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.
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 :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.
