MicroRNA profiling of human pancreatic endocrine tumors

ABSTRACT: MicroRNA (miRNA) expression profiles for pancreatic endocrine tumors were examined to investigate the miRNA involvement in pancreatic carcinogenesis. miRNA microarray analysis identified statistical unique profiles, which could discriminate pancreatic cancers from noncancerous pancreas tissues.

Small noncoding microRNAs (miRNAs) can contribute to cancer development and progression and are differentially expressed in normal tissues and cancers. From a large-scale miRnome analysis on 540 samples including lung, breast, stomach, prostate, colon, and pancreatic tumors, we identified a solid cancer miRNA signature composed by a large portion of overexpressed miRNAs. Among these miRNAs are some with well characterized cancer association, such as miR-17-5p, miR-20a, miR-21, miR-92, miR-106a,  ...[more]
