Mouse DECIPHER™ shRNA Libraries
Mouse DECIPHER shRNA libraries are pooled, barcoded, lentiviral shRNA libraries optimized for RNAi Genetic Screens in pooled format. They target approximately 10,000 mouse genes.
The DECIPHER RNAi screening platform was an open source project from 2010-2014, created by Cellecta to provide tools for researchers to perform and analyze comprehensive shRNA knockdown screens and to develop a standardized, yet versatile platform for collecting and comparing results from different studies and labs. DECIPHER Project members have published numerous peer-reviewed papers. More information and resources are available on the DECIPHER Project website.
Pooled shRNA Libraries
- 5 to 6 shRNAs per gene
- Effective shRNA designs that generate > 70% knockdown for more than 75% of the target genes represented
- Greater than 90% of the shRNA constructs are present within a 10-fold distribution range
- Mouse library targets pathway-related and disease-associated mouse genes
Intelligent Barcode Design, Quality Data
- 18-nt barcodes facilitate Next-Gen Sequencing (NGS) data analysis and identification of functional shRNAs
- Compatible with Illumina HiSeq, GAIIx, and NextSeq NGS systems
- Barcodes are identified and converted to lists of genes/shRNA with enumerated barcode data
- Amplification of shRNA hairpins is not required
The histograms above show the distribution of shRNA/barcode sequences in the DECIPHER plasmid shRNA libraries. Virtually all of the shRNA are present in more than 100 copies and most are around 1,000 copies per 20 million HT sequencing “reads”. Also, there is less than a 10-fold difference between the most and least represented sequences for about 90% of the shRNAs, an indication that the libraries have a balanced representation of all shRNAs.

Cellecta performed an RNAi screen with a DECIPHER library to identify prostate cancer-specific gene targets with therapeutic potential in prostate neoplasia treatment. A viability screen was performed on a set of model prostate carcinoma cell lines.

Next-Gen Sequencing of Samples from Genetic Screens
Cellecta DECIPHER shRNA libraries are provided with a complete protocol and all sequencing information to enable researchers to perform high throughput genetics screens and analysis. However, we do also provide Next-Gen Sequencing (NGS) and analysis services for researchers running their own screens with our libraries. Just provide harvested cells for each time point or treatment condition (one sample), and we extract DNA, amplify, sequence, and assemble the data with some basic analysis.
You provide Cellecta with frozen cell pellets or tissue after screening…
…and Cellecta does the rest:
- Extracts genomic DNA
- Amplifies barcodes
- Performs NGS on the Illumina NextSeq or HiSeq
- Enumerates shRNA counts from raw sequencing data
Please see the Next-Gen Sequencing and Analysis web page for additional information and how to order.
