SureFIND Transcriptome PCR Arrays
For identification of molecular mechanisms that regulate gene expression
SureFIND Transcriptome PCR Arrays are ready-to-use cDNA panels derived from cells that are treated with miRNA mimics, siRNAs for transcription factors, or chemicals inhibiting specific signaling pathways. Simply screen the cDNA samples using a verified gene-specific qPCR assay to discover which treatments change the expression of the gene of interest.
SureFIND Transcriptome PCR Arrays can be used to determine gene expression regulation in cancer studies (see figure SureFIND Transcriptome PCR Arrays identify miRNA regulators of INPPL1 expression).
SureFIND Transcriptome PCR Arrays are innovative tools for identifying which miRNA, signaling pathway, or transcription factor regulates the expression of any gene.
In each well of a SureFIND Transcriptome PCR Array is a unique "transcriptome" or cDNA sample synthesized from cells treated with a unique miRNA mimic, chemical inhibitor, or siRNA. Using real-time PCR, researchers can identify the mechanisms of gene expression regulation. A change in the expression of the tested gene in a specific sample shows that the corresponding miRNA, signaling pathway activity, or transcription factor is a regulator of that gene.

Using SureFIND miRNA Transcriptome PCR Arrays is as simple as setting up a real-time PCR experiment. Simply mix primers with the appropriate PCR master mix, aliquot equal volumes into each well of the plate, and run the plate in a real-time PCR instrument (see figure "SureFIND Transcriptome PCR protocol").
After running the PCR, the Excel-based data analysis template for SureFIND Transcriptome PCR Arrays performs the ∆∆CT-based fold-change. The results are delivered in a tabular format and assists in hit selection.
