The miRIDIAN microRNA Hairpin InhibitorPositive Control is ideal for optimizing conditions for relevant, well-controlled microRNA modulation experiments. Both positive and negative control molecules are provided for loss-of-function microRNA studies.
Successful microRNA functional studies begin with optimization of the assay in each cell line and/or type of interest. To optimize inhibition experimental conditions by assessing the effect of inhibition on an endogenously expressed microRNA, we offer a validated Hairpin Inhibitor Positive Control.
Figure 1. | Endogenous levels of miR-16 were assayed 48 hours after transfection of either miRIDIAN miR-16 Hairpin Inhibitor, miR-21 Hairpin Inhibitor or Hairpin Inhibitor Negative Control #1. HeLa cells were transfected using DharmaFECT 1.
