I have posted many success stories resulting from use of Neuromics' Neuromics' i-FectTM siRNA Transfection Kit. It has been 3 months since my last posting so here I would like to post some recent highlights.
Here I feature customer publication demonstrating:
- Down regulation of Neuroligin 2-data showed unexpected upregulation and pronociceptive effects of the “inhibitory” NL2 in neuropathic pain, suggesting a functional shift of NL2 from inhibition to excitation that changed the synaptic ratio toward higher excitation.
- Role of IGFPB5 for survival of neurons in post-natal development.
- HDAC role in Anxiety and Alcoholsim

Igf1 siRNA (stealth siRNA, Invitrogen) or Igfbp5 siRNA with i-Fect reagent (Neuromics) was delivered intraventricularly through the cisterna magna at P3 twice with a 12-h interval...

I will keep updating you as more pubs and data becomes available.
