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. [...]

Circulating miRNAs in bone health and 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 [...]

microRNA-146a controls age-related bone loss

2020-11-24T09:00:05+01:00November 24th, 2020|aging, biomarker, biomarkers, bone diseases, bone fracture risk assessment, microRNAs, microstructure, osteoporosis, Personalized medicine|0 Comments

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.

We want to draw your attention to the latest publication with our partner Vivomicx. Together we have developed a combination of laser microdissection (LMD) and high quality qPCR, which enables the quantitative analysis of cell-type specific RNA expression in complex tissues. Using this protocol TAmiRNA & Vivomicx have been able to demonstrate: the profound difference of RNA expression between whole tumor and subsets of cells within the tumor and the large heterogeneity in RNA expression between colorectal* tumor compartments such as tumor, stroma and tumor endothelial cells. * Note: the technology can be utilized for almost any tissue sample. Our new approch allows to: Discover differential expression patterns between “healthy” and “diseased” tissues on the cellular level; [...]
