DharmaFECT Duo transfection reagent achieves reliable cotransfection results for a variety of experimental goals. The graph demonstrates specific modulation of Renilla luciferase (Rluc) gene:
Rluc expression is similar for Plasmid Alone and Plasmid+Control
Down-regulation of the Rluc as a result of miRNA mimic (plasmid + miRNA mimic)
Excellent knockdown of the Rluc by siRNA (Plasmid + siRNA)
The psiCHECK-2 vector (100 ng/well; Promega) with cloned microRNA recognition sites for miR-28, miR-95, miR-30d, and miR-105, respectively, were complexed alone or with RNAi reagents (10 nM) using DharmaFECT Duo (0.2 μL/well) in MCF-7 cells at 10,000 cells/well (96-well plate). The RNAi reagents were Dharmacon miRIDIAN Mimics (Negative Control, miR-28, miR-95, miR-30d, and miR-105, respectively) or siRNA (Renilla luciferase pool). Firefly and Renilla luciferase expression was assessed at 48 hours using the Dual-Glo Luciferase Assay System (Promega) and normalized to identically treated psiCHECK-2 empty vector.
