Research activity

Development and application of the microarray technology. I have developed and analyzed cDNA and oligonucleotides microarrays to define the gene expression profiling of dystrophic skeletal muscle (limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 2A and type 2B (LGMD2A and LGMD2B) and facio scapulo humeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) and of trouble in cardiovascular system. Moreover, I have developed a new electronic device to detect DNA hybridization kinetics. I developed new bioinformatic approaches to improve the meta analysis of gene expression data and applied them to define antigenic signature in patients affected by chronic inflammation in skeletal muscle tissue. During last five years I become interested in miRNAs activity. I developed a new technique to detect gene expression of micro RNAs and applied it to detect micro RNA expression in culture cells used to resemble different types of rhabdomyosarcoma. Using a genome wide approach I identified different micro RNAs expressed in Sus scrofa tissues characterizing their function. Moreover, I discovered the function of miRNAs in skeletal muscle atrophy and metabolism. Recently, I was involved in the analysis of the function of long non-coding RNAs demonstrating their importance in tumors.
