Microarray analysis of chimeric CD4+CD28null and CD4+CD28+ T-cells in humanized mice.
ABSTRACT: The major goal of this experiment was to identify the overall changes in gene expression of human CD4+CD28 null T-cells that develop after repetitive [xeno] antigen stimulation, in comparison to normal CD4+CD28+ T-cells. These cells were derived by adoptive transfer of human CD4 T-cells from a normal donor (all CD28+) into immunodeficient mice. Chimeric human CD4+CD28+ were isolated from 4 mice, and chimeric human CD4+CD28 null cells from two of these animals after expansion and T-cell differentiation in vivo. Animals were euthanized, and single cell suspensions of splenocytes derived. CD4 T-cell subpopulations were isolated by fluoresence activated cell sorting, RNA was extrated, labeled and hybridized to whole human gene expression arrays. Overall changes in the gene expression were identified using GEDI (gene expression dynamic inspector). 603 genes were found to be statistically significant (P<0.05) between the CD4+CD28+ and CD4+CD28null cells. Candidate genes were validated using qRT-PCR

Project description:Aanlysis of human resting CD4+T cells and cells activated by two different methods: CD4+ T cells unstimulated (be susceptible but not support to HIV-1) and stimulated either by CD3/CD28 costimulation (reversed susceptibility and resisted to HIV-1) or by PHA/IL-2 for six days (be susceptible and support to HIV-1) to investigate potential mechanism of reversing susceptible to HIV-1. We measured gene expression in resting human CD4+T cells and cells activated by two methods for six days which could induce different effects to HIV-1. Three independent experiments were performed at each treatments using different donors for each experiment.
Project description:To indentify the effect of JPH203 on the gene expression in activated T cells, microarray analysis was performed using activated human T cells derived from peripheral blood. Human CD4+ T cells from peripheral blood in healthy volunteer were activated with anti-CD3 and anti-CD28 in the presence of 1uM JPH203 for 3days. RNA was extracted and gene expression was compared between JPH203-treated cells and control cells. Gene epression of human peripheral blood CD4+ T cells activated with anti-CD3 and anti-CD28 in the presence of 1uM JPH203 for 3days was measured.
Project description:microRNA transcriptional profiling of human naïve CD4 T cells comparing cells that saw no activation, only anti-CD3 or anti-CD3 and anti-CD28 to identify microRNAs specifically upregulated by CD28-mediated costimulation. Three conditions experiment. PBS, anti-CD3, anti-CD3 + anti-CD28 all compared to a reference sample. Biological triplicates, independently extracted and activated.
Project description:In this data set we include expression data from human CD4+ T cells isolated on day 0, 6, 11 and 24 follow anti-CD3/anti-CD28 magnetic bead stimulation and chimeric antigen receptor transduction. 30 samples were submitted. Samples represented three biological replicates of normal donors transduced with various CARs. CARs used were a cMet 28z specific CAR comprised of the IgG4 hinge, CD28 transmembrane and CD28 and CD3zeta intracellular domains. A CD19 CD28 CAR was specific to CD19, and was comprised of a CD8a hinge, CD28 transmembrane and CD28 and CD3zeta intracellular domain. A third CAR, the CD19 BBz, was used that was specific to CD19 was comprised of a CD8a hinge, CD8a transmembrane and 4-1BB and CD3zeta intracellular domains. Expression data was analyzied on day 0, 6, 11 and 24.
Project description:Host defense against diverse pathogens involves the recruitment and differentiation of CD4+ T effector subsets including T helper 1 (Th1), Th2, Th17 and induced regulatory T (Treg) cells. Surface phenotype studies have revealed subset-specific surface markers for the identification and purification of human primary CD4+ T effector subsets. In the present study, we aimed to characterize the mRNA and large intergenic non-coding RNA (lincRNA) expression differences between human primary CD4+ T effector subsets and identify potential subset-specific genes. To achieve this goal, mRNA and lincRNA microarray profiling of flow cytometry-sorted human primary Th1, Th2, Th17 and Treg cells was performed. Principal component and pathway analyses revealed subset-specific gene expression patterns. A Th2-specific lincRNA, GATA3-AS1, also termed FLJ45983, was identified in primary immune cells and tissues, as well as in in vitro polarized CD4+ T effector subsets. Further analysis showed that GATA3-AS1 was a potential diagnostic marker in allergy, a Th2-associated disease. This first systematic genome-wide analysis of gene expression differences between primary CD4+ T effector subsets may help to identify novel regulatory protein-coding genes and lincRNAs regulating CD4+ T cell subset differentiation, as well as potential diagnostic markers. As an example, we identified a GATA3-associated Th2-specific marker lincRNA GATA3-AS1. Gene expression microarray analysis of flow-cytometry sorted human primary naïve CD4+ T cells, CD4+ T central memory cells, Th1, Th2, Th17 and Treg cells from buffy coat of four healthy controls Gene expression microarray analysis was performed using SurePrint G3 Human Gene Expression 8X60K microarray.
