Is it necessary to remove the 2'-ACE protection from the siRNA duplexes prior to transfection?

The 2'-ACE group needs to be removed from the RNA oligo prior to use in experiments. The 2'-ACE protecting group is removed during normal processing for all our catalog siRNA products as well as all custom siRNA syntheses except where option A1 is requested at the time of order.
