Study Description

MicroRNAs (miRs) have been recognized as promising biomarkers. It is unknown to what extent tumor-derived miRs aredifferentially expressed between primary colorectal cancers (pCRCs) and metastatic lesions, and to what extent the expressionprofiles of tumor tissue differ from the surrounding normal tissue. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) of 220 fresh-frozen samples,including paired primary and metastatic tumor tissue and non-tumorous tissue from 38 patients, revealed expression of 2245known unique mature miRs and 515 novel candidate miRs. Unsupervised clustering of miR expression profiles of pCRC tissue withpaired metastases did not separate the two entities, whereas unsupervised clustering of miR expression profiles of pCRC withnormal colorectal mucosa demonstrated complete separation of the tumor samples from their paired normal mucosa. Twohundred and twenty-two miRs differentiated both pCRC and metastases from normal tissue samples (false discovery rate (FDR)o0.05). The highest expressed tumor-specific miRs were miR-21 and miR-92a, both previously described to be involved in CRC ... (Show More)
