Irene K. Oglesby, Paul J. McKiernan
Bronchial epithelial cells represent an invaluable tool to elucidate molecular signaling regulation in cystic fibrosis (CF). CF is a lethal genetic condition characterized by chronic inflammation in which bronchial epithelial cells play a pivotal role. Here we describe their use in analysis of microRNA (miRNA) and their target genes following a two-step RT-PCR miRNA profiling method in bronchial cell specimens from CF and control individuals where 667 human miRNA were examined. We also describe an approach to experimental modulation of these miRNA in vitro.
