A synthetic miRNA mimic for miRNA functional analysis. 5 nmol is supplied.
• Optimized design results in correct strand utilization by RISC
• Purified and ready to transfect
Ambion™ Pre-miR™ miRNA Precursor Molecules are small, chemically modified, double-stranded RNA molecules designed to mimic endogenous mature miRNAs. This ready-to-use miRNA mimic can be introduced into cells using transfection or electroporation parameters similar to those used for siRNAs. They enable detailed study of miRNA biological effects via gain-of-function experiments. Pre-miR™ Negative Control #2 is a random sequence Pre-miR™ molecule that has been extensively tested in human cell lines and tissues and validated to produce no identifiable effects on known miRNA function. NOTE: Pre-miR™ miRNA Precursors are not hairpin constructs and should not be confused with pre-miRNAs.
