One of the limitations of microarray expression profiling is the requirement of prior sequence information, to be used for probe design.  Until recently, this has been limited mostly to that found in public databases (i.e. miRBase), these data having been gathered mainly through a combination of bioinformatics and extensive cloning experiments.  In contrast, deep sequencing […]

For profiling microRNA expression, microarrays have been the standard technology. However, the recent introduction of deep sequencing technology, enabling the simultaneous sequencing of up to millions of DNA or RNA molecules, has provided another option for profiling microRNAs. Deep sequencing utilizes massively parallel sequencing, generating millions of small RNA sequence reads from a given sample. […]

Alterations in the Expression of miRNA Genes Contribute to Pathogenesis on Broad Basis Elizabeth Lipp MicroRNA (miRNA) has a significant role in controlling developmental and cancer processes like cell proliferation, differentiation, cell cycle, apoptosis, and metastasis. This ubiquitousness and their recently revealed role as key regulators of gene expression during development has boosted their use […]

LC Sciences’ microRNA microarrays cover all species for which sequence data are available in the miRBase Sequence Database and the Plant MicroRNA Database.  Other suppliers are not covering miRs from the Plant MicroRNA database and their arrays covering the miRBase are somewhat out of date.  Since miRBase is being continually updated, a flexible microarray platform […]
