MDACC shRNA and ORFeome Core

Overview of Services

The discovery of short hairpin RNAs (shRNAs) suppressing gene expression in mammalian cells enables large-scale loss-of-function screens by using genome-wide shRNA libraries. Genome scale over-expression libraries allow large-scale gain-of-function screens. The ShRNA and ORFeome core makes available to the MDACC research community the human and mouse shRNA libraries, human ORFeome collaboration and LentiORF libraries (http://dharmacon.gelifesciences.com/openbiosystems/). The core facility can provide individual shRNA plasmids and cDNA clones for MDACC laboratories, or carry out a screening experiment using the libraries. Purchase of clones or libraries through the shRNA and ORFeome core reduces costs and decreases turnaround time for researchers.

Available Libraries:

Human and mouse ShRNA libraries: GIPZ Lentiviral shRNAmir libraries targets the entire human and mouse genome with multiple shRNAmir per target gene.For details, please visit: http://dharmacon.gelifesciences.com/rnai-and-custom-rna-synthesis/shrna/gipz-lentiviral-shrna/

Human ORFeome Collaboration: each clone contains a sequence-verified open reading frame (ORF) subcloned into Gateway™ recombinational entry vector.For details, please visit: http://dharmacon.gelifesciences.com/gene-expression-cdnas-orfs/mammalian-orfs/orfeome-collaboration-collection/

Human Precision LentiORFs: an expression-ready library, lentiviral ORFs. For details, please visit: http://dharmacon.gelifesciences.com/gene-expression-cdnas-orfs/mammalian-orfs/precision-lentiorfs/

Services**

  • Individual Clone distribution
  • Customized shRNA or ORF libraries
  • DNA purification: Facilitated by the Tecan automated workstation, the core will purify DNA in a high throughput manner.
  • Lentiviral production and infection
