Project description:We profiled miRNA expression in the plasma from healthy subjects and patients with unstable angina pectoris to obtain differentially expressed plasma miRNAs. We randomly selected 25 samples from each group and combined into a sample pool. In this way we obtained 7 and 6 sample pools in control group and case group, respectively. miRNA levels in the plasma were detected with miRCURY LNATM microRNA Array, 6th gen -hsa, mmu & rno. Overall design: 175 healthy subjects and 150 patients with unstable angina pectoris were enrolled in this study. We obtained 13 sample pools through randomly selected mixture of 25 plasma samples from each group into a sample pool.Total RNA was isolated from 0.2 mL pooled plasma sample for microarray detection.
Project description:Both disseminated tumor cells and noncancerous host cells contributed to cancer progression cooperatively in bone marrow. Bone marrow samples were obtained from 4 gastric cancer patients, and were separated into 3 fractions (CD45 positive, CD45 negative/EpCAM positive, and CD14 positive fractions) by the automagnetic-activated cell separation (AutoMACS) system using CD45, EpCAM, and CD14 microbeads (Miltenyi Biotec, Germany). microRNA expression profiles in each fractions were evaluated in order to identify candidate prognostic markers for gastric cancer patients. In 4 patients with gastric cancer, bone marrow samples (40 mL) were obtained from iliac bones. Nucleated cells were collected by gradient centrifugation using Ficoll-Paque PREMIUM (GE Healthcare Life Science, USA) and Leucosep (Greiner Bio-One, Germany) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Next, we separated bone marrow cells into 3 fractions using MACS: CD45 positive (CD45+), CD45 negative/EpCAM positive (CD45-/EpCAM+), and CD14 positive (CD14+). microRNA expression levels of whole bone marrow cells and each fractions were measured by the miRCURY™ LNA array microarray (6th gen-hsa, mmu & rno#208402, Exiqon, Vedbaek, Denmark). The miRCURY™ LNA array microarray slides were scanned using the Agilent G2505C Microarray Scanner System (Agilent Technologies, Inc., USA) and the data analysis was carried out using the Feature Extraction 10.7.3.1 (Agilent Technologies, Inc., USA).

Project description:Noncoding RNAs, especially microRNAs (miRNAs) have been implicated in the regulation of neuronal functions, such as learning, cognition and memory formation. However, the particular miRNAs involved in drug-induced behavioral plasticity are largely unknown. Here we report a novel regulator, miR-218, that inhibits heroin-induced behavioral plasticity. Network propagation-based method revealed several miRNAs that play key roles in drug-addiction, among which, miR-218 was decreased in nucleus accumbens (NAc) after chronic exposure to heroin. Lentiviral overexpression of miR-218 in NAc could inhibit heroin-induced reinforcement in both conditioning place preference (CPP) test and heroin self-administration (SA) experiment. Luciferase activity assay indicated miR-218 could regulate neuroplasticity related genes and directly target Mecp2 3’UTR. Consistently, Mecp2-/y mice exhibited reduced heroin seeking behavior in CPP test. These data reveal a functional role of miR-218 and its target, Mecp2, in the regulation of heroin-induced behavioral plasticity. Overall design: Microarray screening was carried out to identify miRNAs responsive to chronic administration of heroin. Arrays used were miRCURY LNA microRNA Array, v.11.0 - hsa, mmu & rno.
