Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs): Control vs. PTH-stimulated
ABSTRACT: Transcriptional profiling of human MSCs comparing control MSCs with parathyroid hormone (PTH)-stimulated MSCs. PTH-stimulated MSCs were treated with 0.1 nM recombinant human PTH (N-terminal fragment, amino acids 1-34) for 48 hours. Human MSCs were isolated from a bone marrow sample obtained from a healthy adult volunteer. Two-condition experiment: control MSCs vs. PTH-stimulated MSCs. 1 control MSCs and 1 PTH-stimulated MSCs.
Project description:To identify molecular biomarkers that are useful for diagnosis and its targeting treatment, we analysed expression profile of synovial sarcoma tissue. In the present study, we studied gene expression profiles comparing 11 cases of synovial sarcoma.
Project description:To identify molecular biomakers that are useful for diagnosis and its targeting treatment, we compared the gene expression profile of myxiod liposarcoma with that of normal fat tissue. In the present study, we studied about gene expression profiles comparing 6 non-preoperative myxoid liposarcoma with 3 normal fat tissue.
Project description:Class Switch Recombination (CSR) is a B cell specific genomic alteration induced by activation induced cytidine deaminase (AID)-dependent DNA break, followed by repair and recombination at the immunoglobulin heavy-chain locus. The involvement of several chromatin-associated factors in promoting AID-induced DNA break formation has been reported. However, the involvement of chromatin adaptors at the repair phase of CSR remains unknown. Here, we provide evidence that acetylated histone reader Brd4 is critical to the repair and recombination step of CSR. Brd4 was recruited to the AID-induced DNA break region, and depletion of Brd4 from the S region chromatin by knockdown or a chemical inhibitor JQ1 causes CSR impairment without affecting AID-induced DNA break generation. Such inhibition of Brd4 suppressed the accumulation of 53BP1 and UNG at the cleaved S regions, perturbed switch donor-switch acceptor microhomology length and reduced Igh/c-myc translocation. We conclude that Brd4 serves as a histone-reader platform required for the recruitment of CSR repair components. Brd4 were depleted from the chromatin by either siRNA treatment or JQ1 (40nM) addition in CH12F3-2A cells in the presence of CIT stimulation. RNA from each samples were extracted and relative difference in transcript level were compared with control RNAi- and DMSO-treated, CIT-stimulated samples.
Project description:Comprehensive gene expression analysis in BM-resident stromal cells was performed for an overview of BM environmental change caused by total body irradiation (TBI). Total RNA samples collected from BM-resident stromal cells with or without TBI were subjected to high sensitivity DNA microarray assays Three-condition experiment: Unirradiated, 1 day after TBI and 3 days after TBI. Bone marrow stromal cells were obtained from C57BL/6 mice (n = 6) either non-irradiated or after 9.5 Gy irradiation at indicated times.
Project description:The change of mRNA expression in murine immortalized podocyte were analyzed after miR-26a silencing. These results provide a basical information of molecular pathology in podocyte biology. Mouse podocytes immortalized by temperature sensitive SV40 were used. Podocyte cultures grown at 33 °C were trypsinized and then cultured with RPMI-1640 without antibiotics in 24-well plates at 60–70% confluence for 2 days. On day 3, an anti-miR negative control (40 pmol) or the miR-26a miRNA inhibitor (40 pmol) was transfected to podocytes. The cells were analyzed after culturing for 24 hour.
Project description:Transcriptional profiling of left ventricular tissues of Dahl rat with or without treatment of chaetocin Three-condition experiment, Control vs. failing heart, failing heart vs. treatment with chaetocin. 3 samples mixture per each group
Project description:Transcriptional profiling of mouse osteoclasts comparing control osteoclasts from Stat5 flox mice with osteoclasts from Stat5 cKO mice. Two-condition experiment, Stat5 flox cells vs. Stat5 cKO cells
Project description:To elucidate the molecular features of craniofacial versus trunk neural crest cells (NCCs), we utilized P0-Cre/Floxed-EGFP mice that specifically label NCCs (Yamauchi et al., 1999 (PMID 10419695)). Craniofacial and trunk regions were isolated from P0-Cre/Floxed-EGFP mouse embryos at embryonic day E12.5, and dissociated cells were analyzed by flow cytometory in regard to the intensity of EGFP. In this study, we performed at least duplicate experiments for each of the four groups (Craniofacial EGFP+, Trunk EGFP+, Craniofacial EGFP-, Trunk EGFP-). Total of 9 samples.
Project description:Transcriptional profiling of human HepG2 cells comparing control DMSO-treated cells with K7174-treated cell Two-condition experiment, DMSO-HepG2 vs. K7174-HepG2 cells. Biological replicates: 1 control, 1 treated, independently grown and harvested. One replicate per array.
Project description:Transcriptional profiling of mouse ES cell-derived hemaopoitic cells comparing common primitive-definitive hematopoietic precursors (CD41SP) with definitve hematopoietic progenitor cells (KA45) RNA isolated from two separate experiments was pooled and used for comparison
