A recent proof-of-concept pilot study proposed using microRNA (miRNA) markers for time of death determination. The markers - miRNA-142-5p and miRNA-541, were reported to show considerable expression differences in vitreous humor between individuals who died during the day or night. Here, we investigated whether these miRNA markers show the same ...
