Summary of "Gene expression analysis of MMPs in women with preeclampsia using cell-free fetal RNA in maternal plasma."

Nucleic acids released from the placenta into the mother's blood circulation system provide a valuable source of potential biomarkers for early detection of pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia (PE). PE affects nearly 5-10% of pregnancies worldwide and is a major contributor to the maternal and neonatal mortality and morbidity. It is known that altered placental expression of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) may cause shallow cytotrophoblastic invasion and ultimately lead to preeclampsia. The present study aimed to evaluate pattern of placental/fetal expression of the MMP family (MMP-2, MMP-9, MMP-14, MMP-15 and MMP-26) in preeclamptic women and compare it to normal pregnancies, using cell free fetal RNA (cff-RNA).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

MOLECULAR BIOLOGY techniques used in the diagnosis of disease. Included are such techniques as IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION of chromosomes for CYTOGENETIC ANALYSIS; OLIGONUCLEOTIDE ARRAY SEQUENCE ANALYSIS of gene expression patterns in disease states; identification of pathogenic organisms by analysis of species specific DNA sequences; and detection of mutations with POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION.

The expression of a gene in an abnormal place, or at an abnormal time in an organism. Ectopic Gene Expression is often induced artificially by genetic techniques.

A form of gene interaction whereby the expression of one gene interferes with or masks the expression of a different gene or genes. Genes whose expression interferes with or masks the effects of other genes are said to be epistatic to the effected genes. Genes whose expression is affected (blocked or masked) are hypostatic to the interfering genes.

Hybridization of a nucleic acid sample to a very large set of oligonucleotide probes, which are attached to a solid support, to determine sequence or to detect variations in a gene sequence or expression or for gene mapping.

Techniques used to add in exogenous gene sequence such as mutated genes; REPORTER GENES, to study mechanisms of gene expression; or regulatory control sequences, to study effects of temporal changes to GENE EXPRESSION.
