Tools for microRNA Research

Purification, Detection, Quantification, Overexpression & Knockdown

microRNAs are a class of naturally occurring, small non-coding RNAs that control gene expression by translational repression or mRNA degradation. They modulate a variety of cellular pathways, including development, differentiation, cell proliferation, apoptosis, and multiple forms of cancer.
microRNAs are widely expressed throughout the plant and animal kingdoms and may comprise 1-5% of animal genes. Since the discovery of lin-4 and let-7 in Caenorhabditis elegans, thousands of  microRNAs have been identified through genomic and bioinformatic approaches.

Innovative technologies for the purification, expression profiling, overexpression and knockdown of microRNAs are offered to enhance your research discoveries.
