MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in carcinogenesis, but the global miRNA expression profile in gastric stromal tumor tissues remains unclear. This study was to examine the miRNA expression profile in gastric stromal tumor tissues and explore the function of dysregulated miRNAs by performing gene ontology (GO) and pathway enrichment analysis. Total RNA was extracted and purified from 3 pairs of frozen gastric stromal tumor tissues and the adjacent non-tumor tissues by using mirVana™ miRNA isolation kit...

BACKGROUND: Microvesicles (MVs) packaged with microribonucleic acids (miRNAs) have been shown to be released mainly from tumor cells. However, little information is known for miRNAs from MVs in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Hence, we explored the MVs' miRNAs expression profiles in HCC. METHODS: MVs were collected from peripheral blood of HCC, chronic hepatitis B (CHB) and normal controls. miRNA from MVs were labeled and analyzed by Agilent miRNA microarry. Bioinformatics tools were used to analyze function of the differentially expressed MVs' miRNAs...

Infused (transplanted) green fluorescent protein (GFP)-positive bone marrow cells (BMCs) migrated into the peri-portal regions of the cirrhotic mouse liver induced continuous CCl4 injection without irradiation (without bone marrow ablation). The infused GFP-positive BMCs differentiated into hepatoblasts detected with Liv2-antibody and then differentiated into albumin-producing hepatocytes. The differentiation "niche" induced by persistent liver damage due to continuous CCl4 injection seems to be an essential factor...

A novel DNA microarrying platform based on oxygen plasma activation of polycarbonate surface of compact disks (DVD) is presented. Carboxylic acid groups are generated in few seconds on polycarbonate in an efficient, fast, and clean way. Following this surface activation strategy, amino-modified oligonucleotide probes were covalently attached, reaching an immobilization density of 2 pmol cm(-2). Atomic force microscopy imaging revealed the nondestructive character of this treatment when applied for short times, allowing for disk scanning in standard DVD drives...

BACKGROUND: Down syndrome (DS; trisomy 21) is the most common genetic cause of mental retardation in the human population and key molecular networks dysregulated in DS are still unknown. Many different experimental techniques have been applied to analyse the effects of dosage imbalance at the molecular and phenotypical level, however, currently no integrative approach exists that attempts to extract the common information. RESULTS: We have performed a statistical meta-analysis from 45 heterogeneous publicly available DS data sets in order to identify consistent dosage effects from these studies...

BACKGROUND: Microarray technology has become a widely used tool in the biological sciences. Over the past decade, the number of users has grown exponentially, and with the number of applications and secondary data analyses rapidly increasing, we expect this rate to continue. Various initiatives such as the External RNA Control Consortium (ERCC) and the MicroArray Quality Control (MAQC) project have explored ways to provide standards for the technology. For microarrays to become generally accepted as a reliable technology, statistical methods for assessing quality will be an indispensable component; however, there remains a lack of consensus in both defining and measuring microarray quality...

In developing an integrated framework for translational bioinformatics, we consider bioimaging in the NIH Roadmap that exploits high-resolution genomic imaging for clinical applications to the diagnosis and treatment of genetic disorders/diseases. On one hand, we develop new image processing techniques, while on the other, we use the fusion of several well known ontological standards - Gene Ontology (GO), Clinical Bioinformatics Ontology (CBO), Foundational Model of Anatomy (FMA) and Microarry Gene Expression Data Ontology (MGED) in this framework...

The aim of this study was to analyse various gene expression profiles of muscle tissue during normoxia, ischaemia and after reperfusion in human muscle free flaps, to gain an understanding of the occurring regulatory, inflammatory and apoptotic processes on a cellular and molecular basis. Eleven Caucasian patients with soft tissue defects needing coverage with microsurgical free muscle flaps were included in this study. In all patients, the muscle samples were taken from free myocutaneous flaps. The first sample was taken before induction of ischaemia in normoxia (I), another one after ischaemia (II), and the last one was taken after reperfusion (III)...

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) cells at relapse are frequently more resistant to treatment than primary clones and this may be caused by further genetic changes in the ALL cells at relapse. These acquired genomic abnormalities have not been fully characterized. To examine the additional genomic alterations of ALL at relapse, we performed single nucleotide polymorphism genomic microarry (SNP-chip) analysis on 14 ALL bone marrow samples at initial diagnosis, remission and relapse. Only two cases at initial diagnosis had a normal appearing genome by SNP-chip...
