SignalSilence® ATM siRNA I: Image 1
Western blot analysis of extracts from HeLa cells, transfected with 100 nM SignalSilence® Control siRNA (Unconjugated) #6568 (-), SignalSilence® ATM siRNA I (+) or SignalSilence® ATM siRNA II #6329 (+), using ATM (D2E2) Rabbit mAb #2873 (upper) or α-Tubulin (11H10) Rabbit mAb #2125 (lower). The ATM (D2E2) Rabbit mAb confirms silencing of ATM expression, while the α-Tubulin (11H10) Rabbit mAb is used as a loading control.

Product Usage Information

CST recommends transfection with 100 nM ATM siRNA I 48 to 72 hours prior to cell lysis. For transfection procedure, follow protocol provided by the transfection reagent manufacturer. Please feel free to contact CST with any questions on use.

Each vial contains the equivalent of 100 transfections, which corresponds to a final siRNA concentration of 100 nM per transfection in a 24-well plate with a total volume of 300 μl per well.


SignalSilence® siRNA is supplied in RNAse-free water. Aliquot and store at -20ºC.

Product Description

SignalSilence® ATM siRNA I from Cell Signaling Technology (CST) allows the researcher to specifically inhibit ATM expression using RNA interference, a method whereby gene expression can be selectively silenced through the delivery of double stranded RNA molecules into the cell. All SignalSilence® siRNA products from CST are rigorously tested in-house and have been shown to reduce target protein expression by western analysis.

Quality Control

Oligonucleotide synthesis is monitored base by base through trityl analysis to ensure appropriate coupling efficiency. The oligo is subsequently purified by affinity-solid phase extraction. The annealed RNA duplex is further analyzed by mass spectrometry to verify the exact composition of the duplex. Each lot is compared to the previous lot by mass spectrometry to ensure maximum lot-to-lot consistency.


ATM (ataxia telangiectasia mutated kinase) is a serine/threonine protein kinase best known for its role in DNA repair signaling in response to DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs). When DSBs occur, the MRE11:RAD50:NBS1 (MRN) sensor complex recruits ATM to sites of DNA damage. ATM then signals to numerous effector proteins, leading to cellular responses including regulation of DNA repair, cell cycle progression, apoptosis, senescence, gene transcription. Along with ATR, DNA-PKcs, SMG1 and mTOR, ATM is a member of the PI3K-like protein kinase (PIKK) family. PIKK family members typically function in response to various types of cellular stress. Substrates of ATM are numerous, and include CHK2, AKT, p53, BRCA1 and DNA-PK (reviewed in 1,3). Inactive ATM exists as a homodimer. In response to DSBs, ATM undergoes autophosphorylation in trans at Ser1981, which leads to dissociation of the complex to become an active monomer (2). Functional DNA repair pathways are important in cellular homeostasis, and defects in these pathways cause genomic instability, which can lead to tumorigenesis (3). Inactivation of ATM results in ataxia telangiectasia (AT), a neurodegenerative disease characterized by predisposition to cancer (4).
