Globin mRNA and rRNA are highly abundant in blood samples, and their efficient and specific removal is desirable in order to reveal the biological significance of less abundant transcripts.
The NEBNext® Globin & rRNA Depletion Kit (Human/Mouse/Rat) employs the NEBNext RNase H-based RNA depletion workflow to deplete globin mRNA, cytoplasmic rRNA and mitochondrial rRNA with human, mouse and rat samples, and is effective with intact and degraded RNA.
Efficient, specific depletion of rRNA and globin mRNA (adult, fetal and embryonic)
Suitable for low-quality or high-quality RNA
Compatible with a broad range of input amounts: 10 ng - 1 μg
Optional integration with poly(A) mRNA isolation workflows for removal of globin RNAs, rRNAs, and noncoding RNAs
Fast workflow: 2 hours, with less than 10 minutes hands-on time
The great majority of RNA in blood samples is comprised of cytoplasmic and mitochondrial ribosomal RNAs (rRNA) and globin mRNA. These highly abundant RNA species can conceal the biological significance of less abundant transcripts, and so their efficient and specific removal is desirable.
The NEBNext® Globin & rRNA Depletion Kit (Human/Mouse/Rat) employs the NEBNext RNase H-based RNA depletion workflow to deplete adult, embryonic and fetal globin mRNA (HBA1/2, HBB, HBD, HBM, HBG1/2, HBE1, HBQ1 and HBZ), cytoplasmic rRNA (5S, 5.8S, 18S, 28S, ITS and ETS) and mitochondrial rRNA (12S and 16S).
The kit is effective with human, mouse and rat total RNA preparations, both intact and degraded. The resulting depleted RNA is suitable for RNA-seq, random-primed cDNA synthesis, or other downstream RNA analysis.
This kit can also be used following poly(A) mRNA enrichment (e.g., using the NEBNext poly(A) mRNA Magnetic Isolation Module NEB #E7490), so that the final depleted RNA contains only mRNA of interest and no non-coding RNA.
