ALK6 (BMPR1B) siRNA Set I(B05-911)
FOR BULK ORDER REQUESTS PLEASE CONTACT US
Description :ALK6 (BMPR1B) is a pool of three individual synthetic siRNA duplexes designed to knock-down human ALK6 (BMPR1B) mRNA expression. Each siRNA is 19-25 bases in length.
Specificity :ALK6 (BMPR1B) siRNAs are designed to specifically knock-down human ALK6 (BMPR1B) 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 :ALK-6; ALK6; CDw293
Scientific Background :ALK6 (also known as BMPR1B) is a member of the transmembrane serine/threonine kinase that is the member of the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) receptor, which is closely related to the activin receptors, ACVR1 and ACVR2. ALK6 is mainly involved in the endochondral bone formation and embryogenesis. ALK6 expressed in normal and cancerous prostate tissues and used in the endocrine therapy that given to the prostate cancer patients (1). ALK6 receptor trafficking also play a significant role in FOP pathogenesis and used in human T-cell differentiation (2).
