MiR-371-3p diminished tolerance to targeted cancer treatment in cell lines and mice, while tolerant cells had enhanced levels of genes regulated by miR-371-3p.

A team of German researchers identified the four-microRNA signature and said it might inform treatment decisions.

Through the acquisition, Miroculus will be able to automate and simplify the detection of miRNAs from blood using Kapplex's digital microfluidic technology.

Genomic, transcriptomic, and methylomic data for more than 150 oligodendroglial tumors uncovered three subgroups within a previously defined low-grade glioma subtype.

The technology uses DNAzyme-based sensors, fluorescent biomarkers, and a high-throughput particle counter to rapid identify rare targets in complex raw samples.
