Stability of functional groups on DNA oligos during long term storage and defrosting/refreezing?
Dear global colleagues,
Do you have insights into the stability of functional groups (I am particularly interested in phosphorylation and Acrydite modifications)? IDT, for example, has detailed oligo storage advice on their website and it seems that olives are quite stable at -20 for up to two years and even a few defrosting cycles. However, they do not give details for functionalisation and I know from my own experience that biotinylation is quite sensitive (I estimate only a year storage is OK without any intermediate defrosting). What about the other functional groups? Wikipedia suggests Acrydite is also less stable. How long would you use what kind of functionalisation?

I need to conduct cell proliferation assay using alamar blue. The test agent is a kind of exosomes. If anyone has working protocol, can you please share?
How does Ovation RNA seq V2 kit produce double stranded cDNA?
- Praveen Singh
I am trying to use the Ovation RNA seq V2 kit from Nugen or Tecan to amplify low-input RNA (about 1ng). (https://lifesciences.tecan.com/ovation-low-input-rna-seq-kit-v2?p=tab--1).
The Protocol and workflow of the SPIA amplification process show linear amplification of cDNA, which is single-stranded (As per the schematic provided by them). However, the kit claims it generates double-stranded cDNA, which is not shown in the figure or explained how it is done!!!
Can somebody please help me understand this?
How does the Ovation RNA seq v2 kit generate double-stranded cDNA instead of single-stranded cDNA??!!
Nugen/ tecan suggests using their library preparation kits (for Illumina) which can utilize only dsDNA templates but not single-stranded.
They seem to work well, but I don't understand how the dsDNA is generated in the amplification step (RNA Seq V2 kit).
Wild type mouse T cell proliferation was induced by OVA?
- Zha Zhi
Hello, I would like to ask you a question. Recently, I injected 100ug OVA subcutaneously into C57BL/6 mice and conducted enhanced immunization on the seventh day. On the 21st day, cells from the spleen and inguin lymph nodes of mice were taken and CD3, CD4 and CD8 antibodies were detected to detect T cells. The ratio did not increase. I tried several times and got the same result. I did not know what the problem was. How many times can OVA subcutaneous injection cause obvious T cell proliferation and detection?
Is there any method to detect the correct structure of a shRNA?
- Aleix Benitez
In the lab we're doing a project where we start from a DNA sequence. When this is re-transscribed it would give us the sequency of a shRNA but I would like to know what step/methodology I could do to detect whether my re-transscribed product has shRNA conformation and not for example ssRNA or dsRNA. Thank you very much!

Any expertise on confocal fluorescence microscopy on RBCs?
- Ignazio Restivo
Hi, does anyone have any experience with confocal fluorescence microscopy analysis with suspended cells? I’m supposed to study some of the proteins in the erythrocytes, but I can’t find any recurring protocols for fixing RBCs.
Thanks in advance to those who can answer me!
Why my abiotic control of Remazol blue declorization show decolorization up to 3%, did that number can be negligible?
- Dwi Rahmawati
I did decolorization assay of Remazol blue using bacteria incoculum and abiotic contol using media contain dye without inoculum. Decolorization precentage of dye with inocolum up to 40% but the control also show decolorization under 4% did that number can be negligible?
What is the best fluorescent-labeled for a siRNA?
- Mahzad Nikbakhtrad
My research is on TNBC and I have 3 questions about siRNA labeling.
1. I want to use fluorescent-labeled siRNA. Which label would you suggest to choose?
2. Where is the best position to add fluorescent label to siRNA molecules? 3’ or 5’?
3. Does this labeling interfere with siRNA function?
Thank you all.
A new "polystyrene biotin support" has been synthesized for the solid support synthesis of the 3'-biotinylated oligonucleotides. Several oligos were synthesized and were analyzed by the HPLC and Mass Spec. Oligo analysis revealed that the biotin gets oxidized to "biotin sulfoxide" during the synthesis.
