MiRNA profiles of adipocyte-derived microvesicles (ADMs)
ABSTRACT: miRNA profiles of adipocyte-derived microvesicles (ADMs) on the Day 2-4 and Day 8-10 were compared. ADMs were prepared from the 48h-conditioned medium of 3T3-L1 adipocytes (Day 2-4 and Day 8-10) followed by RNA isolation.

We have recently found that 3T3-L1 adipocytes secrete microvesicles, known as adipocyte-derived microvesicles (ADMs), with angiogenic activity. In this study, we found that ADMs contain RNA without typical 28S and 18S ribosomal RNA inside the vesicles. Microarray analysis revealed that ADMs contain approximately 7000 mRNAs and 140 microRNAs. Most of transcripts for adipocyte-specific and dominant genes were contained in the ADMs, and their abundance was mostly correlated with that in the donor c ...[more]
Project description:To elucidate the signalling network responsible for mediating the effects of FGF21, we quantified the dynamic phosphoproteome of adipocytes following acute exposure to this hormone. A major FGF21-regulated signalling node was mTORC1/S6K. In contrast to insulin, we find that FGF21 activates mTORC1 via MAPK signalling rather than through the canonical PI3K/AKT pathway. This study provides a systems view of FGF21 signalling and reveals a new role for mTORC1 in maintaining nutrient homeostasis.
Project description:We profiled PPARg dependent gene expression changes during differntiation of 3T3L1 cell using PPARg siRNA 3T3-L1 (Pre-adipocyte) cell line was induced to differentiate using standard adipocyte differentiation media (IBMX, Dex and Insulin) 48hrs post-confluency. RNA was harvested at day -2 (confluent fibroblasts), 48hrs post-induction with IBMX, DEX and Insulin (day=0) and for each subsequent day after rosiglitazone treatment. Illumina beadchip microarrays were used to determine expression profiles of genes differentially regulated in cells transfected with either siRNA targeting PPARgamma or a non-targeting control siRNA. 3T3L1 cell were induced to differentiate into adipocytes using IBMX, DEX and Insulin. RNA from cell treated with PPARg-specific siRNA and non-specific siRNA was isolated at different timepoints. Illumina MouseRef-8 v1.1 Bead chips were used for expression profiling
Project description:Influenza A viruses cause epidemics and pandemics with damaging health and economic impacts. Alike any obligate intracellular pathogen, IAVs hijack host cell machinery and energetic resources to multiply within, and eventually exit, the host. Increased fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis, as well as increased glucose metabolism have been identified as the major metabolic changes induced by infection. Besides these effects on metabolism, IAV infection also triggers a variety of innate defense mechanisms within the host cell. Although mainly defined as a virus of the respiratory tract, with airway epithelial cells being its prime cellular habitat, complications outside the site of infection have also been reported. However, whether influenza on its own may impact on endocrine tissues and, thereby, lead to metabolic complications, has never been investigated. Here, we compared the response of preadipocytes and adipocytes to IAV infection, in terms of transcriptomic profiles and bioenergetics. The results showed that IAV triggers a browning adipogenesis process, leading to metabolic reprogramming of the adipose tissue resulting in long-lasting alterations of body metabolism. We conclude that the adipose tissue might be an undervalued organ in influenza pathophysiology.

Project description:Here, we have used digital genomic footprinting to precisely define protein localization for several adipogenic transcription factors at a genome-wide level. In combination with ChIP-seq data, these analyses reveal novel molecular insight into the organization of transcription factors at hotpot regions, which provides a new framework for understanding transcription factor cooperativity on chromatin. Digital genomic footprinting and gene expression in 3T3-L1 pre-adipocytes by high throughput sequencing.
Project description:14-3-3 proteins facilitate cytoplasmic-nuclear shuttling of transcription factors.Adipocyte differentiation requires the function of critical transcription factors to drive the development of a mature adipocyte. The aim of the study was to investigate if 14-3-3ζ is required for the adipogenic transcriptional program. Examination of the transcriptome in siCon- and si14-3-3ζ-transfected 3T3-L1 cells undergoing differentiation at t=0, 24, and 48 hours.
Project description:Insulin is a potent regulator of protein metabolism. Here we describe a time-resolved map of insulin-regulated protein turnover in 3T3-L1 adipocytes using metabolic pulse-chase labelling and high-resolution mass spectrometry.
Project description:Using RNA-Seq, we compared the transcriptomes of differentiated 3T3-L1 adipocytes for control and ZFP407-deficient cells Differentiated 3T3-L1 cells were electroporated with control or 1 of 2 Zfp407 siRNAs. Six independent siRNA electroporations were conducted for the control siRNA and 3 independent electroporations were conducted for each Zfp407 siRNA.
Project description:The nuclear receptor PPAR gamma is required for adipocyte differentiation, but its role in mature adipocytes is less clear. Here we report that knockdown of PPAR gamma expression in 3T3-L1 adipocytes returned the expression of most adipocyte genes towards preadipocyte levels. Consistently, down regulated but not up regulated genes showed strong enrichment of PPAR gamma binding. Surprisingly, not all adipocyte genes were reversed and the adipocyte morphology was maintained for an extended period after PPAR gamma depletion. To explain this, we focused on transcriptional regulators whose adipogenic regulation was not reversed upon PPAR gamma depletion. We identified GATA2, a transcription factor whose down-regulation early in adipogenesis is required for preadipocyte differentiation, remaining low after PPAR gamma knockdown. Forced expression of GATA2 in mature adipocytes complemented PPAR gamma depletion and impaired adipocyte functionality with a more preadipocyte- like gene expression profile. Ectopic expression of GATA2 in adipose tissue in vivo had similar effect on adipogenic gene expression. These results suggest that PPAR gamma-independent down regulation of GATA2 prevents reversion of mature adipocytes after PPAR gamma depletion.
