Transcription profiling of E. coli dam and mutS mutants exposed to cisplatin

ABSTRACT: We used Affymetrix microarrays to determine the cisplatin-induced gene expression changes in E. coli deficient in dam and mismatch repair (dam, dam mutS, and mutS mutant strains). E. coli deficient in dam are hypersensitive to cisplatin. However introducing an additional mutation in mismatch repair (i.e., a mutation in mutS or mutL) abrogates this sensitivity and essentially restores wildtype levels of resistance. Experiment Overall Design: Overnight cultures were diluted 1000-fold and grown in Luria-Bertani (LB) medium until the cells reached exponential growth as determined by OD600. The exponentially growing cells were resuspended in M9 minimal medium at a cell density of 2 X 108 cells/ml in a volume of 15 ml and treated with 150 uM cisplatin for 2 hours at 37°C. Following treatment cultures were resuspended in 15 ml LB and allowed to recover for 90 minutes at 37°C. OD600 readings were taken after the recovery period, when RNA isolation began. Total RNA was isolated from cells by extraction using the MasterPure RNA Purification Kit (Epicentre Technologies) according to the manufacture’s protocol. The isolated total RNA was quantitated by absorption at 260 nm (typical yield from a 15 ml culture was 250-500 µg of total RNA), and the purity was determined by the ratio of absorption values at 260/280nm. RNA quality was determined by formaldehyde agarose gel electrophoresis (1.2% agarose in FA Buffer pH 7.0 (20mM 3-[N-morpholino]propanesulfonic acid, 5mM sodium acetate, 1mM ethylenadiaminetetraacetic acide (EDTA)) or by analysis on an Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer. All samples visualized by gel electrophoresis or by the bioanalyzer electropherogram showed clear distinct bands correlating to 16S and 23S ribosomal RNA, indicating that no detectable RNA degradation occurred and that RNA integrity was maintained throughout the RNA isolation procedure.
