Summary of "Using miRNAs and circRNAs to estimate PMI in advanced stage."

In our previous study, we evaluated the stability of multi-RNA markers in heart, liver and skeletal muscle tissues of mice within 8 days after death and concluded that microRNAs (miRNAs) and circular (circRNAs) were more stable as reference genes in dead bodies than other kinds of RNAs. Based on their tissue-specific expression, we obtained reference genes for three kinds of tissues: miR-122, miR-133a and 18S in heart tissues; LC-Ogdh, circ-AFF1 and miR-122 in liver tissues; and miR-133a, circ-AFF1 in skeletal muscle tissues. For the estimation of post mortem interval (PMI), we also selected suitable biomarkers, which exhibited the best correlation coefficient with PMI. In our stability analysis of multi-RNA markers, Gapdh, Rps18, U6 and β-actin were unstable and selected as candidate target biomarkers. By analyzing the correlation between the expression levels of candidate target biomarkers and PMI, we obtained suitable target biomarkers for the three kinds of tissues, respectively. Finally, we established mathematical models of PMI estimation using the above selected reference genes and target biomarkers. The low estimated error in the validated samples demonstrated that PMI in advanced stage could be accurately predicted by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) through systematically selected effective reference genes and target biomarkers. Besides, combining the estimated results of various tissues and multi-biomarkers could improve the accuracy of PMI estimation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Small double-stranded, non-protein coding RNAs, 21-25 nucleotides in length generated from single-stranded microRNA gene transcripts by the same RIBONUCLEASE III, Dicer, that produces small interfering RNAs (RNA, SMALL INTERFERING). They become part of the RNA-INDUCED SILENCING COMPLEX and repress the translation (TRANSLATION, GENETIC) of target RNA by binding to homologous 3'UTR region as an imperfect match. The small temporal RNAs (stRNAs), let-7 and lin-4, from C. elegans, are the first 2 miRNAs discovered, and are from a class of miRNAs involved in developmental timing.

The stage in the first meiotic prophase, following ZYGOTENE STAGE, when CROSSING OVER between homologous CHROMOSOMES begins.

The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).

The process of TOOTH formation. It is divided into several stages including: the dental lamina stage, the bud stage, the cap stage, and the bell stage. Odontogenesis includes the production of tooth enamel (AMELOGENESIS), dentin (DENTINOGENESIS), and dental cementum (CEMENTOGENESIS).

A chronic communicable infection which is a principal or polar form of LEPROSY. This disorder is caused by MYCOBACTERIUM LEPRAE and produces diffuse granulomatous skin lesions in the form of nodules, macules, or papules. The peripheral nerves are involved symmetrically and neural sequelae occur in the advanced stage.
