Unveil the Regulatory Power of Small RNAs

Small RNA sequencing (sRNA-Seq) offers a targeted approach to studying small non-coding RNA molecules, key players in gene regulation. Unlike total RNA-Seq, sRNA-Seq focuses on these critical regulators, including:

  • MicroRNAs (miRNAs): These tiny molecules regulate gene expression by binding to messenger RNA (mRNA) and promoting its degradation or inhibiting translation.

  • Small interfering RNAs (siRNAs): Similar to miRNAs, siRNAs silence gene expression but often originate from exogenous sources.

  • Other small non-coding RNAs: Explore a diverse range of small RNAs with regulatory functions, like Piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) and transfer RNA (tRNA) fragments.



By focusing on these potent regulators, sRNA-Seq empowers researchers to:

  • Identify miRNA and siRNA signatures: Uncover unique miRNA or siRNA profiles associated with specific diseases or biological processes.

  • Decipher gene regulatory networks: Elucidate how miRNAs and siRNAs fine-tune gene expression and cellular function.

  • Discover novel regulatory RNAs: Explore the roles of uncharacterized small RNAs in cellular regulation.

Our team of sequencing experts leverages sRNA-Seq for various research projects, including:

  • Cancer research: Identify miRNA signatures associated with tumorigenesis and metastasis.

  • Neurodegenerative disease research: Explore the role of miRNAs in neurological disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

  • Developmental biology: Investigate the involvement of small RNAs in embryonic development and cellular differentiation.

  • RNA therapeutics development: Discover novel miRNA targets for therapeutic intervention in various diseases.
