LOXL2 is a member of the lysyl oxidase gene family which is essential for the biogenesis of connective tissue. LOXL2 encodes an extracellular copper-dependent amine oxidase that catalyses the first step in the formation of crosslinks in collagens and elastin. LOXL2 may play an important role in developmental regulation, senescence, tumor suppression, cell growth control, and chemotaxis to each member of the family (1). LOXL2 may mediate fibroblast activation through enzymatic crosslinking of fibrillar collagen and local matrix tention, resulting in activation of TGFb1 signaling (2).

LOXL2 siRNAs are designed to specifically knock-down human LOXL2 expression.
Each siRNA duplex is supplied as 2.5nmol per tube (for example 6 x 2.5nmol = 3 x 5nmol per duplex). Briefly centrifuge one tube per duplex (maximum RCF 4,000g) to collect lyophilized siRNA at the bottom of the tube. Resuspend each 2.5nmol tube in 50 ul of DEPC-treated water (included in kit), which results in a 1x stock solution (50 uM). Gently pipet the solution 3-5 times to mix and avoid the introduction of bubbles. Optional: aliquot 1x stock solutions for storage.
Storage and Stability:
The lyophilized powder is stable for at least 4 weeks at room temperature. It is recommended that the lyophilized and resuspended siRNAs are stored at or below -20oC. After resuspension, siRNA stock solutions ≥2 uM can undergo up to 50 freeze-thaw cycles without significant degradation. For long-term storage, it is recommended that the siRNA is stored at -70oC. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
