Why

microRNA?

miRNAs are small endogenous non-coding RNAs of ~17-25 nucleotides in length conserved across various species. They are essential components of gene regulatory networks and regulate gene expression post-transcriptionally by repressing translation or by triggering the degradation of multiple-target mRNAs.

miRNAs are involved in all crucial physiological processes including development, proliferation and differentiation, metabolism, homeostasis and host-viral interactions. Unsurprisingly, their aberrant expression has been implicated in a multitude of diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular, metabolic, neurodegenerative and infectious diseases.

miRNAs are secreted into circulation, exist stably and readily detected in various biofluids including serum, plasma, urine, saliva, tears and aqueous and vitreous humor.

miRNAs are resistant to the effects of freeze-thaw cycles, large variations in pH and prolonged exposure to room temperature. All these abovementioned characteristics make them promising liquid biopsy biomarkers.

The Problem

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are notoriously difficult to quantify accurately due to their high degree of homology and small size. Their low abundance in circulation further aggravates this difficulty. Interestingly, increasing evidence shows that low abundant miRNA targets in biofluids carry diagnostic value for early detection of diseases.

Hence, there is mounting demand for improved detection and quantification methods, especially since their promise as novel diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers for multiple human diseases is just being realized.

The small size of microRNAs makes detection extremely difficult.  Less than 100 miRNAs are robustly detected in biofluids.
