MicroRNA mimics and inhibitors

Both miRNA types are represented on BenchSci.

MicroRNA (miRNA) is one of the new Product Subtypes available for RNAi. In research, there are broadly two categories of miRNA—mimics and inhibitors. On the BenchSci reagent platform, both product types are visible together when you apply the miRNA filter. If you are presented with an overwhelming number of products, try adjusting your search to include the specific miRNA accession as a target (in the format miR-xxx). This should help limit the number of results and help the mimics vs inhibitors stand out.

If filtering mimics from inhibitors is important to your workflow, we’d love to talk to you about it!
