Designing siRNA from Sequence provided by Qiagen
Posted 27 April 2010 - 09:38 PM
I have a question: I got a datasheet from qiagen for a gapdh siRNA with the following target sequence: CCGAGCCACATCGCTCAGACA
I wondering how to use this sequence to design my siRNA next time the vial is empty from qiagen. Using Sigma I can get the siRNA for half the prize, but I need to enter the sequence. So how to do this??? Just use this mRNA target sequence of GAPDH and make it reverse complement using U instead of T ??????
Do I need to modify the ends???
Thanks for you help in advance.
Itīs really necessary to order this at Sigma for the cheaper prize, since our lab run out of money, and we need to perform this experiments as soon as possible.

It should work.

Why can I leave out the first 2 bases?
Are they not necessary ??
So the Target Sequence provided by the company is mainly the sense strand, without the first 2 ologios, but instead at the end 2dTīs.
Can you explain me this? Iīm not so advanced to get this point. Just a beginner in siRNA. Sorry
Thanks in advance

I can confirm, the sequence is matching 100% to the mRNA from GAPDH (human)
So the only thing I have to do is to copy/paste the sequence as sense to the ordering sheet, ok also the antisense and thatīs it? no hidden clue?
Sounds quite simple.
I will give it a try.
why is one scientist talking about cutting the first 2 and one scientist wants to cut the last two bases of the sequence?
Is it just important to keep the 19 bases? Are the dTīs very important and what is their function?
