MicroRNAs play critical roles through their impact on posttranscriptional gene regulation. In cancer, they can act as oncogenes or tumor suppressors and can also function as biomarkers. Here, we describe a method for robust characterization of estrogen-regulated microRNA profiles. The activity of estrogen is mediated by two nuclear receptors, estrogen receptor alpha and estrogen receptor beta, and a transmembrane G-protein coupled estrogen receptor 1. This chapter details how to prepare cells for optimal estrogen response, directions for estrogen treatment, RNA extraction, different microRNA profiling approaches, and subsequent confirmations.
