Objective To screen the optimal RNA interference sequence of acute monocytic leukemia associated antigen 22 （MLAA-22） gene in order to study gene function of it. Methods MLAA-22 coding sequence （CDS） was cloned by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction （RT-PCR） and the CDS was inserted in to pEGFP-N1-3FLAG vector to construct eukaryotic expression vector of MLAA-22. At the same time, four RNA interference sequences were designed and cloned to the vector. Expression vector and RNA interference vector were co-transfected into 293T cells, and the optimal RNA interference sequence was screened by fluorescence and Western blot analyses. Results MLAA-22 eukaryotic expression vector pEGFP-N1-3FLAG and four RNA interference vectors were successfully constructed. After co-transfected 293T cells, KD2 was selected as the optimal interference sequence of MLAA-22. Conclusion KD2 is an optimal interference sequence for targeting MLAA-22 antigen gene.
