Objective. Determination of expression of microRNA-34a in tissues of pleomorphic adenomas of large salivary glands, adjacent to tumor salivary gland tissue, intact tissue of a salivary gland, which was not connected with the tumor, and in a venous blood as well. Materials and methods. The investigation was conducted in 20 patients, suffering benign tumors of large salivary glands (pleomorphic adenomas). Expression was estimated, using adverse transcription and quantitative polymerase chain

Analysis of the expression level for microRNA-34a was conducted in the tumoral tissue, adjacent to the tumor salivary gland tissue, and in intact tissue of salivary gland, which lacked a link with the tumor, the venous blood in patients, suffering pleomorphic adenomas of large salivary glands, and there was revealed, that it have appeared the highest in the salivary gland adjacent to the tumor - (1052.02 ± 367.20, comparing with the same index in the intact gland - 47.72 ± 28.93). Conclusion. Level of expression of microRNA-34a in the tissues of pleomorphic adenomas of salivary glands, which is in 11 times higher, than in norm (in intact tissue of salivary gland), may be applied as a genetic marker for verification of these tumors.
