New: Ion AmpliSeq Transcriptome Mouse Gene Expression Kit

The Ion AmpliSeq Transcriptome Mouse Gene Expression Kit used with the Ion S5 System helps to enable fast and affordable gene expression analysis from samples limited in quantity. With simultaneous amplification of more than 20,000 RefSeq genes in a single tube, starting from as little as 10 ng of total RNA, this kit can be an important tool in oncology and translational research. The Ion AmpliSeq Transcriptome Mouse Gene Expression Kit offers:

  • Low sample input—as little as 10 ng of total RNA
  • Fast gene expression profiling with simple workflow—go from RNA to data in <2 days and only ~45 minutes of total hands-on time with the automated workflow of the Ion S5 and Ion Chef Systems
  • Streamlined data analysis—export data with Torrent Suite Software into existing analysis software

Looking for a gene expression signature in triple-negative breast cancer research samples using the Ion AmpliSeq Transcriptome Human Gene Expression kit

Is there only one way to do RNA-Seq library prep? Hear Milan Radovich, PhD, of Indiana University discuss his research on triple-negative breast cancer expression-based gene signatures.

Quantitative and differential gene expression analysis is fundamental to many biological research applications including gene regulation analysis, correlating gene expression with phenotypic information, and cellular pathway analysis. Conventional gene expression profiling methods include hybridization-based (microarray) and amplification-based (qRT-PCR) technologies. However, methods present certain limitations:

  • Despite requiring significant amounts of RNA, microarrays remain limited in their sensitivity and specificity
  • Although accepted as the gold standard for gene expression analysis, qRT-PCR is generally low-throughput, and substantial amounts of RNA are required if large numbers of genes are to be tested

As such, both technologies present workflow challenges when analyzing samples that are limited in quantity or quality, such as degraded RNA from FFPE tissues. Targeted sequencing using NGS and the Ion AmpliSeq Transcriptome Human Gene Expression Kit not only provides a representation of absolute expression, but also can identify and quantify low-abundance transcripts quickly and easily for both intact and degraded samples.
