MISSION® miRNA, Negative Control 2

Sequence from Caenorhabditis elegans with no homology to human gene sequences


product line


storage temp.


General description

MISSION® miRNA Negative Controls are an essential component to any miRNA experiment. Using a negative control allows the researcher to create a baseline for mRNA knockdown effciency. The negative controls have been carefully selected, and have no known homology to known human gene sequences. Negative Control 2 is based upon a Caenorhabditis elegans sequence.


MISSION® miRNA, Negative Control 2 has been used as a negative control for miRNA transfections.
