Global microRNA profiling of small intestine neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) and establishment of a method to study serum microRNA expression from the same tumors Abstract #585

Introduction: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important post-transcriptional regulatorsin biological processes and function either as tumor suppressors or oncogenes.
Aim(s): To provide exclusive miRNAs profile and identify serum miRNA expression from SI-NET patients’ serum.
Materials and methods: We used frozen SI-NET specimens to perform Affymetrix miRNA-arrays. QRT-PCR analysis validated our in silico results. Moreover, human NET cells and serum samples were involved in the study.

#200 Genome-Wide MicroRNA Expression in Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumors (“Midgut carcinoids”): Upregulation of miRNA-182, miRNA-183 and Downregulation of miRNA-215
Introduction: MicroRNAs (miRs) may regulate cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis and function as tumor suppressors or oncogenes. MiR expression is not characterized in neuroendocrine midgut carcinoids.

#355 MicroRNA Signatures as Novel Biomarkers in Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Small intestine (SI) neuroendocrine tumors (NET) arise from serotonin-producing intraepithelial cells in the SI referred to as enterochromafin cells. The detection of SI-NETs is often concomitant with the appearance of hepatic metastasis thus most patients with SI-NET have metastases at initial presentation. MicroRNAs (miRs) are post-transcriptional key regulators in tumorigenesis which regulate expression of other genes. Little evidence of miR expression or deregulation in SI-NETs has been reported.

#424 Role of MicroRNAs in Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) arise from enterochromaffin cells, which belong to the endocrine system. MicroRNAs (miRs) are post-transcriptional regulators. They control multiple biological processes often functioning either as tumor suppressor genes or oncogenes.
