3' Expression Microarrays - Service Description

Traditional microarrays interrogate the few hundred bases proximal to the 3' end of each gene. Expression at the 3' end is used to approximate expression of the entire gene, providing valuable information on global expression levels. This approach is compatible with the 3' oligo(dT)-based priming assay. This assay does not, however, discriminate between alternatively spliced transcripts that have identical 3' ends, transcripts lacking a 3' exon, non-polyadenylated transcripts or other genomic deletions. The new generation whole transcript Gene arrays do provide this type of detailed information.


It is highly recommended and strongly encouraged for you to have a consultation with us prior to commencing a study. With ever-changing technology and constant improvements and updates to both labeling methods and arrays, we want to make sure you are selecting the best approach for your studies.
