|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1969b was selected from the C-term region of human Rde-4. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|

Double-stranded (ds) RNA is a potent sequence-specific inhibitor of gene function. RNA interference (RNAi) is a cellular defense mechanism that uses double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) as a sequence-specific trigger to guide the degradation of homologous single-stranded RNAs. RNAi is a multistep process involving several proteins and at least one type of RNA intermediate, a population of small 21锟?5 nt RNAs (called siRNAs) that are initially derived from cleavage of the dsRNA trigger. Genetic studies have implicated several RNA interference-deficient (rde) family members in germline maintenance and development, and several simple loss of function mutants have been identified. Family members rde-1 and rde-4 are required for RNAi but are not essential for organismal viability. While rde-1 and rde-4 are distinct from other RNAi-deficient family members both both for their inability to mobilize transposons and lack of chromosome loss, each appears to have a distinct role in the interference mechanism. Evidence indicates that rde-4 is involved before or during production of siRNAs, whereas rde-1 acts after the siRNAs have been formed.
