Heparin, a widely used anticoagulant in cardiovascular diseases, is notorious for its inhibitory effect on qRT-PCR-based detection. Heparinase I could degrade heparin in RNA. qRT-PCR-based TaqMan Low Density Array (TLDA) technology is commonly used for circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) profiling analysis. However, the effect of heparin contamination on inhibition of miRNAs TLDA amplification, as well...
