Transcript of The discovery of putative urinary marker for detection of type 1 diabetic nephropathy by integrative mining of public miRNA databases

Diabetic Nephropathy
The discovery of putative urine marker for detection of Type 1 diabetic nephropathy by integrative mining of public miRNA databases

Aim of work
To select miRNA relevant to type 1 diabetic nephropathy from the databases and to evaluate its usefulness as a urine molecular marker for early diabetic nephropathy detection.

Exosomal miRNA

Diabetic Nephropathy

Molecular mechanisms.


Aim of work
Patients and methods
Our presentation consists of :
Mechanisms of Diabetic nephropathy
Urinary exosomes
What is urinary exosome?

It is 40-100 nm vesicles.
Containing protein, mRNA, miRNA.
Can be isolated for proteomic analysis and RNA profiling.

Exosomal miRNA
Exosomes are normally secreted in urine.
Exosomes contain miRNA.
So by isolating exosomes we can perform miRNA profiling
To evaluate expression of miRNA in patients with diabetic nephropathy.

Is a
for DN rather than a
for its progression.
There is, thus, an increasing quest to find novel biomarkers.

Why early detection of DN ?
To identify and treat individuals at high risk.

To reduce the incidence of end stage renal disease and death.

Patients and methods
Persistent elevation of ACR (Albumin Creatinine Ratio) for 3 successive sampling in 6 months duration.
is defined as an ACR between 30-300 mg/g.
is defined as an ACR > 300 mg/g.
2 of 3 samples
should fall within the microalbuminuric or macroalbuminuric range to confirm classification.
