The ready-to-use MISSION miRNA mimics are small, double-stranded RNA molecules designed to mimic endogenous mature miRNA molecules when introduced into cells. miRNA are known to regulate gene expression in a variety of manners, including translational repression, mRNA cleavage and deadenylation.

MISSION miRNA mimics provide miRNA researchers with a range of options from individual MISSION mimics (5 nmol/mimic) to a full library of human miRNA mimics (1,902 mimics at 0.25 nmol each) based on latest version from the Sanger Institute (miRBase).

  • Human miRNA mimic library based on miRBase Version 21 (2,754 mimics at 0.25 nmol each)
  • Optimized and ready for transfection
  • Novel MISSION miRNA mimic design has been functionally tested for knockdown efficiency against natural miRNA targets
  • Unique MISSION miRNA mimic design significantly reduces possible sense strand off target effects
  • Available as a whole human library and individual miRNA targets
