Dharmacon siRNA products are the result of scientific innovation in siRNA design and novel modification strategies to optimize potency, specificity and delivery.
Our scientists were the first to establish siRNA design rules for high potency silencing and continue to drive innovation in this area. The
SMARTselection algorithm selects highly functional and specific siRNAs for all of our predesigned products, enabling us to offer a functionality guarantee for all three of our major product lines:
siGENOME, and Accell reagents.
Pooling of siRNAs better mimics the natural RNAi pathway, and when combined with
SMARTselection design, provides advantages for both potency and specificity.
The primary source of siRNA-mediated off targets is the seed region (nucleotides 2-7) which uses the microRNA pathway to induce non-specific gene silencing via interactions within the 3' UTR. Seed region filters and seed frequency analysis are incorporated in the SMARTselection siRNA design strategy to reduce microRNA-like off-target activity. Dharmacon siRNA products provide the most comprehensive bioinformatic strategies to mitigate off-targeting.
Enjoy optimal specificity from the only siRNA with a patented modification pattern to reduce off-targets caused by either the sense or the antisense strand.
Specially modified for delivery into difficult-to-transfect cells without a transfection reagent, Accell enables non-viral RNAi in neuronal, immune, and stem cells.
Highly potent siRNA for all human, mouse, and rat genes. siGENOME has provided the longest standing siRNA silencing guarantee on the market.
siRNAs for efficient knockdown of long, noncoding RNA (lncRNA) genes with modifications to ensure specificity.
