Urea-PAGE pattern of purifi ed RNA by using microRNA Isolation Kit, Mouse Ago2 (Wako catalog #292-67301). The purifi ed microRNA fractions from cultured rodent cell lines(P388D1, CHO-K1, PC-12) were detected by silver stain. Cell number of each cell line is approximately 5 x 106. The applied volume per lane is half of isolated sample by this kit.

Cloning effi ciency of microRNA from P388D1 cell lysate. The presence ratio of microRNA was more than 90%. Others indicated cDNAs which were listed in miRBase of other organism species. Unknowns indicated cDNAs which were found in genome sequence, but not listed in miRBase. The contents of cloned microRNA are indicated on Table 1.
[Procedure of microRNA cloning]
1) The microRNA fraction was prepared by microRNA Isolation Kit, Mouse Ago2.
2) The cDNA encoding microRNA was synthesized by microRNA Cloning Kit Wako and inserted it into T-vector.
3) The 96 transformants of E. coli were randomly selected from selection LB agar medium.
4) Inserted cDNA sequences were determined by DNA sequencer and colleted sequences by using data base of Sanger miRBase.
