Specificity of highly potent miRNA inhibitors


miRNA inhibitors are invaluable tools for elucidating the roles of miRNAs. However, potent inhibitors may also affect other miRNAs. To understand the potential cross-reactivity of miRNA inhibitors, various miRNA inhibitor designs were systematically tested. We demonstrate that mismatches both within and outside the seed region of the miRNA interfere with inhibition. Our findings indicate that features important for natural miRNA target recognition are also important for inhibitor specificity.
Targeting Cancer Stem Cell-Related miRNAs for Prostate Cancer Therapy
SYMBIOSIS SCHOOL OF BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES, SYMBIOSIS INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY, LAVALE, PUNE - 412115

The poster focuses on the pivotal function of miRNAs in tumorigenesis by regulation of self renewal and apoptosis via cancer stem cell signalling pathways with special focus on their regulation of Epithelial to Mesenchymal transition in metastatic prostate cancer.

siRNA Screening: Development of Hit Stratification Strategies


This poster compares different approaches to hit stratification and validation after an initial screen. Standard siRNA reagents deconvoluted from a pooled set of four were compared to a pooled set of four specificity enhanced reagents. High confidence hits were similar. To explore the validity of low confidence hits, a chimeric approach was used whereby a gene-specific seed sequence was introduced into a non-targeting siRNA scaffold. This work resulted in new hit stratification strategies.
Identification of microRNA targets using microRNA modulation techniques and gene expression arrays


By examining the overlap of messages down-regulated by miRNA mimics and up-regulated by miRNA inhibitors, we robustly identify miRNA-regulated messages, many of which have canonical seed matches and some which are not identied by standard target prediction programs.
Specificity and functionality of microRNA inhibitors


Our findings indicate that features important for natural miRNA target recognition also appear to be important for inhibitor specificity. Understanding the specificity of inhibitors allows for better interpretation of inhibitor activity in endogenous systems.

Colony Picking - fully automated screening of fungi
Tecan Group Ltd.

Manual screening processes are very costly and time consuming. This ambitious project for high throughput screening (HTS) of cellulase-producing fungal strains demonstrates the high capacity and unique features of the Freedom EVO colony picking workstation. The picking of fungi is more complex than for typical bacterial colonies, and requires advanced selection criteria to be combined with complex pipetting and a tip movement that mimics the manual picking process.
Automating ELISAs on Tecan’s Freedom EVO® using Optimiser™ technology from Siloam Biosciences
Tecan Group Ltd.

One of the challenges in life sciences research today is to discover methods for running key assays more quickly, more reliably and using lower volumes of reagents and sample, but still with improved sensitivity. One area where this particularly holds true is for traditional enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs), whose application provides a useful measurement of antigens, including cytokines and a host of other biomarkers.
Molecular indexing for improved RNA-Seq analysis
Bioo Scientific

Most modern methods for nucleic acid analysis require the use of enzyme processing, such as DNA polymerase reactions, in the sample preparation or measurement steps. Although necessary, these enzymatic steps introduce errors in the form of incorrect sequence and misrepresented copy number. NEXTflex™ qRNA-Seq™ Kit from Bioo Scientific adds no additional steps to the work flow, costs no more than a conventional library preparation kit and increases the precision of downstream analysis.
