OBJECTIVE: Alterations in DNA methylation patterns have been found to correlate with several diseases including osteoarthritis (OA). The aim of this study was to identify, for the first time, the genome-wide DNA methylation profiles of human articular chondrocytes from OA cartilage and healthy control cartilage samples. METHODS: DNA methylation profiling was performed using Illumina Infinium HumanMethylation27 in 25 patients with OA and 20 healthy controls. Subsequent validation was performed by ...[more]
Project description:The aim of this study is to identify, for the first time, the genome-wide DNA methylation profiles of human articular chondrocytes from OA and healtly cartilage samples. A subsequent validation of methylation profiles were performed in an idependent cohort of OA samples with Affymetrix Hugene 1.1 st array This represents the gene expression component of the study only OA gene expression profiling was performed with Affymetrix Human Gene 1.1 st array was performed in and independent cohort of 23 OA patients
Project description:The aim of this study is to identify, for the first time, the genome-wide DNA methylation profiles of human articular chondrocytes from OA and healtly cartilage samples. Genome wide DNA methylation profiling of normal and osteoarthritic samples. The Illumina Infinium 27k Human DNA methylation Beadchip v1.2 was used to obtain DNA methylation profiles across approximately 27,000 CpGs in cartilage knee samples. Samples included 18 healthy controls and 23 OA patients. Bisulphite converted DNA from the 31 samples were hybridised to the Illumina Infinium 27k Human Methylation Beadchip v1.2
Project description:Peripheral blood lymphocytes were separated in the Ficoll gradient and subjected for stimulation with anti-CD3 and anti-CD28 antiobodies upon time (6h, 12h and 18h). Next, total RNA was isolated and trenscriptional analysis of stimulated cells was performed. 11 total samples were analysed. Analysis was performed using samples from two healthy donors and one sample from patient. Unstimulated samples were used as a controls.
Project description:Human articular chondrocytes were isolated from normal or osteoarthritic tissue. RNA decay was measured across the transcriptome in these cells by microarray analysis following an actinomycin D chase for 0, 1, 3 and 5 hours. Normalisation was conducted by quantile normalising each set of four decay curve points (i.e. 0, 1, 3 and 5 hour samples for a given donor's cells) independently of the other data. This meant that each decay curve is normalised independently of the others.
Project description:The objective of this experiment was to determine global gene expression change in triple negative cell line upon knockdown of TGFBR3. Genotype specific differences in expression profiles have been evaluated using human HuGene1.0-ST affymetrix array. RNA was extracted from SUM159 controls and SUM159 TGFBR3KD cells cultured in 3-dimensional in vitro system. Control (N=3) and TGFBR3KD (N=3) samples were hybridized to the Human gene 1.0 ST array, scanned with Affymetrix using AGCC v. 3.2.4 and then analyzed in R 3.0.1 using the oligo package.
Project description:Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) is propagated by cancer stem cells which are identified by their ability to efflux dye and hence reside in the side population (SP) on FACS analysis. In order to understand the origins of these ALCL SP cells we purified SP and main population (MP; SP-depleted) cell from the ALCL cell line SUDHL-1. On comparison of the gene expression signatures derived from these 2 cellular populations distinct branches dividing the SP and MP populations present indicating that they are distinct subsets within the bulk tumour. We sought to obtain pure populations of SP and MP cells from human SUDHL-1 Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) cell line. SUDHL-1 cells were stained with Hoechst 33342 dye, analysed using MoFlo Cell Sorter with UV lasers. The cells were then sorted in triplicates and subjected to RNA extraction. The extracted RNA was subjected to gene expression microarray using the Affymetrix Human Gene 1.0 ST Array.
Project description:CD4+ T cells, CD8+ T cells, CD14+ monocytes, and CD16+ neutrophils from the peripheral blood of 5 healthy individuals were isolated and their ex vivo transcriptomic profiles measured.
Project description:The transcription factor BACH1 is a master regulator of human breast cancer metastasis. Here we use gene expression array analysis to identify and compare the genes regulated by BACH1 depletion in a metastatic human breast cancer cell line. Total RNAs were extracted from vector control 1833 cells or 1833 cells with shBACH mRNA BACH1 depletion. Affymetrix GeneChip Human Gene 1.0 ST Arrays were performed to detail the gene expression and identify the genes regulated by BACH1in metastatic human breast cancer cells.
Project description:The first bona fide PTP proto-oncogene was the Src-homology 2 domain-containing phosphatase SHP2 (encoded by PTPN11), an ubiquitously expressed PTP that transduces mitogenic, pro-survival, cell fate and/or pro-migratory signals from numerous growth factor-, cytokine- and extracellular matrix receptors. In malignancies, SHP2 is hyperactivated either downstream of oncoproteins or by mutations.We provide analysis of the breast cancer cells BT474 grown as xenografts in the presence or absence of SHP2 for 30 days. The HER2-postive breast cancer cell line BT474 was transduced with a doxycycline-inducible lentiviral vector expressing a CTRL miR or SHP2 miR1 or SHP2 miR2. Cells from each group were injected in imuunodeficinet mice and after tumor development, the knockdown of SHP2 was induced for 30 days in vivo. At day 30, tumors were dissected and RNA isolated for gene expression analysis.
