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.
Reconstitution Protocol :Each siRNA duplex is supplied as 2.5nmol per tube (for example 6 x 2.5nmol = 3 x 5nmol per duplex). Briefly centrifuge one tube per duplex (maximum RCF 4,000g) to collect lyophilized siRNA at the bottom of the tube. Resuspend each 2.5nmol tube in 50 ul of DEPC-treated water (included in kit), which results in a 1x stock solution (50 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).
