Project description:In the silkworm, Bombyx mori, juvenile hormone (JH) and 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E) levels are high during the final larval molt (4M) but both absent during the feeding stage of 5th instar (5F), while JH level is low and 20E level is high during the prepupal stage (PP). Fat body is the important organs in insect, we want to find out differentially expressed genes which are respectively regulated by the two hormones. Total RNA from 4th molting,5th feeding and prepupa stages Bombyx fat body were used to generate target cDNA, and then hybridized to 48k Bombyx genome Array Genechips, representing about 23000 characterized genes
Project description:To explore the molecular mechanisms of obesity and insulin resistance in the patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) at the level of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs).Three PCOS-derived and one non-PCOS-derived hESC lines were induced into adipocytes, and then total mRNA was extracted from these adipocytes. The differential genes between PCOS-derived and non-PCOS-derived adipocytes were identified with GeneChip, and then were validated with real-time PCR.There were 153 differential genes. Of the 153 genes, 91 genes were up-regulated and 62 down-regulated. Nuclear receptor subfamily 0, group B, member 2 (NR0B2) was an up-regulated gene, and GeneChip software system indicated that it was associated with obesity and diabetes. Three PCOS-derived and one non-PCOS-derived hESC lines were induced into adipocytes, and then total mRNA was extracted from these adipocytes. The differential genes between PCOS-derived and non-PCOS-derived adipocytes were identified with GeneChip, and then were validated with real-time PCR.
Project description:We found PML was responsible for ATO resistance in HCC cells, PML knockdown cells show better sensitivity to ATO treatment. To further explore the mechanism of PML-induced ATO resistance, we performed a microarray assay to compare the differential gene expression profiles of PML-siRNA-treated (PML knockdown) and negative control siRNA-treated cells. Two-condition experiment, PML-siRNA vs. control cells. Biological replicates: two cell lines and each cell line has 1 control, 1 transfected, independently grown and harvested. One replicate per array. Comparisons were made between PML siRNA group and control group for each cell line
Project description:Safrole oxide (SFO) at 50 μg/ml could most effectively induce EndoMT within 12 h. Transcriptional profiling of control and SFO-treated Human umbilical vascular endothelial cells was analyzed to understand the underlying molecular mechanism Two groups were used. One is control group, the other is SFO treatment group. 6 dishes of cells in each group were used for microarray analysis.
Project description:Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) is one of the world's most important cereal crops. S. propinquum is a perennial wild relative of S. bicolor with well-developed rhizomes. Functional genomics analysis of S. propinquum, especially with respect to molecular mechanisms related to rhizome growth and development, can contribute to the development of more sustainable grain, forage, and bioenergy cropping systems. In this study, we used a whole rice genome oligonucleotide microarray to obtain tissue-specific gene expression profiles of S. propinquum with special emphasis on rhizome development. A total of 548 tissue-enriched genes were detected, including 31 and 114 unique genes that were predominantly expressed in the rhizome tips (RT) and internodes (RI), respectively. Further GO analysis indicated that the functions of these tissue-enriched genes corresponded to their characteristic biological processes. A few distinct cis-elements, including ABA-responsive RY repeat CATGCA, sugar-repressive TTATCC, and GA-responsive TAACAA, were found to be prevalent in RT-enriched genes, implying an important role in rhizome growth and development. Comprehensive comparative analysis of these rhizome-enriched genes and rhizome-specific genes previously identified in S. propinquum indicated that phytohormones, including ABA, GA, and SA, are key regulators of gene expression during rhizome development. Co-localization of rhizome-enriched genes with rhizome-related QTLs in rice and sorghum generated functional candidates for future cloning of genes associated with rhizome growth and development. In conclusion, a whole rice genome oligonucleotide microarray was used to profile gene expression across five tissues of the perennial wild sorghum S. propinquum. Expression patterns of the five tissues were consistent with the different functions of each organ, and RT- and RI-enriched genes revealed clues regarding molecular mechanisms of rhizome development. Plant hormones, including ABA, GA, and SA, function as key regulators of rhizome gene expression and development. To shed further light on the identities of rhizome-specific genes, rhizome-enriched candidates were identified using QTL co-localization and comparative analysis. In this study, the specific gene expression patterns across five tissues, including rhizome tip (RT, distal 1 cm of the young rhizome), rhizome internodes (RI), shoot tip (ST, distal 5 mm of the tiller after removing all leaves), shoot internodes (SI) and young leaf (YL) in Sorghum propinquum, especially in the rhizome, were characterized by using a rice genome array. Three independent biological replicates for each tissue from individual plants were performed. The reference was equivalent to a mix of the 5 tissues.

Project description:Many long noncoding RNAs are involved in cancer development and progression. Here, we utilized high-throughput microarray to compare the expression difference of transcriptome between the LINC01225 stable knockdown SMCC7721 cells and mock empty plasmid treated SMCC7721 cells; the LINC01225 stable knockdown MHCC97H cells and mock empty plasmid treated MHCC97H cells. These altered genes are involved in tumorigenesis through diverse mechanisms. The present study reveals that LINC01225 functions as a tumor promoter in Hepatocellular Carcinoma. LINC01225 stable knockdown cells were compared to mock empty plasmid treated cells. In addition expression of genes in untreated SMCC7721 cells was detected, we performed a comparison between mock empty plasmid treated SMCC7721 cells and untreated SMCC7721 cells to determine that no confounding factors were brought in. The Agilent human lncRNA+mRNA Array V4.0 were used to perform the analysis.
Project description:The data is supplementary to the RNA-seq analysis of LPS and palmitate stimulation of THP-1 macrophages (E-MTAB-6064), where palmitate for the cell treatment was dissolved in sodium hydroxide and coupled with BSA at a molar ratio 7.5:1. Here we stimulated THP-1 macrophages with the corresponding concentration of BSA (4%) and NaOH (0.4 mM) in the presence of 10 nM phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) for 24 hours added to the standard RPMI 1640 medium with 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS) to estimate the effects and compared them with unstimulated THP-1 macrophages cultured in RPMI 1640 medium with 10% FBS and 10nM PMA.
Project description:We analysed the capacity of THP-1 cells (differentiated to macrophagoid cells) to recognize RNA sequences via pattern recognition receptors in vitro. Gene expression was analysed by RNA-Microarray. Cytokine production was analysed by ELISA assays. We used microarrays to investigate differential gene expression in THP-1 cell line undifferentiated in comparison with 3 days or 8 days differentiated with phorbol myristate acetate (PMA). Microarray analysis revealed differential gene expression patterns of THP-1 when differentiated. THP-1 cells, undifferentiated, 3 days PMA-differentiated and 8 days PMA-differentiated
