VCS Seminar: Dr. Katrina Stewart

VCS Seminar: MicroRNA: Potential Role in Disease Susceptibility, Disease Diagnosis and Disease Prognosis: Dr. Katrina Stewart; January 23rd, 2015

The field of microRNA research is relatively new and showing great promise in the pursuit of biomarkers for disease and disease susceptibility. MicroRNAs are short non-coding regulatory RNAs that mediate post-transcriptional gene regulation by binding to and repressing specific messenger RNA targets. Additionally microRNAs are relatively stable molecules that are easily quantified allowing measurement under both health and disease conditions. Specific microRNA have been identified as sensitive, non-invasive diagnostic tools for early disease detection in human malignancies. Some have a possible role contributing to the innate defense against infectious agents by negatively regulating their replication.

Identification of microRNA in companion animals to date is limited but has the potential to provide a useful and sensitive tool for disease diagnosis and prognosis and/or progression.
