Nov. 14, 2008 - PRLog -- SilenciX cell lines are target-specific silenced cells. They are produced as ready-to-use validated models, thus enabling researchers to focus on their experimental work without having to first construct the tools required for their studies.

The innovative technology is based on non-viral transfections of non-integrative vectors. The episomal vectors are maintained tethered to the host chromosomes, at a very low copy number per cell allowing long-term studies, consistent large cell supplies and high reproducibility in experiments, with no additional stress related to cell transfections.

Guaranty of target-specific knock-down at RNA level is at least 70%, cell lines produced so far mostly show over 85% silencing. Design of shRNAs is powered by the new DSIR algorithm for the prediction of RNAi efficacy and off-target blast screening.

SABiosciences (http://www.sabiosciences.com/) based in Frederick (MD), will be making SilenciX available throughout the US market.

Aurélie Serra (Product Manager - tebu-bio) adds " We are pleased that our partnership with SABiosciences will enable American scientists to have access to these reliable tools for target validation and drug discoveries in Life Sciences".
