Table 2 Criteria for categorization

From: Detection and quantification of microRNA in cerebral microdialysate

Groups Inclusion criteria for each specific miRNA Based on samples miRNA targets
High RR in vitro Cqmean CSF – Cqmean MD < ±2 and in vitro SDCSF and SDMD both < 1 6-13 63
6-13
Low RR in vitro Cqmean MD - Cqmean CSF > 4 and in vitro SDCSF < 1 6-13 53
6-13
Indetermined RR Criteria not fulfilled 6-13 173
Not present Not detected in any samples 6-13 465
  1. Criteria for categorization of 754 screened miRNAs according to their relative recovery in microdialysate from a catheter with a membrane cut-off value of 20 kDa.
  2. RR, relative recovery; Cqmean CSF, mean cycle quantification of the specific miRNA in sample 10-13, Table 1; Cqmean MD, mean cycle quantification of the specific miRNA in sample 6-9, Table 1; SDCSF, standard deviation of cycle quantification of the specific miRNA in sample 10-13, Table 1; SDMD, standard deviation of cycle quantification of the specific miRNA in sample 6-9, Table 1.
