Table 1 miRNA yield from small RNA-enriched fractions according to tissue group

From: Identification of suitable endogenous control genes for microRNA gene expression analysis in human breast cancer

Tissue group\Percentage of miRNA in small RNA-enriched fraction 1–25% 26–50% 51–75% 76–100%
MF 3 4 3 3
BM 1 1 2 3
VBM 1 5 0 0
BEN 1 2 2 0
Normal 0 1 4 0
Total 6 13 11 6
  1. Extracted RNA, enriched for small RNA, was analysed using the Agilent Small RNA Assay. The percentage of miRNA (10–35 nt) in each small RNA-enriched sample (< 200 nt) was determined.
  2. Abbreviations: MF = metastases free, BM = bone metastases, VBM = visceral and bone metstases, BEN = benign.
