Custom AIR™ Adenylated Linkers

For small RNA-seq library prep

  • Ideal for next-generation sequencing, miRNA cloning and miRNA sequencing
  • 3’ end blocks prevent self-ligation
  • Adenylated 5' end reacts with T4 RNL2 Ligase, truncated
  • Phosphorothioate and other modifications available
  • Predesigned linkers are also available
  • You can create your own miRNA barcodes

Design your own miRNA cloning linkers.

Bioo Scientific’s AIR™ Adenylated Linkers are 5’adenylated oligos with 3’end blocks, which are ready for use in NGS or miRNA cloning. Custom adaptors can be designed for use with any NGS platform.

AIR™ Adenylated Linkers are activated adenylated oligos that preclude the need for ATP in RNA Ligase 2 (RNL2) reactions. This allows for specific and clean ligations.
