Abstract: We have developed the Multiplexed Circulating microRNA assay that allows the detection of up to 68 microRNA targets per sample. The assay combines particle­based multiplexing, using patented Firefly hydrogel particles, with single­ step RT-PCR signal. Thus, the Circulating microRNA assay leverages PCR sensitivity while eliminating the need for separate reverse transcription reactions and mitigating amplification biases introduced by target­-specific qPCR. Furthermore, the ability to multiplex targets in each well…

Abstract: Any biological system strives to maintain a dynamic balance through coordinated biochemical reactions. However, even short-term environmental change, such as temperature elevation (heat shock, HS) forces the body to adapt by adjusting the basic program of gene expression. One of the mechanisms by which it is possible to achieve rapid impact on cellular metabolism is the regulation of the microRNA expression and function. Furthermore, stress may serve as an inductor of genomic instability, and, hence, lead to…
