miRNA Array Strip
Affymetrix® miRNA Array Strip is a powerful tool for studying the role of small non-coding RNA (miRNA, snoRNA, and scaRNA) and their importance in cancer and other diseases.
Since their discovery in 1993, small non-coding RNAs (microRNA, scaRNA, and snoRNA) have emerged as a major component in the regulatory circuitry that underlies the development and physiology of complex organisms.
As a result, it has become increasingly important to complement messenger RNA (mRNA) gene expression studies with miRNA analysis in order to understand the biological context of differentially expressed genes. These key functional gene products are estimated to regulate approximately 30 percent of all protein-coding genes.
Keeping pace with the discovery of new and novel miRNA, Affymetrix is pleased to announce the release of the NEW Affymetrix® miRNA 3.1 Array Strip—the latest addition to our growing catalog of miRNA products.
