Housekeeping Genes: Universal Positive,,,Controls in siRNA Knockdown Experiments

RNA interference is a powerful technique for gene knockdown experiments in academic research and an important tool for target identification and target validation in therapeutic research.

A growing number of different cell lines are used for gene knockdown experiments, and in many cases protocols for transfection do not exist. In order to optimize transfection conditions for a new cell line being investigated, luciferase-expressing plasmids are often cotransfected with the siRNA. However, the transfection conditions for plasmids and siRNA are quite different, as the plasmids must enter the nucleus, whereas siRNAs act in the cytoplasm therefore, these optimizations may lead to poor results. In addition, the use of fluorescently labeled siRNAs can give unpredictable results due to hydrophobic effects of fluorophore groups.

We have successfully used housekeeping genes as universal positive control genes for knockdown experiments in two different cell lines. The mRNA levels were analyzed using the LightCycler Instrument and were quantified relative to other housekeeping genes using the LightCycler h-Housekeeping Gene Sets.

Materials and Methods

Cell culture
Cells of the human adherent cell line PC3 were cultured in RPMI 1640 medium containing 10% (v/v) fetal calf serum and 2mM L-glutamine. Cells of the human adherent cell line HCT116 were cultured in McCoys 5A medium containing 10% (v/v) fetal calf serum and 2 mM L-glutamine.

Two days prior to transfection with siRNA oligonucleotides, 5x104 cells were plated in each well of 24- well plates. The siRNA (Dharmac
