Expression profiles of mouse glioma-initiating cells.

ABSTRACT: To identify factors involved in glioma-initiating cells (GICs), we compared gene expressions between GIC-like cells and non-GICs. p53-deficient Neural stem cells (NSCs), oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs), and astrocytes (ASTs) 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), OPCs (OPCL61s) and ASTs (ASTL61s) were purified by flow cytometry. Total RNA was prepared using a RNeasy Mini Kit (QIAGEN) and used for the expression analysis.

Recent findings have demonstrated that malignant tumors, including glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), contain cancer-initiating cells (CICs; also known as cancer stem cells), which self-renew and are malignant. However, it remains controversial whether such CICs arise from tissue-specific stem cells, committed precursor cells, or differentiated cells. Here, we sought to examine the origin of the CICs in GBM. We first showed that the overexpression of oncogenic HRas(L61) transformed p53-deficient oli  ...[more]
