Description

Stealth™ RNAi siRNA Negative Control, Med GC, is one of three negative controls for use with Stealth™ siRNA experiments. These controls are a great way to measure the effect of your experimental Stealth™ RNAi siRNA duplex versus background. The Stealth™ RNAi siRNA Negative Control Kit contains all three controls (Lo, Med, and Hi GC content—excluding sequences #2 and #3), and each is also available separately. These controls are:

• Designed with 3 levels of GC content (Lo, Med, Hi) with 3 sequences available per level, so researchers can match GC content to their experimental Stealth™ RNAi siRNA
• Not homologous to anything in the vertebrate transcriptome
• Tested to not induce a stress response

About Stealth™ RNAi siRNA Negative Controls
Stealth™ RNAi Negative Control Duplexes are ideal for use in RNA interference (RNAi) experiments as a control for sequence independent effects following Stealth™ RNAi delivery in any vertebrate cell line. Each Stealth™ RNAi Negative Control Duplex is designed to minimize sequence homology to any known vertebrate transcript. The Stealth™ RNAi Negative Control Duplexes differ from one another in their GC content, and are supplied in a ready-to-use format. 1X RNA Annealing/Dilution Buffer is included for dilution of the Stealth™ RNAi stock solution, if desired.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
