AKT2/PKB beta siRNA Set I(A17-911)
FOR BULK ORDER REQUESTS PLEASE CONTACT US
Description :AKT2/PKB beta is a pool of three individual synthetic siRNA duplexes designed to knock-down human AKT2/PKB beta mRNA expression. Each siRNA is 19-25 bases in length.
Specificity :AKT2/PKB beta siRNAs are designed to specifically knock-down human AKT2/PKB beta 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 :PRKBB; PKBBETA; RAC-BETA
Scientific Background :AKT2 or Protein Kinase B beta (PKB beta) is a serine/threonine kinase that is a member of the AKT family. AKT2 like the other AKT members is activated in cells in response to diverse stimuli such as hormones, growth factors and extracellular matrix components and is involved in glucose metabolism, transcription, survival, cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and cell motility. The PI3K generates phosphatidylinositol-3,4,5-trisphosphate (PIP3), a lipid second messenger essential for the translocation of AKT2 to the plasma membrane where it is phosphorylated and activated by phosphoinositide-dependent kinase-1 (PDK-1).
