miRNA microarray profiling was used for the identification of miRNAs enriched in oligodendrocytes. Total RNA lysates from primary oligodendroctes compared to primary astrocytes were analysed regarding their miRNA levels. Three independent samples for each of the two cell types were used. The study was initially designed with a comparison of oligodendrocytes, astrocytes and microglia. However, only the comparison of oligodendrocytes and astrocytes is discussed in the present study.
