The world of RNA modifications is a fascinating and ever-expanding realm, with scientists having identified over 170+ distinct RNA modifications in various cellular ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs). These modifications go beyond the traditional four RNA residues, revealing a complex tapestry of chemical alterations that contribute to the intricate regulation of cellular processes. Among these, methylation modifications take center stage, constituting more than 60% of all known RNA chemical modifications.

  • Functional Enrichment Analysis: Gain insights into the biological significance of methylated RNA molecules.
  • Visualization: We provide interactive visualizations to facilitate data interpretation.

Sample Requirements

Sample Starting Volume:can be reduced to 10-20 μ, with a minimum of 1 μg of total RNA. You are encouraged to consult with our technical team to discuss specific requirements and ensure compatibility with their samples.

Sample Types:is compatible with a diverse range of sample types, including animals, plants, cells, and tissues.

Please make sure that the RNA is not significantly degraded.

Sample storage: RNA can be dissolved in ethanol or RNA-free ultra-pure water and stored at -80°C. RNA should avoid repeated freezing and thawing.

Shipping Method: When shipping RNA samples, the RNA sample is stored in a 1.5 mL Eppendorf tube, sealed with sealing film. Shipments are generally recommended to contain 5-10 pounds of dry ice per 24 hours.
