SHC009 (sh-ARHGDIA) is a lentiviral plasmid that contains a shRNA sequence targeting the human ARHGDIA transcript.
The shRNA insert is expressed under control of the human U6 promoter.
ARHGDIA is an ubiquitously expressed protein that acts on human Rho GTPases including RhoA, Rac1 and Cdc42, by keeping these proteins locked in an inactive state. Complete understanding of ARHGDIA's roles is still being elucidated, but it is believed to be involved in various signal transduction pathways and cellular cytoskeleton functions.
SHC009 (sh-ARHGDIA) is useful as a positive knockdown control in experiments using cell lines expressing ARHGDIA.
The specific clone number for the ARHGDIA control is TRNC0000008004 and was chosen from the available complete target set (GenBank Accession Number NM_004309). The control has demonstrated consistent knockdown of 90% compared to normal gene expression in the human epithelial lung carcinoma cell line A549 via quantitative RT PCR and Western blot analysis (Antibody Product No. R3025).


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

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.
