- Reporter controls known to provide high knockdown of reporter genes
- Efficient knockdown of luciferase and green fluorescent protein (GFP)
During experimental setup using a reporter-gene construct, a reporter control siRNA can be used to determine optimal conditions. When using a reporter-gene construct, a reporter control siRNA transfected in every experiment will indicate if conditions become suboptimal. Cotransfection of a plasmid carrying a reporter gene and a reporter control siRNA is a commonly used control in high-throughput RNAi.
