MicroRNA expression profiling of thyroid tumors: biological significance and diagnostic utility.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE MicroRNA (miRNA) expression is deregulated in many types of human cancers. We sought to investigate the expression patterns of miRNA in all major types of thyroid tumors, including tumors carrying distinct oncogenic mutations, and to explore the utility of miRNA profiling for the preoperative diagnosis of thyroid nodules. DESIGN miRNA expression… (More)
