Sigma Offers Another Format of the RNAi Consortium shRNA Libraries
News Oct 07, 2005
Sigma, a division of Sigma-Aldrich Corporation, through an exclusive agreement with The RNAi Consortium (TRC), has announced the expansion of the MISSION TRC shRNA library product lines to include lentiviral transduction particles in addition to the previously released purified plasmid DNA and frozen bacterial glycerol stock format.
According to Sigma, they are the first to market comprehensive lentiviral shRNA clone libraries in this format, allowing researchers to quickly and efficiently knockdown gene expression in primary, dividing, and non-dividing cells.
This format of the shRNA clones, which target human and mouse genes for RNAi- mediated gene silencing, designed for a faster, broader and reliable shRNA delivery.
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.

Single Gene Change in Gut Bacteria Alters Host MetabolismNews
Scientists have found that deleting a single gene in a particular strain of gut bacteria causes changes in metabolism and reduced weight gain in mice. The research provides an important step towards understanding how the microbiome – the bacteria that live in our body – affects metabolism.READ MORE
