Transcription profiling by array of mouse NIH3T3 cells over-expressing PPARg pr EBF1 over time
ABSTRACT: NIH-3T3 cells transduced with either EBF1-, PPARg2- or empty vector were stimulated with hormones to initiate adipocyte differentiation. RNA extraction was done using TriZol at d0, d2, d4 and d10 after stimulation. Samples were handled according to standard affymetrix protocols. Keywords = Adipogenesis, early B-cell factor 1 (EBF1), commitment, differentiation, NIH-3T3, pparg
Differentiation of multipotent mesenchymal stem cells into lipid-accumulating adipocytes is a physiological process induced by transcription factors in combination with hormonal stimulation. We have used Affymetrix microarrays to compare the adipogenic differentiation pathways of NIH-3T3 fibroblasts induced to undergo in vitro differentiation by ectopic expression of early B cell factor (EBF)-1 or peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)gamma2. These experiments revealed that commitment ...[more]

Project description:ChIP-seq data from mouse adipocyte. Mature 3T3-L1 adipocytes were cross-linked with 1% formaldehyde 10 days after induction with MDI. Frozen cell pellets were submitted to the Broad Institute for subsequent analysis of Ebf1-bound regions using anti-Ebf1 antibody (Abnova H00001879-M01).
Project description:Nine heterogeneous melanoma cell lines including D10 and WM115 were studied for cancer stem cell characteristics in vitro. D10 cell line was the only cell line expressing the cancer stem cell marker CD133. Thus, gene expression profiling on CD133+ and CD133- D10 cells was carried out using Affymetrix GeneChips Human Genome U133A 2.0.
Project description:Ebf1 deficient pre-pro B-cells (Fraction A) can be cultured in the presence of stromal feeders and cytokines. The retroviral transduction of these cells with Ebf1 was used as gain-of-function experiment for the analysis of direct and functional target genes of Ebf1. Ebf1 deficient pre-pro B-cells were retrovirally transduced with an Ebf1-expressing or control retrovirus. 24h after transduction the infected cells were isolated and their gene expression profile was compared.
Project description:Ebf1 is a transcription factor with documented, and dose dependent, functions in both normal and malignant B-lymphocyte development. In order to understand more about the role of Ebf1 in malignant transformation, we have investigated the impact of reduced functional Ebf1 dose on early B-cell progenitors. Gene expression analysis in loss and gain of function analysis suggested that Ebf1 was involved in the regulation of genes of importance for DNA repair as well as cell survival. Investigation of the level of DNA damage in steady state as well as after induction of DNA damage by UV light supported that pro-B cells lacking one functional allele of Ebf1 display a reduced ability to repair DNA damage. This was correlated to a reduction in expression of Rad51 and combined analysis of published 4C and chromatin Immuno precipitation data suggested that this gene is a direct target for Ebf1. Even though the lack of one allele of Ebf1 did not result in any dramatic increase of tumor formation, we noted a dramatic increase in the formation of pro-B cell leukemia in mice carrying a combined heterozygote mutation in the Ebf1 and Pax5 genes. Even though the tumors were phenotypically similar and stable, we noted a large degree of molecular heterogeneity well in line with a mechanism involving impaired DNA repair. Our data support the idea that Ebf1 controls homologous DNA repair in a dose dependent manner and that this may explain the frequent involvement of Ebf1 in human leukemia 230238: Briefly, 230238 preB-cell line was infected with pMIG-Ebf1-engrailed or pMIG-control (empty vector). Cells were GFP sorted and 500.000 cells were resuspended in RLT for subsequent RNA-extraction. Analysis were perfomred in triplicate. FL Ebf1-KO: E14.5 fetal liver (FL) Ebf1-/- were isolated and expanded expanded in vitro on OP9 stroma cells on conditions permissive for B-cell development. Expanded cells were infected with pMIG-Ebf1-ER and sorted on GFP. Cells were reseeded on OP9 stroma cells and tamoxifen was added to a final concentration of 0.1 uM. 500.000 cells were harvested and RNA extracted 0, 6, 12 and 24h. Gene expression levels were compared to 0h and analysis were performed in duplicates. Tumor LNs: Enlarged lymphnodes from approximately 30 weeks old C57BL/6 Ebf1+/-Pax5+/- were dissected, homogenized and live frozen. After thawing, 1 million lymphnodes cells were live sorted and resuspended in RLT prior to RNA extraction. 8 samples were analyzed in duplicates. 1 million proB cells from wt C57BL/6 were sorted and used as controls.
