[…] were conducted as described previously (). pv11 rna-seq data generated for this study have been deposited to the ncbi sra under accession number srp070984., hsf gene sirnas were designed using sidirect (). the uniqueness of each candidate sirna was confirmed by blast search of the p. vanderplanki genome (midgebase: to minimize off-target effects. […]

[…] virus was collected, concentrated with the lenti-x concentrator (takara bio), and used to infect a549 cells and mda-231-d cells., rnai was carried out with the following sirnas designed from sidirect (rnai inc.) (5′→3′): human tuft1#1, ggauauaaguagcaagcuuga and aagcuugcuacuuauauccuc; human tuft1#2, guagccuuuugcggaaaaauu and uuuuuccgcaaaaggcuacuc; human mtor#1, gaucucaugggcuucggaaca […]
