Gene knockdown by ecdysone-based inducible RNAi in stable mammalian cell lines

Rangasamy, Danny; Tremethick, David; Greaves, Ian


RNA interference (RNAi) is a powerful tool for the functional analysis of essential genes in the mammalian genome. Here, we present a simple ecdysone-based inducible RNAi approach that allows high induction and adjustable control of short hairpin RNA (shRNA) expression for silencing gene expression in a wide range of mammalian cells. This protocol describes the following: the design and cloning of inducible shRNA; testing and validation of gene knockdown; and methodology for establishing stable...[Show more]
