Is there a guarantee on the SMARTvector products?
When you purchase a minimum of three SMARTvector lentiviral shRNAs to the same protein-coding gene target using the optimal SMARTchoice promoter for your cell type, at least one of the shRNA constructs will reduce target mRNA levels by 70% or more when used with the vector matched non-targeting control and GAPD or PPIB positive control. Optimal promoters should be determined with the SMARTchoice promoter selection plate. mRNA levels should be measured with RT-qPCR or similar quantitative mRNA analysis no earlier than 72 hours post-transduction. The guarantee only applies to catalog numbers V3S*xxxx and does not apply to any SMARTvector shRNAs targeting lncRNA transcripts.