Project description:Examination of EBf1 binding by ChIP-seq in differentiated human adipose stromal cell (hASC) pre-adipocyte Pre-Adipocytes differentiated in-vitro were fixed in 1% formaldehyde for 15 min at room temperature and quenched for 5 min by adding glycine to a final concentration of 0.125 M. ChIP assays were then performed with custom-made EBF1 antibody or rabbit IgG . ChIP-sequencing libraries were prepared using NEBnext chip-seq library Prep master mix set from 5 ng of anti-EBF1 and anti-IgG ChIP DNA, respectively. Sequence data were generated with Illumina HiSeq 2000 single-read sequencing and aligned against the human genome (hg19, NCBI).
Project description:Transcriptional profiling of parental S. cerevisiae San I cells in comparison with its translocant derivative D10 Small strain. The latter strain was obtained using Bridge Induced translocation technique between DUR3 gene (Chromosome VIII) and ADH1 gene (Chromosome XV), and exhibited an abnormal phenotype comprising elongated buds and multi-budded, unevenly nucleated pseudo-hyphae. Goal was to demonstrate how chromosomal translocations can influence gene expression of translocant and other chromosomes. Two-condition experiment, direct comparison of Saccharomyces cerevisiae D10 small (4 biological replicates) vs. pooled WT San I (reference) cells.
Project description:Using resting and LPS-stimulated B cells from mice carrying two Ebf1 alleles flanked with loxP sites and an inducible Cre recombinase, target genes of Ebf 1 and the effect of Ebf1 deletion on the cells was analyzed. Target genes of Ebf 1 and the effect of Ebf1 deletion on the cells was analyzed. Ebf1 fl/fl mice and heterozygote control animals carrying an ER-Cre fusion protein were treated with Tamoxifen-Citrate and were sacrificed for analysis. Resting B cells were sorted and were either left untreated or were stimulated with LPS, followed by RNA extraction for expression analysis. See related Series GSE35915.
Project description:An assessment of a role of Ebf1 in committed B lineage cells. In this study, we adopted the strategy of deleting Ebf1 after reconstitution of Rag2-/-Il2rg-/- mice and found that committed pre-B cells could be converted into T cells and ILCs upon deletion of Ebf1. We used µ-arrays to gain insight into changes in gene expression of CD19+ Ebf1-deficient cells. The dataset was compared with microarray data available for different hematopoietic developmental stages (GSE15907). The complete dataset is linked below as a supplementary file.
Project description:The transcription factor network in Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) represents a unique composition of proteins found in no other hematopoietic cell. An aberrant downregulation of the B cell transcription factor EBF1 is observed in the B cell-derived Hodgkin and Reed/Sternberg (HRS) tumor cells. Herein, we elucidated the consequences of the down regulation of this factor in HL. To obtain a more comprehensive overview of EBF1 regulated genes in cHL cell lines, we performed a gene chip analysis comparing gene expression in tGFP-EBF1-transduced L-1236 and L-428 cells compared to samples transduced with vectors encoding only tGFP. 12 total samples were analyzed. Three independent samples were analyzed per condition and cell line.We generated the following pairwise comparisons using Bioconductor: tGFP-EBF1 L-428 < tGFP L-428; tGFP-EBF1 L-1236 < tGFP L-1236. Genes with an FDR≤ 5 % and a fold-change ≥ 2.0 and ≤ -2.0 were selected.
