Affymetrix miRNA 4.0 Array : Comprehensive tool for understanding the regulation of coding and non-coding transcripts

Affymetrix GeneChip® miRNA 4.0 Array

Many diseases, including cancer, are frequently described as diseases of disordered gene expression. It is estimated that more than 30% of protein translation of coding genes is regulated by miRNA. There is also a large amount of growing evidence suggesting miRNA interacts with long non-coding RNA in the signaling networks that regulate alternative splicing events, which impacts cellular processes such as apoptosis, proliferation, and differentiation-all of which have shown to be causative elements in diseases such as cancer.

Measuring the changes in these critical nodes of regulation is extremely important for deciphering the biological context of differentially expressed genes. This new array design is a powerful tool for studying the role of small non-coding RNAs and their involvement in a broad spectrum of developmental and physiological mechanisms.

To keep pace with the discovery of new and novel miRNA, Affymetrix is pleased to announce the release of the NEW GeneChip® miRNA 4.0 Array to our growing catalog of miRNA arrays. This new array offers updated content with the same high performance as the previous generation array.
