Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia compared small RNAs from tissue samples taken from people with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus. They found evidence that a specific cluster of microRNAs was downregulated in diabetes patients, with the promoter of that locus hypermethylated. Pippin Prep was used to size-select microRNAs for sequencing.
