High-Throughput RNAi Screening: Methods and Protocols by David O. Azorsa, Shilpi Arora

By David O. Azorsa, Shilpi Arora

High-throughput RNAi screening continues to be essentially the most familiar applied sciences to accomplish goal id and validation reviews in an independent demeanour. those assays are both vital for examine and improvement throughout educational, biotech, and pharmaceutical industries. The good fortune of those screening efforts relies on strong methodologies to accomplish those displays. In High-Throughput RNAi Screening: tools and Protocols, specialist researchers within the box proportion protocols and techniques for appearing high-throughput RNAi (HT-RNAi) displays. those contain using quite a few RNAi structures and supply tools in mammalian and non-mammalian structures, entire organism and mobile types, and numerous purposes, corresponding to drug sensitizer id. ultimately, the booklet examines the newest developments within the fields of assay improvement, library screening, information research, and hit choice. Written within the hugely winning Methods in Molecular Biology series layout, chapters comprise introductions to their respective issues, lists of the required fabrics and reagents, step by step, comfortably reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips about troubleshooting and averting recognized pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and thorough, High-Throughput RNAi Screening: equipment and Protocols provides a accomplished resource of protocols and different worthy info to make strong and winning assays attainable for all who desire to follow HT-RNAi of their research.

Example text

Prime the cassette with 6 mL of sterile Milli-Q H2O. Prepare the cell suspension while assay plates are in shaker. 1. Thaw an ampule of assay ready cells and wash the cells with normal culture medium (see Note 9). 2. Count the cells with a hemocytometer or an automated cell counter. 3. Suspend the cells in normal culture medium: 25,000 cells/mL in a 50 mL conical tube. Prepare enough cell suspension to allow for priming with 6 mL of cell suspension. 4. Check the settings of the BioTek MultiFlo FX (dispense 20 μL/well into the desired layout).

6. Centrifuge with the capacity to spin 15 ml conical tubes. 7. 12-channel pipette. Pipette must effectively dispense 20–200 μl of liquid. 8. CO2 Incubator. 4 Bioluminescence Assay Components 1. Cell-Titer Glo (CTG; Promega). 2. Orbital plate shaker. 3. Luminescence plate reader. 3 Methods The following method describes a siRNA reverse transfection assay for optimization of four transfection reagents in human cell lines using a luminescent-based viability assay. Sufficient reagents are prepared to test three assay plates that correspond to three variables, usually different cell lines, cell densities, incubation times, assay plates, etc.

Fully automated HCS microscope with appropriate filter sets and objectives, for example, Scan^R (Olympus). 2. High-content analysis software, for example, CellProfiler (Broad Institute) or Columbus Image Data Storage and Analysis System (PerkinElmer). 1 Plate Format Design The key to a successful genome-wide RNAi screen is careful assay design and planning. All individual steps of the screening protocol need to be optimized and typically several pilot experiments should be performed to validate the pipeline.
