Small & microRNA Isolation Overview

The importance of miRNAs and other small RNAs in regulating gene expression and other cellular processes is clear, but many kits from other companies do not effectively recover miRNAs and other small RNA molecules.  In addition, many small RNAs are expressed at low abundance, or only in specific cell types. To obtain results you can trust, you need to recover ALL small RNAs during your purification. The RNA isolation kits from Zymo Research efficiently recover small RNA molecules as short as 17 nucleotides.
