What is a SMARTpool siRNA reagent?
The SMARTpool siRNA reagent is a pool of four siRNA duplexes all designed to target distinct sites within the specific gene of interest. The siRNA sequences are selected using Dharmacon's SMARTselection design algorithm and then analyzed for significant sequence identity with other non-targeted genes using a unique, modified BLAST analysis against a curated database for the appropriate species.
