RNA FISH for long non-coding RNA
Stellaris® RNA FISH allows for visualization and quantification of single RNA transcripts, which offers the unique ability to observe gene expression in intact tissue or fixed cells
Detection, Localization, & Quantification of Long Non-coding RNA
Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) targets present unique challenges for researchers due to the lack of protein products and, typically, the existence of multiple splice variants. LGC Biosearch Technologies offers carefully designed probe sets for the detection of select lncRNA targets, including MALAT1, the NEAT1 5’ segment, the NEAT1 Middle Segment, and XIST seen on the right. Localization of lncRNA with these probe sets shows clear compartmentalization of NEAT1 to nuclear paraspeckles, and MALAT1 to nuclear speckles.

Custom Stellaris Probe Set Design
Stellaris FISH probes possessing optimal binding properties for your target lncRNA sequence by using LGC Biosearch’s free, web-based probe designer: https://www.biosearchtech.com/stellaris-designer. A custom Stellaris FISH probe set is a blend of up to 48 oligos each labeled with a single fluorophore. This probe stock is sufficient to provide 200 through 2000 hybridizations depending on the optimal working dilution for each target. Stellaris FISH probes arrive lyophilized and ready to use.
|Fluorophore||EX (nm)||EM (nm)|
|CAL Fluor Orange 560||538||559|
|CAL Fluor Red 590||569||591|
|CAL Fluor Red 610||590||610|
|CAL Fluor Red 635||618||637|
What is Stellaris RNA FISH?
Stellaris FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridization) is an RNA visualization method that allows simultaneous detection, localization, and quantification of individual RNA molecules, including long non-coding RNA (lncRNA), at the sub-cellular level in fixed samples using widefield fluorescence microscopy. A set of Stellaris FISH probes comprises multiple oligonucleotides with different sequences, each with a fluorescent label that collectively bind along the same target transcript to produce a punctate signal.
The Stellaris FISH technology is versatile toward many sample types and applications. Scientists may even label multiple Stellaris FISH probe sets with various dyes, to allow for multiplex detection of different RNA targets simultaneously. Finally, scientists can address the stochastic nature of gene expression and visualize RNA through direct detection without isolation, purification, and amplification.
