The miRNA Machinery in Melanoma, Melanoma Metastases and Benign Melanocytic Naevi
Patients with cutaneous melanoma, cutaneous melanoma metastases and benign melanocytic nevi
were included in the study. Punch biopsies were harvested from the center of the tumors. The
miRNA machinery components were detected by quantitative real-time reverse transcriptase
polymerase chain reaction.
