May 29, 2012, Hangzhou, China – In a new study published online in Nature Communications, researchers from Sichuan Agricultural University and LC Sciences report the miRNAome in porcine adipose and muscle tissues. The report provides a valuable epigenomic source for obesity prediction and prevention and furthers the development of pig as a model organism for human obesity research1. Scientists now know that the genetic code alone isn’t responsible for
Myocardial infarction (MI) is a leading cause of death worldwide. Because endogenous cardiac repair mechanisms are not sufficient for meaningful tissue regeneration, MI results in loss of cardiac tissue and detrimental remodeling events. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, noncoding RNAs that regulate gene expression in a sequence dependent manner. Researchers at miRagen Therapeutics set out to examine whether miRNAs are involved in ischemia-reperfusion injury of the porcine heart. They used

These studies, by leading researchers in the field, represent significant steps toward realizing these small regulatory RNA’s potential as biomarkers and therapeutic targets. MiRNAs have proven to be an extremely
Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 11, 2011 - Taking advantage of its flexible µParaflo® Chip Technology, Houston based LC Sciences today announced immediate availability of probe content from miRBase 17 for their microRNA (miRNA) microarray customers. This announcement comes just a few days after the announcement of the update to version 17 at miRBase.org. The public miRBase sequence database serves as the primary probe
From - BioHouston.org Houston (August 19, 2010) Researchers from LC Sciences LLC and a collaboration of Universities1 have established a porcine microRNAome, a complete catalog of all microRNAs expressed in the species Sus scrofa2. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small regulatory RNA molecules known to control a wide array of cellular functions such as growth and development and whose dysregulation has been associated with disease. The findings of this study lay the groundwork for
Houston, TX – October 15, 2009 – Taking full advantage of its flexible µParaflo® Biochip Technology, Houston based LC Sciences today announced immediate availability of probe content from the newly created Plant MicroRNA Database (PMRD) for their microRNA (miRNA) microarray customers. This announcement comes immediately following a publication in Nucleic Acids Research introducing the public database1. The PMRD integrates available plant miRNA data deposited in other public databases, gleaned from the recent literature, and data generated by the database organizers.
Houston, TX – September 4, 2009 – LC Sciences announced today the publication of the 100th peer-reviewed study by one of its customers using the company’s microarray service for analyzing microRNA (miRNA) expression profiles and for discovery of novel small RNAs. These studies, by leading researchers in the field, contribute to a fast growing body of knowledge defining this recently discovered class of regulatory RNAs. To date, miRNAs have proven to be extremely important part of the gene expression