Project description:We investigated the expression profiles of microRNAs (miRNA) in 27 renal cell carcinoma (RCC) FFPE tissues (3 chRCC, 5 papRCC and 18 ccRCC), 4 upper urinary tract-urothelial cell carcinomas of the renal pelvis-ureter (UUT-UCCs) and 20 normal kidneys by using the miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Array, 6th gen (Exiqon, Woburn MA), containing capture probes that target all miRNAs for all species registered in the miRBASE version 16.0. Real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) using appropriate endogenous controls was performed in order to validate the microarray results of the 27 most differentially expressed (DE) miRNAs. We identified 434 miRNAs that were significantly deregulated in all kidney tumours compared to the normal tissues. A total of 126 miRNAs (29%) had increased expression while 303 (69.8%) had decreased expression in RCC. Out of the 434 DE miRNAs, we detected 94 co-up-regulated and 218 co-down-regulated microRNAs among chRCC, papRCC and ccRCC. Of these, 89 and 203 were co-up- and co-down-regulated between RCCs and UUT-UCCs, respectively. We detected 11, 44 and 24 up-regulated miRNAs, which were specific for ccRCC, chRCC and papRCC, respectively. Moreover, 19, 18 and 8 miRNAs were uniquelly down-regulated in ccRCC, chRCC and papRCC, respectively. We also detected 89 and 203 co-up- and co-down-regulated miRNAs between kidney cancer and UUT-UCCs. Five miRNAs were up-regulated specifically in renal tumours and 49 in UUT-UCCs, whereas 15 miRNAs were down-regulated specifically in renal tumours and 89 in UUT-UCCs, respectively. Our data validicate that expression of miRNAs tends to be down-regulated renal cell carcinomas compared with normal kidney. We used 18 ccRCC, 3 chRCC, 5 papRCC, 4 UUT-UCC, 1 undifferentiated carcinoma and 19 normal tissue samples for miRNA profiling. Total RNA (0.5 µg) from each sample and reference was labeled with Hy3™ fluorescent label, using the miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Hi-Power Labeling Kit (Exiqon, Woburn MA). The Hy3™-labeled samples were hybridized to the miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Array, 6th gen (Exiqon, Woburn MA), using an Agilent hybridization SureHyb chamber and gasket slide kits. After hybridization, the microarray slides were scanned at 10 μm using the High-Resolution Microarray Scanner (Agilent Technologies) and stored in an ozone free environment. The image analysis was carried out using the ImaGene 8.0 software (BioDiscovery, Inc., USA). Raw microarray data were filtered, background corrected and quantile normalizated. Normalized data were further extracted, pre-processed and sorted with Microsoft Excel®. MicroRNAs were considered to be significantly differentially expressed if they obtained a p-value<0.05 and a FDR≤0.05.
Project description:The study aimed to identify miRNAs expression profiles associated with growth and regression of dominant-size follicles in bovine. Follicles were collected from abattoir ovaries and their status (healthy/atretic) was assessed by measuring steroid levels and aromatase expression. Total RNA was isolated from whole follicles at different developmental stages. An heterologous microarray (Exiqon, Denmark) approach followed by RT-qPCR validation (Qiagen, UK) was used to identify and compare miRNA profiles between large healthy follicles (diameter, 13–16 mm, n=6) and each of small (4–8 mm, n=6 pools of follicles) and large atretic folllicles (13-16 mm, n=6). RNA from the above groups was hybridized to the miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Hi-Power Labeling Kit,Hy3™/Hy5™ (Exiqon) and hybridized on the miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Array (6th gen). A total of 17 and 57 microRNAs were differentially expressed (> 2 fold, adj. P-value < 0.05) between Large Healthy and each of Small and Large Atretic follicles, respectively, a fraction of which corresponded to registered bovine miRNA sequences. A subset of 5 bovine miRNAs (miR-144, miR-202,vmiR-451, miR-652, miR-873) were confirmed by qPCR to be upregulated in Large Healthy follicles, were enriched in mural granulosa cells and their predicted targets mapped to genes involved in follicular cell proliferation and differentiation, suggesting an involvemet of this subset of microRNAs in ovarian follicle development. Six biological replicates per developmental stage (total of 18 samples) were used in a double dye microRNA microarray experiment. Samples were distributed among slides so that each experimental group was represented at least once in each slide. For each gene, mean normalized intensities (n= 6 biological replicates/group) were compared between follicle stages (SF vs LHF and LHF vs LAF).
