Abstract: Objective To explore the mechanisms of aging,hippocampal tissue of senescence accelerated mouse(SAM)were used to screen aging related miRNAs. Methods SAMP8 and SAMR1 (4-, 8-, 12- month old) were randomly selected 3with each group, extracting RNA from hippocampal tissue for miRNA microarray. To verify the relative quantitative expression of miRNAs, SYBR Green was used as a dye for the Real-time PCR and snRNA U6 was used as control. Results Based on the validation of real-time PCR, here we present the microarray results which have better repeatability and authenticity. Comprehensive analysis of three repeat miRNA array data showed that 7 miRNAs, 8 miRNAsand 3 miRNAs are dynamically expressed in the 4- month/8- months, 8- month/12- months and 4- month/12- month hippocampal tissues, respectively. Only miR-9* showed an obviously differential expression pattern in both the three stages. Conclusions The differentially expressed miRNAs in SAMP8 and SAMR1 mice could play an important role in the aging process.
