Genome-wide gene expression analysis for Klebsiella pneumoniae MGH 78578
ABSTRACT: Genome-wide gene expression analysis was performed with the cells in exponential and stationary growth phases. Through these two growth status, 89.6% of currently annotated genes were expressed. High-density oligonucleotide tiling arrays consisting of 379,528 50-mer probes spaced 30 bp apart across the whole Klebsiella pneumoniae MGH 78578 genome was used (Roche NimbleGen).
Project description:To investigate the whole-genome gene expression difference between the wild-type and capsule deletion mutant in Klebsiella pneumoniae MGH 78578. The mutants analyzed in this study are further described in Huang T.W., Stapleton J.C., Chang H.Y., Tsai S.F., Palsson B.O., Charusanti P. Capsule removal via lambda-Red knockout system perturbs biofilm formation and fimbriae extression in Klesiella pneumoniae MGH 78578 (manuscript submission) A six chip study using total RNA recovered from three separate wild-type cultures and three separate cultures of a capsule deltion mutant of Klebsiella pneumoniae MGH 78578. The capsule gene cluster (KPN_02493 to KPN_02515) was entirely removed in the capsule deletion mutant. Each chip measures the expression level of 5,305 genes from Klebsiella pneumoniae MGH 78578 and the associated five plasmids (pKPN3, pKPN4, pKPN5, pKPN6 and pKPN7) with 50-mer oligo tiling array with 30-mer spacer.
Project description:Genome-wide identification of RNA polymerase (RNAP) binding sites were performed in Klebsiella pneumoniae MGH 78578 (KP). Anti-RNAP is used to capture the RNAP in KP. ChIP-chip was performed on tiling array specifically made for KP. Comparison ChIP by anti-RNAP antibody vs ChIP by normal mouse IgG (control, mock IP)
Project description:Sequences of 11 amino acids belonging to the KPN_00363 protein and KPN_00459 protein from Klebsiella pneumoniae MGH 78578 which was previously identified as potentially immunogenic was analyzed via alanine scanning to narrow down the significant amino acid residues within the sequence. Overall design: 26 peptides, two representing the original sequences, 22 peptides with each residue replaced by alanine (or glycin, if the original sequence contained alanine) as well as two related peptides were synthesized on microarrays by JPTs Pepstar Technology. For each microarray, nine replicates for each peptide were spotted. The microarray was seperated into three incubation chambers by the ProPlate 3-well module (Grace Biolabs) to allow for incubation with different antibodies in parallel. For specific interaction rabbit polyclonal IgG to K. pneumoniae (Abcam ab20947) was used, while non-specific binding to the epitope sequences was checked using rabbit polyclonal IgG to E. coli (Abcam ab137967) and S. enterica (Abcam ab35156).
Project description:The screening of a cDNA derived expression library of Klebsiella pneumoniae MGH 78578 expressed in E.coli using a fusion construct and specific HaloTag interaction to a modified surface is shown. Thus, 1536 different clones were screened including positive (ompA, mdh) and negative (pyrC, gapA) reference proteins. The goal of the screening was to identify potential novel immunogenic proteins from K. pneumoniae by selecting clones showing a high signal intensity in comparison to the known antigens used as positve markers. Afterwards, the most promising clones were sequenced to identify the gene and corresponding protein and these proteins were then investigated further. Consequently, 14 novel immunogenic proteins could be identified. In total 1536 (4 x 384) different lysates were spotted on different microarray slides. Each slides contained 3600 distinct spots, seperated into two compartments of 1800 spots each. Each compartment comprised quadruplicate replicates of each sample lysate with controls being analysed with more replicates. As controls we used: ompA1, ompA2 and mdh (3 x 40 replicates) as positive reference proteins, as they have been described as immunogenic before. gapA and pyrC (2 x 40 replicates) as negative reference proteins, additionally two sets of E.coli cell lysates without fusionprotein expressed, namely Acella electrocompetent cells (40 replicates) and KRX (32 replicates). Last but not least a buffer control (24 replicates) was included. Therefore, each set of replicate slides contained 376 different samples and 8 controls. Each screening was performed with three replicate slides. Consequently, a total number of 12 slides were screened (4 sets of samples x 3 replicates). For identification rabbit polyclonal antibody to K. pneumoniae (Acris AP00792PU-N) as primary and Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG conjugated with ChromeoTM-546 (Abcam ab60317) as secondary antibody were used. The top compartment was incubated first with primary antibody, while the bottom compartment was incubated with PBS at the same time. Afterwards both compartments were incubated with secondary antibody.
Project description:Escherichia coli DH1 cultures with treated with 6% 1,4 Butanediol for 1 hour and compared with untreated cultures The data from this experiment was used to identify a candidate for further study as described in Szmidt et al 2013 Utilizing a highly responsive gene, yhjX, in E. coli based production of 1,4-Butanediol submitted to Chemical Engineering Science 4x72k E.coli gene expression microarrays were used to study the genes that are differentialy expressed in the strain DH1 grown in defined medoin and exposed to 6% 1,4 Butanediol for one hour at mid-log growth stage.
Project description:Up-regulation of motility genes and biosynthesis genes were found in the pck expressing high ATP cell by transcriptome analysis while catabolism genes were down-regulated. Keywords: response depends on intracellular ATP concentration derived by pck or ppc overexpression 1. pck or ppc overexpressing E. coli at early log phase using glucose-minimal medium 2. pck or ppc overexpressing E. coli at chemostat culture (D=0.1 h-1)using LB-glucose medium
Project description:We have examined and compared the transcriptome of T. reesei growing on wheat straw and lactose as carbon sources under otherwise similar conditions. Gene expression on wheat straw exceeded that on lactose, and 1619 genes were found to be only induced on wheat straw but not on lactose. They comprised 30 % of the CAZome, but were also enriched in genes associated with phospholipid metabolism, DNA synthesis and repair and iron homeostatis. Two thirds of the CAZome was expressed both on wheat straw as well as on lactose, but 60 % of it at least >2-fold higher on the former. Major wheat straw specific genes comprised xylanases, chitinases and ß-mannosidases. Interestingly, the latter two CAZyme families were significantly higher expressed in a strain in which xyr1 encoding the major regulator of cellulase and hemicellulase biosynthesis is non-functional, demonstrating that XYR1 is a repressor of these genes. We used two biological replicas of four T. reesei strains growing on glucose, lactose, and on wheat straw
