Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has an extremely poor prognosis. To improve diagnosis and treatment, key mechanisms of deregulated molecular functions have to be identified. Using microarray analysis, the expression patterns of 5600 human genes were assessed in PDAC by comparison with the normal pancreas and chronic pancreatitis (CP). The expression(More)
Liver-specific microRNA-122 (miR-122) is involved in the replication of hepatitis C virus (HCV) and its potential as a target for antiviral intervention was recently assessed. However, the use of circulating miR-122 in the evaluation of liver function has never been reported. In the present study, changes of serum miRNA levels were first evaluated in acute(More)
A negative selection strategy was used in the present study to isolate long polyA-minus RNAs from the total transcriptome and a long non-coding RNA named Yiya was identified. Yiya is a 1.9 kb long intergenic ncRNA gene mapped to chromosome 1q41, a well-established cancer susceptibility locus. Expression profiling revealed a general and regulated expression(More)
