New Products: Exiqon's MiRcury LNA microRNA Arrays

Premium

Exiqon last week launched the seventh generation of its MiRcury LNA microRNA Arrays for expression profiling of microRNA from human, mouse and rat.

Exiqon's arrays consist of 3,100 capture probes that cover all mature microRNAs annotated in miRBase release 18.0 for human, mouse, and rat, including related viral and additional 25 proprietary validated human, mouse, and rat microRNAs not yet listed in the miRBase.

In total, almost 1,900 human microRNAs are covered by the array. The chip has more than 800 new microRNA capture probes compared to the previous version of the array, Exiqon said.

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.

TB Resistance Insights Gleaned From Genome Sequence, Antimicrobial Response Assays

Researchers in PLOS Biology explore M. tuberculosis resistance with a combination of sequencing and assays looking at the minimum inhibitory concentrations of 13 drugs.

Mendelian Disease Genes Prioritized Using Tissue-Specific Expression Clues

Mendelian gene candidates could be flagged for further functional analyses based on tissue-specific transcriptome and proteome profiles, a new Journal of Human Genetics paper says.

Single-Cell Sequencing Points to Embryo Mosaicism

Mosaicism may affect preimplantation genetic tests for aneuploidy, a single-cell sequencing-based analysis of almost three dozen embryos in PLOS Genetics finds.
