Chimera RNA interference (chimera RNAi) is process by which small interfering RNA/DNA chimera triggers the destruction of mRNA for the original gene. The discovery work, design, and application of chimera RNAi has been pioneered by Professor Kaoru Saigo and Dr. Kumiko Ui-Tei at the University of Tokyo. Chimera RNAi has many advantages over the conventional siRNAs. First, it has been demonstrated to have reliable knock-down for over 10,000 human genes. Because the human genome is composed of an intricate, genetic network, chimera RNAi's unique design has successfully obviated the off-target effects including microRNA-based influence. Another advantage of the chimera RNAi technology is its effectiveness at low concentrations (0.5nM to 5nM); only mRNA is destroyed so genomic genes are not affected. Finally, having both the sense and anti-sense strands consisting RNA/DNA chimera, it offers much greater compound stability for streamlining in vitro and in vivo assays and applications while minimizing interferon induction and other adverse reactions.

FAQs for CD98 RNAi (H00006520-R01). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQ).

  1. I'm going to use this SiRNA and I was wondering which is the optimal concentration that I need to transfect a cell line (human epithelial cell line A549). Moreover I was wondering how many hours after transfection I have to wait until the receptor is down-regulated and in which % I expected ?
    • This RNAi is produced by a Taiwanese company called Abnova and we distribute it for them. We do no in-house testing or development of their products. According to their protocol, the optimal concentration of RNAi is 2uM and you should wait 72-96 hours.

CD98 - cell surface glycoprotein that promotes cell adhesion, growth, and survival
CD98 is a heterodimeric glycoprotein that contains an 80 kDa heavy chain and a 40 kDa light chain. The CD98 heavy chain is also known as the 4F2 antigen heavy chain or FRP-1, and it is encoded by the SLC3A2 gene. The CD98 heavy chain is capable of...  Read full blog post.
