptor and IRS1 (2).
