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 1 is based upon a Arabidopsis thaliana sequence.


MISSION® miRNA, Negative Control 1 has been used as a negative control for miRNA transfections.
