AATK siRNA Set I(A02-911)
FOR BULK ORDER REQUESTS PLEASE CONTACT US
Description :AATK is a pool of three individual synthetic siRNA duplexes designed to knock-down human AATK mRNA expression. Each siRNA is 19-25 bases in length.
Specificity :AATK siRNAs are designed to specifically knock-down human AATK 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 :AATYK; LMTK1; KIAA0641
Scientific Background :AATK or apoptosis-associated tyrosine kinase contains a tyrosine kinase domain at the N-terminus and a proline-rich domain at the C-terminus. AATK is induced during apoptosis, and expression of this protein is a necessary pre-requisite for the induction of growth arrest and/or apoptosis of myeloid precursor cells (1). AATK is highly detected in brain, lung, kidney, and pancreas (2). AATK is also shown to produce neuronal differentiation in a neuroblastoma cell line.
