MiraMas™ Kit

Product Description
The MiraMas™ Kit is designed to create cDNA libraries for qPCR detection of microRNAs and other small RNAs. The method is based on ligation of a 5’- adenylated/3’ blocked oligonucleotide adapter (Adenylated 3’ Ligation Adapter) to the 3’ ends of the small RNAs using RNA Ligase, followed by reverse transcription with M-MLV Reverse Transcriptase to convert the small RNAs to cDNA templates for qPCR. The ligated adapter provides the binding site for the reverse transcription (RT) primer. After the second-strand cDNA is synthesized by extension of a microRNA-specific Forward PCR primer, the same adapter sequence serves as binding site for the Reverse PCR primer. Use of an adenylated adapter is advantageous because it streamlines the work-flow and leads to increased specificity for producing the desired reaction products, with fewer unwanted side products. The MiraMas protocol uses a single-tube format for ligation, reverse transcription, and subsequent dilution of the cDNA library. The MiraMas Kit allows users great flexibility in formatting their experiments, in that the number of samples that can be processed is scaled to the amount of sample RNA used in the reactions. Depending on the amount of sample RNA, the kit can be used to produce cDNA libraries from 30 to 150 samples. Each cDNA library can be used for detection of tens to hundreds of target microRNAs. The kit includes enough Universal Reverse Primer for 1,000 real-time PCRs.

Cancer-Fighting Properties Of Horseradish Revealed
Horseradish contains cancer-fighting compounds known as glucosinolates. Glucosinolate type and quantity vary depending on size and quality of the horseradish root. For the first time, the activation of cancer-fighting enzymes by glucosinolate products in horseradish has been documented.
Process Analysis in Real Time
With a real-time mass spectrometer developed by Fraunhofer researchers, it has become possible for the first time to analyze up to 30 components simultaneously from the gas phase and a liquid, including in-situ analysis.

Process Contaminants in Vegetable Oils and Foods
Glycerol-based process contaminants found in palm oil, but also in other vegetable oils, margarines and some processed foods, raise potential health concerns for average consumers of these foods in all young age groups, and for high consumers in all age groups.
Apricot Kernels Pose Risk of Cyanide Poisoning
Eating more than three small raw apricot kernels, or less than half of one large kernel, in a serving can exceed safe levels. Toddlers consuming even one small apricot kernel risk being over the safe level.
