GIPZ Lentiviral shRNA Libraries

Perform genome-scale shRNA screening experiments with GIPZ Lentiviral shRNA libraries.

GIPZ whole genome libraries for human or mouse, assembled using innovative bioinformatic tools to reflect the most up-to-date genetic and ontological information. Offered as glycerol stocks of shRNA clones arrayed in 96-well plates.

Highlights
  • Designed for increased specificity, less toxicity
  • TurboGFP marks cells expressing shRNA
  • Efficient low copy knockdown
  • Genome-wide human and mouse coverage
  • Perform efficient RNAi in primary and non-dividing cells
  • Guaranteed* knockdown

*One out of three GIPZ Lentiviral shRNA is guaranteed to produce gene knockdown by ≥ 70% at the mRNA level when used with a functioning positive control. Knockdown should be compared to non-silencing control, and experimental workflow must be controlled using the provided GIPZ GAPDH positive control. 

Bacterial glycerol stock

Bacterial culture transformed with a plasmid vector, grown in the presence of glycerol for freezer storage and supplied in single tubes (at least three constructs per target gene) and predefined or custom libraries.

Arrayed library format

Genome-scale, predefined or custom libraries of bacterial glycerol stocks arrayed in 96-well microtiter plates.

Gene families and pathways

Predefined libraries arranged by gene family and/or function and arrayed in 96-well microtiter plates.

High-titer lentiviral particles

Transduction-ready concentrated lentiviral particles supplies in tubes. Available as individual lentiviral particles and target gene sets (three constructs per target gene).

shRNA Starter Kit

All reagents and protocols necessary for starting a gene silencing experiment are provided in a single, convenient package.

Fluorescent markers

Visually track expressed shRNA with TurboGFP (green fluorescent protein; Evrogen, Moscow, Russia) or TurboRFP (red fluorescent protein; Evrogen, Moscow, Russia).
