Profile of MicroRNA Expression in Brain Tumors of Different Malignancy

The expression profiles of 10 mature microRNA (7, 10a, 17, 20a, 21, 23a, 26a, 137, 222) in biopsy specimens of gliomas of different malignancy were studied by the real time PCR with SYBR Green I fluorescent stain. The expression of microRNA-21 increased significantly, while that of microRNA-137 decreased, depending on the tumor malignancy. The expression of… CONTINUE READING
