miRZip Knockdown Vectors

Permanently knockdown miRs with SBI’s miRZip anti-miRNA Expression Lentivectors

Leveraging SBI’s powerful and well-regarded third-generation lentivector technology, each of our miRZip lentivectors expresses a short hairpin RNA (shRNA) that, after processing, preferentially produces an anti-sense miRNA. The hairpin is rationally designed to be asymmetric, ensuring that the sense strand does not contain the endogenous miRNA sequence and enabling accumulation of the anti-miRNA. The result is robust derepression of the transcripts targeted by the microRNA being “zipped,” and elevation of the corresponding protein levels.
