Figure 2. TaqMan-qPCR analysis of differentially expressed miRNA during LA onset. Four miRNAs are differentially expressed during LA onset including hsa-miR-1972, hsa-miR-26b-5p, hsa-miR-3141, and hsa-miR-623. They were selected from miRNA microarray analysis data and identified in independent type I LA samples using ABI TaqMan probe-based qPCR technology. The study showed significant down-regulation of hsa-miR-1972, hsa-miR-26b-5p, and hsa-miR-3141 in independent subjects with type I LA (n=12) compared with controls (n=12), *P < 0.05, *P < 0.01.
