Selection of siRNA Sequences for Mammalian RNAi Protocol To target a specific mRNA for degradation, a portion of the mRNA target sequence must be known, and a segment of the target mRNA must be chosen that will be used for targeting by the cognate siRNA duplex. Protocol describes the selection of siRNA sequences for mammalian RNAi.
Transfection of Mammalian Cells with siRNA Duplexes Protocol Protocol describes a method for the delivery of siRNAs into mammalian cells in the absence of reporter plasmids. This is best achieved with transfection reagents developed for the delivery of antisense oligodeoxynucleotides. The quantities of reagents given below are calculated for the transfection of one well of a 24-well plate.
