We want to draw your attention to our latest publication which appeared in American Journal of Physiology-Renal Physiology. We could show that laser microdissection combined with (small) RNA sequencing revealed renal microvascular compartment-specific miRNA and mRNA expression profiles. Unique miRNome and transcriptome profiles underlie microvascular heterogeneity in mouse kidney Luxen M, Zwiers PJ, Meester F et al. Am J Physiol Renal Physiol. 2023 Sep 1;325(3):F299-F316. doi: 10.1152/ajprenal.00005.2023. Epub 2023 Jul 6. TAmiRNA and Dutch company Vivomicx have combined their respective technologies of high sensitivity gene expression profiling (RT-qPCR and smallRNAseq/RNAseq) and laser microdissection to enable cell-type specific and space-resolved RNA expression analysis in complex tissues.

TAmiRNA CEO/CSO Matthias Hackl will attend the RNA Leaders conference in Boston next week to speak about how cell-free RNA biomarkers can be incorporated in pre-clinical and clinical development to inform about drug safety, drug targeting, and drug efficacy. Reach out to Matthias directly to meet with him before or after his presentation on Thursday, Sept. 7th at 4:30 pm ET and discuss our latest developments and how TAmiRNA's services can assist your business!
TAmiRNA will be a significant contributor to the inaugural joint European meeting of the ISSX and DMDG respectively focused on xenobiotics and drug metabolics. Dr. Matthias Hackl, CEO and co-founder, will take part in the discussions of Symposium 4: ‘MicroRNAs as Biomarkers of Clinical Drug-induced Organ Injury’ (Tuesday, June 13, 1000-1200 hrs). Dr. Hackl’s presentation ‘miRNA Biomarker Development: Pitfalls and Best Practices for Discovery and Validation’ will highlight the increasing scope to apply TAmiRNA’s recently developed MicroRNA Next-Generation Sequencing Discovery (miND®) technology and associated miND® spike-ins to identify novel circulating microRNA biomarkers of CNS and other organ damage, as well as comparative characterization and absolute quantitation of small RNAs associated with RNA-induced silencing complexes (RISCs). Take advantage, [...]

TAmiRNA is a key partner in the EU-funded Innovative Training Network FIDELIO, which aims to train the next generation of scientists in tackling the challenges of bone fragility in diabetic patients. The webinar "MicroRNAs: small RNAs with big potential as biomarkers and drug targets in bone diseases" is a one-hour session hosted by TAmiRNA founder and CEO Dr. Matthias Hackl. He show how microRNAs control gene expression in virtually all human cells and that miRNA expression changes during the onset and progression of (bone) disorders enabling applications as biomarkers and drug targets. He introduce the biological and methodical basics of microRNA research and discuss diagnostic and therapeutic applications of microRNAs in bone disease. [...]
We want to draw your attention to our latest review which appeared in the special issue on miRNAs in Bone Research in Bone. In this review, we summarize important molecular basics of microRNA function and release and provide recommendations for best (pre-)analytical practices and documentation standards for circulating microRNA research required for generating high quality data and ensuring reproducibility of results. We review how the genesis of bone-derived circulating microRNAs via release from osteoblasts and osteoclasts could contribute to the communication between these cells and summarize evidence from clinical research studies that have investigated the clinical utility of microRNAs as biomarkers in musculoskeletal disorders. While previous reviews have mainly focused on diagnosis of primary osteoporosis, we have [...]
We want to draw your attention to the latest publication in cooperation with TAmiRNA. The study identifies a novel and unexpected role of miR‐146a in bone homeostasis. miR‐146a increases with age and acts as an epigenetic molecular switch terminating bone accrual, leading to bone loss during aging by downregulating bone anabolic Wnt signaling. Conversely, loss of miR‐146a leads to continuous bone accrual during aging as a result of unrestricted bone anabolism and intact Wnt signaling. Therefore, miR‐146a crucially controls the temporal facet of bone homeostasis. "microRNA-146a controls age-related bone loss" Saferding V, Hofmann M, Brunner JS, et al.

The “Houska“ Prize, awarded annually by the B&C Foundation, is Austria´s biggest private award for applied research. Dr. Michael Nodine, Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology (GMI), was nominated for his work on the development of methods for nucleic acid quantification. A major issue they encountered was the lack of absolute quantification of small RNA levels, making the comparison between tissues difficult. To overcome this problem, Michael and his team, developed a set of synthetic small RNA Spike-Ins that could be added to these tissue samples. This technology allows us to accurately quantify the levels of different small RNAs that could play a role in several human diseases, ranging from cancer to cardiovascular disease. In 2019, GMI [...]
