Gene expression profile of p16-induced senescence in normal human diploid fibroblasts.
ABSTRACT: Transcriptional profiling of p16-induced senescent human diploid fibroblasts compared with proliferating cells. TIG-3 ER-p16 cells (primary normal human diploid fibroblasts expressing a 4-hydroxytamoxifen(4-OHT) regulatable form of human p16) were cultured for 7 days with or without 4-OHT. Total RNA was isolated using TRIzol reagent and were analyzed using the hum

Project description:Analysis of gene expression profile in Ras-induced senescent human diploid fibroblasts with or without depletion of fzr1/cdh1. Results provide insight into the effect on fzr1/cdh1 on the regulation of senescence-associated gene expression in human diploid fibroblasts. IMR-90-ER:Ras cells were cultured for 6 days with or without 4-hydroxytamoxifen (OHT) and were subsequently subjected to transfection with siRNA oligos against fzr1/cdh1 or control for three times (at 2 day intervals). Total RNA was isolated using Trizol reagent and were analyzed using the human 3D-Gene DNA chip (Toray) which that contains 25000 genes. The genome wide transcriptional response of proliferating cells (IMR si control2) and fzr1/cdh1 depleted senescent cells (IMR+OHT si cdh1) were compared to that of senescent cells (IMR+OHT si control).
Project description:Transcriptional profiling of normal human diploid fibroblasts(TIG-3) comparing late passage with early passage. Total RNA was isolated using TRIzol reagent and were analyzed using the human 3D-Gene DNA chip (Toray) that contains 25000 genes. The genome wide transcriptional response of senescent cells(more than 70 population doublings)(Replicative) were compared to that of proliferating cells(less than 40 population doublings)(Young).

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: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:Recent studies have demonstrated that micro (mi)RNA molecules can be detected in the circulation and can serve as potential biomarkers of various diseases. This study used microarray analysis to identify aberrantly expressed circulating miRNAs in patients with type 1 autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) compared with healthy controls. Patients with well-documented and untreated AIH were selected from the National Hospital Organization (NHO)-AIH-liver-network database. They underwent blood sampling and liver biopsy with inflammation grading and fibrosis staging before receiving treatment. To further confirm the microarray data, circulating expression levels of miR-21 and miR-122 were quantified by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction in 46 AIH patients, 40 patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC), and 15 healthy controls. Consistent with the microarray data, serum levels of miR-21 were significantly elevated in AIH patients compared with CHC patients and healthy controls. miR-21 and miR-122 serum levels correlated with alanine aminotransferase levels. Circulating levels of miR-21 and miR-122 were significantly reduced in AIH patients with liver cirrhosis, and were inversely correlated with increased stages of fibrosis. By contrast, levels of circulating miR-21 showed a significant correlation with the histological grades of inflammation in AIH. We postulate that aberrantly expressed serum miRNAs are potential biomarkers of AIH and could be implicated in AIH pathogenesis. Alternations of miR-21 and miR-122 serum levels could reflect their putative roles in the mediation of inflammatory processes in AIH. Case-control study, steroid treatment
