Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The aim of this study was to investigate the pattern of microRNA (miRNA) expression in CD19+ and CD4+ cells from asymptomatic patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

METHODS:

A screening of the expression of 377 miRNAs was performed in human CD4+ and CD19+ cells isolated from the peripheral blood by using a TaqMan Human MicroRNA Array. Validation of differential expression pattern of those was performed using TaqMan assays in these cell populations obtained from a larger cohort of patients and controls.

RESULTS:

According to the screening assays, three miRNAs were differentially expressed (p value <0.1) in cell populations from both patients and controls: hsa-miR-143, hsa-miR-224 and hsa-miR-576-5p for CD4+ cells, and hsa-miR-10a, hsa-miR-31 and hsa-miR-345 for CD19+ cells. After validation, significant differences (p value <0.05) were confirmed only for hsa-miR-143 and hsa-miR-224 in CD4+ cells and for hsa-miR-10a and hsa-miR-345 in CD19+ cells. In all cases, the miRNAs were over expressed in SLE patients compared with healthy donors.

CONCLUSIONS:

Our results support a different pattern of miRNA expression in SLE patients.
