Exosomes are small membrane-bound vesicles secreted by most cell types. Exosomes contain various functional proteins, mRNAs and microRNAs (miRNAs) that could be used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. How we should store the samples before RNA isolation and whether those long term stored samples could be used for circulating RNA investigation because(More)
It is reported that different microRNA (miRNA) profiles can be detected in the blood of cancer patients. We investigated that whether the key serum miRNAs could discriminate patients with and without breast cancer. This study was divided into three parts: (1) miRNA marker discovery using SOLiD sequencing-based miRNA profiling on cancerous and adjacent(More)
BACKGROUND To gain insight into potential roles of isomiR spectrum and isomiRs with 3' additions in pre-eclampsia, we performed a comprehensive survey of miRNA repertoire and 3' addition events from placental samples with different degrees of pre-eclampsia by applying SOLiD sequencing platform. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Over 30% isomiRs were detected with 3'(More)
3′ addition events in miRNAs are widely detected and may contribute to miRNA stability, but little is known about details of the events in miRNA gene clusters and families. Here, we performed a comprehensive analysis of isomiR expression patterns and 3′ additions in miRNA gene clusters and families by analyzing high-throughput sequencing dataset. According(More)
The small non-coding important regulatory molecules, microRNAs (miRNAs), have been widely and deeply studied especially combining high-throughput sequencing technologies. Here, we attempted to track detailed miRNA precursor metabolic products and gain further insight into pre-miRNA processing by completely analyzing high-throughput sequencing data. Highly(More)
The aim of the present study was to obtain comprehensive microRNA (miRNA) profiles of type I [Ishikawa (ISK)] and type II (HEC-1B) human endometrial adenocarcinoma cell lines, utilizing the latest high-throughput sequencing techniques. RNA was extracted from ISK and HEC-1B cell lines. Sequencing results were obtained from a next-generation sequencing(More)
Toxins produced by bacteria and fungi are one of the most important factors which may cause food contamination. The study of detection methods with high sensitivity and throughput is significant for the protection of food safety. In the present study, we coupled microarray with emulsion PCR and developed a high throughput detection method. Thirteen(More)
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths. Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the major type of lung cancer. The aim of this study was to characterize the expression profiles of miRNAs in adenocarcinoma (AC), one major subtype of NSCLC. In this study, the miRNAs were detected in normal, adjacent, and tumor tissues by next-generation sequencing.(More)
