Figure 1: Detection of miRNAs in plasma samples of normal, T2DM-susceptible individuals, and diagnosed T2DM patients as well as 293 cells. RNA was extracted from plasma samples of the 3 groups and 293 cells. miRNAs were assessed by qRT-PCR assays. The samples with an average qRT-PCR result of Ct < 40 were considered as positive. The qRT-PCR products were visualized by 2% agarose gel electrophoresis.
