Annexin 5 siRNA Set I(A61-911)

  • $655.00


Description :Annexin 5 is a pool of three individual synthetic siRNA duplexes designed to knock-down human Annexin 5 mRNA expression. Each siRNA is 19-25 bases in length.

Specificity :Annexin 5 siRNAs are designed to specifically knock-down human Annexin 5 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 :ANXA5, PP4, ANX5, ENX2

Scientific Background :Annexin 5 is a member of the annexin family of calcium-dependent phospholipid binding proteins. Annexin 5 is a phospholipase A2 and protein kinase C inhibitory protein with calcium channel activity and a potential role in cellular signal transduction, inflammation, growth and differentiation. In vitro studies have shown that Annexin 5 is a cellular protein which plays a role in the inhibition of blood coagulation by competing for phosphatidylserine binding sites with prothrombin (1). Through affinity assays Annexin 5 has been localized on cells that expressed phosphatidylserine on the cell surface, a feature found in apoptosis as well as other forms of cell death (2).
