miRNA
  • Ideal for reliably quantitating transcripts longer than 200 nucleotides
  • Detect only the intended noncoding RNA transcript
  • Assays are based on proven TaqMan® Assay technology and use existing assay design and manufacturing infrastructure
  • Available for nearly 30 different species

How it works

Long noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) are transcripts longer than 200 nucleotides. This definition distinguishes long ncRNAs from small regulatory RNAs such as miRNAs. Rather than potentially detecting different transcript variants at a particular gene locus like TaqMan Gene Expression Assays, TaqMan Non-coding RNA Assays detect only the intended ncRNA transcript.
