RCC cell lines stably transduced with personalised shRNA libraries
In order to specifically target RNA expressed in individual RCC patients, a proprietary procedure for the enzymatic generation of transcriptome-based shRNA libraries developed at NMI has been applied within the PREDICT project. Following this protocol a set of 11 immortalized renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cell lines (RCC4, 786-0 A498, 769P, A704, Caki1, Caki2, TK10, UMRC2, UMRC3 and UO31) as well as primary cell lines derived from tumor tissue of 12 RCC patients were stably transduced with patient-derived shRNA (pshRNA) libraries within the course of the project. These pshRNA libraries were produced directly from tumor tissue of the very patients of which the cell lines have been generated. The procedure of pshRNA library generation encompassed the isolation of RNA from tumor tissue followed by the generation of double-stranded cDNA and its enzymatic restriction digest. Fragments of 21nt were linked with adaptor and hairpin sequences, amplified and normalized to finally generate a library of pshRNAs reflecting the transcriptome of the individual RCC cell line and patient, respectively. Each individual pshRNA library was then lentivirally bulk transduced into the very RCC tumor cells from which the library was generated.
pshRNA library transduced cell lines listed below are available to the scientific community via PREDICT partner NMI (see below for contact information) for screening purposes upon signing of a MTA restricting the use to academic research purposes.
