Expression profiling of mouse glioma-initiating cell-like cells (GICs) and non-GICs

ABSTRACT: To identify factors involved in glioma-initiating cells (GICs), we compared gene expression between GIC-like cells and non-GICs. Neural stem cells (NSCs) were transfected with pCMS-EGFP-HRasL61 and pBabe-neo by electroporation and cultured in 0.5 mg/ml neomycin. The GFP-positive stable NSCs (NSCL61s) were purified by flow cytometry. Total RNA was prepared using RNeasy Mini Kit (QIAGEN).

Recent findings have shown that malignant tumors contain cancer-initiating cells (CIC), which self-renew and are tumorigenic. However, CICs have not been characterized properly due to lack of specific markers. We recently established a mouse glioma cell line, NSCL61, by overexpressing an oncogenic HRas(L61) in p53-deficient neural stem cells. Using limiting dilution assays, we show that only 2 of 24 NSCL61 clones retained their tumorigenicity in vivo, although the others also expressed oncogenic  ...[more]
