Title: MicroRNA Profiling During Bone Fracture Repair
Abstract: Fracture repair is a complex process that involves multiple biological processes requiring spatiotemporal expression of thousands of genes. The molecular regulation of this process is not completely understood. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate gene expression by promoting mRNA degradation or blocking translation. Thus, we performed a complete profiling of all known miRNAs during the early (14 days) phases of physiological fracture repair, as modeled in the mouse femur. Our data demonstrate that hundreds of miRNAs are differentially expressed and regulated during the fracture repair process. Bioinformatics analyses show many thousands of target mRNAs involving many biological processes. Taken together, these data provide the first complete analysis of miRNA expression during fracture repair and will aid in deciphering some of the molecular mechanisms responsible for the early phases of this tissue regenerative process.
