Abstract [en]

Background: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are approximately 22 nucleotide long, non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression by binding to the 3'-untranslated region of target mRNAs and also a variety of cellular processes. It has recently been established that dysregulation of miRNA expression can be detected in the majority of human cancers. A variety of high-throughput screening methods has been developed to identify dysregulated miRNA species in tumours. For retrospective clinical studies formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue is the most widely used material.

Materials and methods: The miRNA expression profiles of freshly frozen (CRYO) and FFPE tissues of seven tonsil and four liver samples were compared, using a qPCR-based assay, profiling 157 miRNA species.

Results: The significance of miRNA-profiles was barely influenced by FFPE treatment in both tissues and the variance induced by FFPE treatment was much smaller than the variance caused by biologically based differential expression.

Conclusion: FFPE material is well suited for miRNA profiling.
