The Luciferase Duplex is an siRNA control to effectively knock down the Photinus pyralis (firefly) luciferase gene, a popular reporter gene in many expression plasmid systems.
Because the fireflyluciferase reporter sequence is often altered to improve its performance, we recommend aligning the target siRNA sequence to your reporter to ensure a sequence match.

- Appropriate for use in any mammalian cell type
