AbstractBackground:The aim of this study is to compare microRNA expression patterns in different stages of colorectal cancer (CRC) and to discuss the significance of the application of microRNAs in the clinical treatment of CRC.Methods:The study used gene chip technology to analyze genetic sequences in CRC tissues and surrounding normal tissues at different cancer stages. The bioinformatics profiles of the target genes of the different microRNAs were analyzed to clarify the target gene-related pathways and their functions in the disease.Results:A total of 368 target genes with differential expression, including 275 upregulated and 93 downregulated genes, were screened from CRC patients in different stages of the disease. These microRNAs participated widely in the occurrence and development processes of CRC. The microRNA expression profiles obviously differed in tissues at different CRC stages.Conclusion:microRNA regulation of CRC samples can be used as a tool to control the occurrence and development of tumor cells.
