GeneCopoeia: Precursor microRNA (miRNA) Expression Plasmids

By: Genecopoeia  11-11-2011

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding single stranded RNA molecules found in eukaryotic organisms. They are highly conserved and usually 21-23 nucleotides in length. miRNAs are involved in almost all cellular functions and regulate gene expression by binding to the 3' untranslated regions (3' UTRs) of targeted mRNAs. Irregularities in miRNA-regulated gene expression have been found to be associated with cancers, cardiovascular disorders and a variety of other diseases.

GeneCopoeia offers miExpress precursor miRNA expression clones in lentiviral and non-viral vectors with eGFP reporter gene. Hairpin precursor miRNA of approximately 150 nucleotides is cloned into lentiviral or non-viral vectors for delivery in virtually all cell types.

Functional assays — KD effect of shRNA can be studied by end-point biological and biochemical assays such as cell proliferation, colony formation, cell cycle analysis, and migration based on the potential role played by each gene /protein.


GeneCopoeia: Gluc-ON™ Promoter Reporter Clones

Since the putative cis-acting enhancer elements are expected to exist in the cloned promoter region, the luciferase activity observed during the reporter assay closely resembles the actual promoter regulation of these genes within human cells.
