SHC002 (non-target shRNA) is a lentiviral plasmid derived from pLKO.1-puro (= SHC001 (empty vector)) by cloning a short hairpin RNA (shRNA) sequence into the AgeI and EcoRI sites.
The shRNA insert does not target human and mouse genes, making it useful as a negative control in experiments using the MISSION TRC1/1.5 shRNA library clones.
The shRNA sequence contains 4 base pair mismatches to any known human or mouse gene. This allows one to examine the effect of transfection of a short hairpin on gene expression and interpret the knockdown effect seen with shRNA clones.
The shRNA insert is expressed under control of the human U6 promoter.

MEDIUM INFORMATION

Grow for 20-22 hours in TB-8gly medium (modified Terrific Broth medium, containing 8 ml/l glycerol instead of 4 ml/l) with 100 μg/ml carbenicillin, resulting in an increased plasmid stability as compared to ampicillin.
BCCM/GeneCorner uses the 'Terrific Broth, modified' from Sigma (cat. nr. T0918, Fluka). You can also prepare the medium yourself:
1. add the following to 800 ml distilled H2O:
- 12,0 g tryptone (enzymatic casein digest)
- 24,0 g yeast extract
- 8 ml glycerol
2. adjust to 900 ml with distilled H2O
3. sterilize by autoclaving (20 minutes at 121°C)
4. allow to cool to room temperature
5. adjust volume to 1000 ml with 100 ml of a filter-sterilized solution of 0,17M KH2PO4 and 0,72M K2HPO4
HOST STRAIN INFORMATION

Sigma recommends the host strain Escherichia coli K12 GC5 (catalogue number: G3169) for transformation with this shRNA control vector.
According to Sigma, the genotype of this GC5 strain is identical to the genotype of the Escherichia coli K12 DH5αT1R strain, which is a T1 bacteriophage resistant DH5α derivative.
Genotype: Φ80lacZΔM15 Δ(lacZYA-argF)U169 endA1 recA1 relA1 gyrA96 hsdR17(rk-, mk+) phoA supE44 thi-1 tonA
