MicroRNA Target Identification & Quantitation System — MirTrap
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are shown to be instrumental in regulating the expression of different target genes. Identifying miRNA targets has also been shown to be important in providing functional insights and strategies for therapy. The MirTrap System is a novel and powerful discovery tool that helps identify specific microRNA targets in cells. This system utilizes a mutant RISC complex that permits the microRNA to bind its targets but limits any further processing. Upon isolation of the complex, the microRNA target can be identified and quantified by next-gen sequencing or quantitative PCR methods.
