Project description:BTB and CNC homology 1 (BACH1) is a heme-binding transcription factor repressing the transcription from a subset of MAF recognition elements (MAREs) at low intracellular heme levels. Upon heme binding, BACH1 is released from the MAREs, resulting in increased expression of antioxidant response genes. To systematically address the gene regulatory networks involving BACH1, we performed knock-down of BACH1 in HEK 293T cells using three independent types of small interfering RNAs followed by transcriptome profiling using microarrays. Knockdown of BACH1 in HEK 293T cells was carried out with three different types of siRNA molecules (esiRNA = e, siRNA1 SI00309876 from Qiagen = q and Stealth siRNA2 HSS100910 from Invitrogen = s), followed by RNA extraction after 24h and 72h of knockdown and hybridization on Affymetrix microarrays. For each siRNA type, we performed the experiments in triplicates, with four control replicates (mock transfections without siRNA) at 24h and three control replicates at 72h, resulting in nine samples and four controls at 24h and nine samples and three controls at 72h. Samples at 24h of knockdown: e_1_24, e_2_24, e_3_24, q_1_24, q_2_24, q_3_24, s_1_24, s_2_24, s_3_24. Controls at 24h: m_1_24, m_2_24, m_3_24, m_4_72. Samples at 72h of knockdown: e_1_72, e_2_72, e_3_72, q_1_72, q_2_72, q_3_72, s_1_72, s_2_72, s_3_72. Controls at 72h: m_1_72, m_2_72, m_3_72. REPEATS: biological replicate: BACH1_e_1_24, BACH1_e_2_24, BACH1_e_3_24 biological replicate: BACH1_q_1_24, BACH1_q_2_24, BACH1_q_3_24 biological replicate: BACH1_s_1_24, BACH1_s_2_24, BACH1_s_3_24 biological replicate: BACH1_m_1_24, BACH1_m_2_24, BACH1_m_3_24, BACH1_m_4_24 biological replicate: BACH1_e_1_72, BACH1_e_2_72, BACH1_e_3_72 biological replicate: BACH1_q_1_72, BACH1_q_2_72, BACH1_q_3_72 biological replicate: BACH1_s_1_72, BACH1_s_2_72, BACH1_s_3_72 biological replicate: BACH1_m_1_72, BACH1_m_2_72, BACH1_m_3_72
Project description:To monitor global transcript changes after Paf1C depletion we transfected ESCs with esiRNA targeting Ctr9 and control esiRNA (Luc). Overall design: 4 replicates of esiRNA tranfection controls (luciferase esiRNA) and 4 replicates of Ctr9 esiRNA tranfection samples
Project description:The Cohesin complex has recently been described to regulate gene expression. We wanted to determine the gene expression profile specific in mouse ES cells after depletion of the Cohesin subunit Rad21. We used microarrays to detail the global programme of gene expression underlying depletion of Rad21 and identified distinct early development related genes up-regulated and many pluripotency related genes downregulated. Rad21 was depleted in R1/E ES cells for 48h using esiRNAs against Rad21. An esiRNA against non-targeting Luciferase was used as a negative control
Project description:Transcriptional changes assayed with two bilogical replicates in wild type and RNAi mediated insulator knock-downs RNAi mediated insulator knock-downs cause changes in the H3K27me3 levels and spread of Topoisomerase II In order to understand the role of insulators in gene expression and regulation we used Drosophila Kc cells to knock-down single and multiple insulators in combination to assay for transcriptional changes. Two biologial replicates were prepared in independent experiments. Each cDNA samples were labeled with Cy3 dye and hybridized and scaned as per manufactures instructions at Florida State University Nimblegen facility.
Project description:Epiblast stem cells (EpiSCs) are pluripotent cells that can be isolated and cultured from post implantation embryos. In contrast to embryonic stem cells (ESCs), systematic studies to investigate the genes that maintain pluripotency in EpiSCs have not been reported. Here we combine a genome-wide RNAi screen with genetic interaction, protein localization and protein-level dependency studies to delineate connectivity between factors that control Oct4 expression in EpiSCs and compare the role of these factors to their function in ES cells. We demonstrate the power of this integrative approach by the identification of Tox4 as an interactor of PP1 (Protein Phosphatase 1) and Paf1C, a complex that acts in multiple aspects of RNAPII regulation. Our results indicate that Tox4 cooperates with Paf1C and PP1 to influence the phosphorylation status of the RNAPII CTD tail during transcription and that this function is vital for maintenance of pluripotent cell identity.

Project description:To assay the effect of depletion of the RNA exosome on RNAs shorter than the standard length captured by RNA-seq (>200 nt), we created RNA-seq libraries using fragmented RNA and a linker-ligation-based protocol that does not deplete RNAs shorter than 200 nt. Note: these data relate to Figure 6E in Lubas, Andersen et al., Cell Reports 2014 (accepted) Overall design: These samples constitute RNA-seq libraries prepared to enrich for short RNA fragments such as snRNA and snoRNAs. Three different HeLa cell RNAi experiments were used to generate the RNA samples applied in the library construction: control transfected, hRRP40-depleted and triple-depleted of the known RNA exosome-associated ribonucleases (DIS3, DIS3L and hRRP6 knock-down). By these means the data offers reveal RNA exosome substrates via their up-regulation in the respective knock-downs NOTE: The 'Figure6E_RNAseq_DataTable_PlottedValues.txt' was generated from total 5 samples, with two additional published samples [SRP031620] and provided to better allow readers to fully replicate the analyses presented in the publication.
Project description:By survival analysis of breast cancer patients, JMJD6 was found to be significantly associated with poor prognosis. Over-expression and knock-down of JMJD6 in breast cancer cell lines suggested a role in proliferation. In order to study the transcriptional events that occur following JMJD6 expression changes, siRNA-mediated knock-down of JMJD6 was performed in MCF-7 and MDA-MB231 and stable over-expression of JMJD6 was performed in MCF-7. There are 2 different siRNA-mediated knock-downs of JMJD6 with 2 biological replicates in MCF-7 and MDA-MB231; 3 clones of JMJD6 over-expression with 3 biological replicates in MCF-7. The control for the knock-downs is scrambled siRNA-treated MCF-7 and MDA-MB231 and the control for JMJD6 over-expression is empty vector over-expression in MCF-7.
Project description:The Piwi–piRNA complex (Piwi–piRISC) in Drosophila ovarian somatic cells represses transposons transcriptionally to maintain genome integrity; however, the underlying mechanisms remain obscure. We performed mRNA-seq analysis from OSCs transfected with siRNAs against CG3893, the known piRNA pathway genes, Piwi, Maelstrom, HP1a and Armitage, and the control (EGFP), and PolII ChIP-seqanalysis from OSCs transfected with siRNAs against CG3893, Piwi, Mael and the control (EGFP). This result indicates that CG3893 is a novel factor for primary piRNA pathway in OSCs. RNA levels in wild-type (EGFP control knock-down) ovarian somatic cells (OSC) and RNAi knock-downs of Piwi, Armi, Mael, CG3893, and HP1a. RNA Polymerase II occupancy in wild-type (EGFP control knock-down) ovarian somatic cells (OSC) and RNAi knock-downs of Piwi, Mael, and CG3893.
