Here we describe tools developed to isolate total RNA, for mRNA and miRNA analyses, in the context of an epigenetic workflow with cancer cell lines. Using this workflow with two breast cancer cell lines, with distinct responses to histone deacetylase(HDAC) inhibition, we can measure cell health, cytotoxicity, HDAC activity, and mRNA plus miRNA expression profiling in a single experiment. The manual total RNA isolation method we describe can also be used with 3D cell cultures.
