Neuware - MicroRNAs (miRNAs), endogenous noncoding regulatory mRNAs of - nucleotides, have rapidly emerged as the central players in gene expression regulation. Owing to their ever-increasing implications in the control of various biological and pathological processes, miRNAs have now been considered novel biomarkers of various human diseases including, cancer, viral disease, cardiov- cular disorders, metabolic disturbances, etc. Particular expression pro les have been associated with particular pathological states. Expression pro ling of miR- NAs have therefore become extremely important not only for fundamentalists but also for clinicians. However, the methodologies used for detecting protein-coding mRNAs cannot be directly applied to miRNAs because of their small size. Over the past years, researchers have made great efforts to developing techniques suitable for miRNA detection and quanti cation; a wide spectrum of creative and inno- tive techniques (more than 30 different methods) have been invented and validated. It has come to the time now to summarize these methods and present them in an orderly manner for better understanding and utilization of these methods to miRNA research and applications. In particular, the development of methods for quantifying circulating miRNAs opens up a fascinating opportunity for realizing miRNA as diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers of human disease. A book on this subject may help boosting up the passion of researchers to further improve the existing techniques and develop more new methods to t to new application needs. These considerations prompted us and urged us to undertake the work: writing a book focusing on miRNA expression detection methods. 387 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783642049279
Synopsis: This book provides comprehensive descriptions of the innovative strategies and methodologies for detecting miRNA expression, their application in miRNA research and their potential as tools for clinical diagnosis and prognosis. It begins with the introduction of the overall concept and strategies of miRNA expression detection methods emphasizing the need of a wide variety of these methods to suit specific requirements for research and clinical examination in laboratories. In the following, each single chapter focuses on an independent, unique method of miRNA detection and is divided into five subsections: summary, introduction, protocol (including materials, instrument, reagent, and procedure), application and limitation, and reference. The development of the technique, the ideas behind it and the mechanisms underlying the method are given in the introduction of each chapter. The step-by-step protocols are detailed in the protocol section. Then, the applications and limitations of the methods are discussed. Finally, the literature citations are listed in reference section. Schematic diagrams are included where needed and appropriate for better illustrating the principle of the methodologies. In addition, flowcharts are also provided to outline the protocols for each of the miRNA expression detection methods.This book is aimed to target both researchers involved in miRNA research of any fields in universities and research institutions and medical practitioners who are interested in developing or utilizing miRNA profiling as a complementary and an alternative strategy for clinical diagnosis of human disease.
