The siGENOME Human Epigenetics siRNA Library targets enzyme classes characterized to play a role in epigenetic mechanisms (see Reference 1). These inheritable factors that regulate genetic expression are of growing importance to scientific understanding of disease progression and trait inheritance. Modification of histones, such as methylation or acetylation, plays a key role in epigenetics as the extent to which DNA is wrapped around these protein complexes will alter the availability of genes in those DNA segments to be activated. The Epigenetics library targets genes which encode histone and DNA modification factors like methyltransferases, acetyltransferases, kinases and deacetylases, in addition to genes with a role in chromatin remodeling and histone ubiquitination.
RTF siRNA libraries are provided as multiple single-use plate sets – just rehydrate and add cells. This unique pre-plated format reduces hands-on time for faster screening results.
siGENOME siRNAs are designed with the proprietary SMARTselection design algorithm for high-efficiency, guaranteed silencing. They also incorporate rational strand bias with application of ON-TARGET modifications to optimize antisense strand loading into RISC for effective target knockdown.
Six ready-to-use 96-well plate sets provided for two triplicate screens
Pre-plated, validated RNAi controls included
No aliquoting necessary, just resuspend and add cells
siRNA reagents provided in clear plates at 6.25 pmol per well (50 nM final screening concentration)
Black or white clear-bottom plates available to support assays involving fluorescent or luminescent detection

DharmaFECT Cell Culture Reagent (DCCR) is recommended for use with RTF libraries to dilute transfection reagents prior to use. DCCR may be purchased separately or accompanying your RTF Optimization Plates
DharmaFECT transfection reagents are highly recommended for use with RTF libraries and should be purchased separately. Refer to the DharmaFECT Cell Type Guide to find the appropriate formulation for your cell type.
