MicroRNA discovery and analysis of Dirofilaria immitis by deep sequencing.
ABSTRACT: To understand how microRNA are involved in the complex biology of this zoonotic parasite, we describe our initial attempts to characterize small RNA in adult Dirofilaria immitis by using Illumina/Solexa deep-sequencing technology. Examination of 4 different adult Dirofilaria immitis (pooled)
The heartworm Dirofilaria immitis is the causative agent of cardiopulmonary dirofilariosis in dogs and cats, which also infects a wide range of wild mammals and humans. The complex life cycle of D. immitis with several developmental stages in its invertebrate mosquito vectors and its vertebrate hosts indicates the importance of miRNA in growth and development, and their ability to regulate infection of mammalian hosts. This study identified the miRNA profiles of D. immitis of zoonotic significan ...[more]
Project description:sRNA profiling from adult Taenia multiceps by Illumina high-throughput sequencing was used to increase our understanding of the molecular regulation mechanisms of the cestode,find novel biomarkers for the parasitic disease and search new strategies to control these parasites. examination of 6 individuals of adult stage of Taenia multiceps (pooled)
Project description:In order to discover novel small RNAs expressed in elongated spermatids, we isolated elongated spermatids from mouse testis. The small RNA fraction (18-40nt) was cloned and sequenced from total RNA. RNAs extracted from elongated spermatids were used for high throughput sequencing analysis
Project description:In order to discover novel small RNAs expressed in mature sperm, we isolated mature sperm from mouse cauda epididymis, comparing with data from adult tesis and uterus. The small RNA fraction (18-40nt) was cloned and sequenced from total RNA of mature sperm, testis and uterus of mice. RNAs extracted from mature sperm, adult testis and uterus were used for high throughput sequencing analysis
Project description:PD0325901 is involved in improving reprogramming efficiency during inducing pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) or maintain a blastocyst-like state in embryonic stem cells (ESC). However, the knowledge about this small molecule regulating miRNAs in ESC was limited. To understand the role of miRNAs during PD03-induced ESC maintenance and gain an insight how PD0325901 regulates miRNAs expression; we performed small RNA sequencing using Illumina HiSeq 2000 under the compounds treatment. The data show the miRNAs regulated by PD0325901. J1 mESCs maintained in medium containing 1000 U/mL LIF and supplemented with PD0325901 for 24 hours, J1 treated with DMSO was set as control. Then total RNA was extracted for analysis.
Project description:We applied Illumina sequencing to identify microRNAs (miRNAs) and piwi-interacting small RNAs (piRNAs) in Dugesia japonica. Dugesia were cut up after seven day’s starvation. DJ1 is the whole Dugesia body, DJ2 is the head part, DJ3 is the tail part, DJ4 is the left part and DJ5 is the right part. Total RNA was extracted by Trizol, and preserved in ethanol, stored at -80°C until further use. 5 samples examined：DJ1,DJ2,DJ3,DJ4,DJ5. SRA study (not submitted by GEO): SRP017693
Project description:For the further examination of cell cycle dependent miRNA expression profile, DNA content based fluorescence activated cell sorting (cell cycle sort) was performed on human transformed cancer cell lines. Phase-dependent miRNA expression profiling was performed on G1, S and G2 phases. Results were validated by quantitative real-time PCR. Phase-dependent miRNA expression profiling was performed on sorted human cancer (cervical - HeLa, adrenocortical - NCI-H295R) cells). G1, S and G2 phases were successfully sorted and analyzed.
Project description:We aimed to identify miRNA regulated by alternate bearing in O. europaea. For this purpose, six olive (Olea europaea L. )(Ayvalık variety) small RNA libraries were constructed from fruits (ripe and unripe) and leaves ("on-year" and "off-year" mature -leaven in November and juvenile - leaven in July plants) and sequenced by high-throughput Illumina sequencing. Bioinformatics analyses of 93,526,915 reads identified 135 conserved miRNA, belonging to 22 miRNA families in olive tree. In addition, 38 novel miRNA were discovered in the datasets. Expression of olive tree miRNA varied greatly among the six libraries, indicating contribution of diverse miRNA in balancing between reproductive and vegetative phases. The differential expression of miRNA was evaluated on the basis of the developmental phase of the samples. Sequences of six olive miRNAs (Olea europaea L. )(Ayvalık variety) plants (ripe and unripe fruits, leaves of mature and juvenile plants of both "on-year" and "off-year") were generated by Illumina sequencing
Project description:High-throughput sequence analysis of small RNAs of TYLCV-tolerant (containing tolerance gene Ty-1) and susceptible varieties indicated that miRNA-like vsRNAs and secondary vsiRNAs are mainly contributed to hotpots. Interestingly, various characteristics of vsRNAs among each sample are consistent, but in different number of expression; Deep sequencing of degradome provided evidence for the function of vsRNAs-mediated viral transcripts slicing; And bisulfite sequencing PCR suggested the geminivirus DNA methylation induced by vsRNAs. Comparison of the expression quantity and trend of viral DNA, mRNA and vsRNA inferred that the quantity of vsRNAs is significantly corresponding to the expression level of viral mRNA. Nevertheless, vsRNAs had finite effect on inhibition of virus replication and expression. Here, we also speculated that by RDR catalysis of vsRNAs amplification, the tolerance gene Ty-1 may take an effective inhibition of viral transcription at the beginning of TYLCV infection. Examination of 6 different sRNA and 4 degradome library in 2 tomato material. The main result of our paper is distinguish the host plant sRNA and viral-derived sRNA from the .fa files (MMS_21dpi, 30dpi and TY1S_21dpi, 30dpi).