Project description:A microarray study performed in iTreg of miR-31fl/fl/CD4Cre and control mice to identify genes that are regulated by the miR-31. CD4+ naïve T cells from miR-31fl/fl mice and miR-31fl/flCD4Cre mice were used to induce iTreg in vitro. Four independent experiments were performed. MiR-31fl/fl/CD4Cre mice (6 wk old) and age-matched control mice were sacrificed, and the spleen were removed and teased into cell-single suspensions and filtered through a 40 μm cell strainer. Naïve CD4+CD25-Foxp3gfp-CD62Lhi T cells were sorted by FACSAria III (BD bioscience).The medium used for T cell cultures was RPMI-1640 (Gibco) supplemented with 10% heat-inactivated FBS (Gibco), 2 mM L-glutamine (Gibco), 100 U/ml penicillin, 100 μg/ml streptomycin, and 5 mM β-mercaptoethanol (Gibco). The CD4+ Naïve T cells were stimulated with plate-bound anti-CD3 (5 μg/ml) plus soluble anti-CD28 (2 μg/ml) under iTreg cell differentiation conditions (mTGF-β1, 5 ng/ml and rmIL-2, 40 ng/ml; R&D Systems). After 4 days, harvested cell ,the RNA was extracted in Trizol and then purified using the miRNeasy Micro Kit (Qiagen). This submission shows the data obtained from 3 individual miR-31fl/fl/CD4Cre mice mice measured against 3 control mice.
Project description:Notch expressed on CD4+ T cells transduces signals that mediate their effector functions and survival by interacting with Notch ligands on adjacent cells. Although Notch signaling is known to be cis-inhibited by Notch ligands expressed on the same cells, the role of Notch ligands on T cells remain unclear. In this report we demonstrate that the Notch ligand Dll1 on CD4+ T cells transduces signals required for the maintenance of activated CD4+ T cells without affecting Notch signaling in the same cells. T cell-specific Dll1-deficient (Dll1-/-) mice did not show any defect in T cell development in thymus or spleen. Co-transfer of CD4+ T cells from Dll1-/- and control mice into recipient mice followed by immunization revealed a rapid decline of CD4+ T cells from Dll1-/- mice compared with control cells. Dll1-/- mice exhibited lower clinical scores of experimental autoimmune encephalitis than control mice. The expression of Notch target genes in CD4+ T cells from Dll1-/- mice was not affected, suggesting that Dll1 deficiency in T cells does not affect cis Notch signaling. Overexpression of the intracellular domain of Dll1 in Dll1-deficient CD4+ T cells partially rescued impaired survival. Our data highlight Dll1 as an independent regulator of Notch-signaling for the survival of activated CD4+ T cells, and provide new insight into the physiological roles of Notch ligands as well as a regulatory mechanism important for maintaining adaptive immune responses The mRNA expression in activated CD4+ T cells from mouse was obtained by DNA microarray analysis. These mRNA expression was compared.
Project description:Investigation of transcript level modulation in unstimulated and TGF-beta treated (with or without superimposed T-cell receptor and CD28 stimulation) naive CD4 T cells from wild type or Smad3-deficient littermate mice. Smad3 is a critical signaling molecule and transcription factor downstream of TGF-beta and mediates several of the TGF-beta dependent tolerogenic effects in T cells. This study was undertaken to unveil the transcriptionnal program controled by the TGF-b/Smad3 axis. Microarray study using RNA recovered after 6 hours of culture in either serum free media, serum-free media + TGF-beta (2.5ng/ml) or serum-free media + TGF-beta and anti-CD3e and anti-CD28 stimulation (3 conditions). Naive CD4 T cells (TCRb+, CD4+, CD62L+ and CD44-) were sorted from either wild type or Smad3 deficient littermates and submitted to the 3 culture conditions. Three biological replicates were obtained (each from at least 2 different mice). Thus a total of 18 Nimblegen 365K chip were used.
