Lentivirus miRNA Inhibitors
miRNA inhibitors block miRNA regulation of target gene expression by stable suppression and can knock down native miRNA expression in cells. They can be used in miRNA loss-of-function studies, miRNA target site identification and validation, and miRNA screening experiments. abm's Lentivirus miRNA Inhibitors allow for stable, long term expression of miRNA inhibitors from your cell line.
- We offer a collection of miRNA Inhibitors for knockdown of over 5000 miRNAs from human, mouse, and rat.
- Lentiviral delivery for integration of genetic material into host cells, causing stable, long term gene expression.
- Lentivirus has a broad host range and can infect both dividing and non-dividing cells, allowing gene delivery to a wide variety of cell types.

|What is the Sanger miRBase Sequence Database?
miRBase is a sequence database that has been established by the Sanger Institute. Each entry in the microRNA Registry represents a predicted hairpin portion of a microRNA transcript (termed mir in the database), with information on the location and sequence of the mature microRNA sequence (termed miR). The database provides microRNA gene hunters with unique names for novel microRNA genes prior to publication of results and a searchable database of published microRNA.
|When was the latest update of your array sequences?
The content of our arrays has been updated to miRBase Release 16.0.
|Can I quantify mature miRNA in total RNA using your cDNA synthesis and kit and qPCR master mix?
Yes, that is what it is designed for.
|Which genes are targeted by a specific miRNA?
You can search for predicted and validated miRNA target genes at http://mirbase.org/.
Just type in your miRNA name (eg. hsa-mir-145) or accession number in the search bar and look for the targeted genes.
|pLenti-III-miR-Off system or LentimiRa system uses blank vector for control, but I usually use scrambled control for si-RNA experiments. Is it supported to use blank control not scrambled for miRNA experiments?
Both scrambled and blank controls are effective negative controls. However, there are debates over off-target effects when using scrambled sequences. By using a blank vector as negative control, the off-target effect can be eliminated. If your experiment requires a scrambled control over a blank control, we can custom make that for you as well upon request.
|How does miRNA inhibitor adenovirus work?
The miRNA inhibitor is in the form of a short hairpin which is complementary to the mature miRNA sequence that it targets. Its expression is under the control of the H1 promoter in an Adenovirus vector. The packaged adenovirus can be used to transfect your target cells and deliver the miRNA inhibitor into the cells and knockdown its target mature miRNA.
