Gene expression of HEK 293 cells transfected with Vector (PCMV), Aire, or MBD-VP16
ABSTRACT: HEK 293 cells were transiently transfected with plasmids expressing Vector only(PCMV), Aire, or MBD-VP16 with the goal of comparing the global gene expression profiles in the Aire and MBD-VP16 groups We used microarrays to detail the global gene expression profile. HEK 293 cells were transiently transfected with plasmids expressing Vector only(PCMV), Aire, or MBD-VP16 and 72 hrs post transfection total RNA was collected for microarray analysis.
Project description:The aim of this study is to discover genes regulated by miR-204. Differential gene expression in HEK-293 cells transfected with miR-204-mimic compared to HEK-293 cells transfected with control oligo (HEK-293 control) was analyzed using the Agilent Human Whole Genome 4x44K gene expression array (Agilent Technologies, Santa Clara, CA). HEK-293 cells were transfected with either miR-204 or a control, and gene expression was analyzed using the Agilent Human Whole Genome 4x44K array. A dye-swap was performed.
Project description:This series of microarray experiments monitored the gene expression profiles for monoclonal cell lines (derived from HEK-293 parental cell culture) with high (H1, H15, H24, H36, H39) or low (L3, L28, L29) levels of store-operated Ca2+ entry (SOCE). For selection of clones, HEK-293 cells were loaded with indo-1 and sorted by FACS on the basis of their cyclopiazonic acid (CPA)-stimulated Ca2+ entry. Monoclonal cell lines were selected from the sorted cells and their levels of SOCE confirmed by monitoring thapsigargin-stimulated Ba2+ entry. Total RNA was extracted from cells immediately after removal from their growth environment. RNA was processed and hybridized to the Affymetrix HG-U133A chip. Two parallel hybridizations were done for each RNA preparation from each monoclonal cell line or from the parental HEK-293 cell culture.
Project description:HEK 293 cells with or without overexpression of ICER IIg were treated with forskolin for 0, 1 h, 2 h, 4 h or 8 h. The cell line used in the experiments is HEK 293 cells stable transfected with tetracycline-inducible ICER (Inducible cAMP early repressor) expression.
Project description:PBDEs are widely used in consumer and household products as flame retardants. Many studies have shown that PBDEs could disrupt thyroid hormone homeostasis and adversely affect brain development. Here, we explored the toxical effects of BDE209 on HEK 293 cells and found that BDE209 may have a role in nucleosome remodeling. Many gene sets involved in cancer are enriched at the BDE209-treated sample. This indicates the carcinogenicity of BDE209. Interestingly, the impacts of BDE209 dissoved in DMSO on gene expression are more pronounced than the simple additive effects of BDE209 and DMSO alone. Gene expression profiles of human embryonic kidney 293 cells (HEK 293) cultured in normal medium, and medium containing BDE209 or DMSO were generated by deep sequencing, using Illumina HighSeq2000, respectively..
Project description:To obtain evidence that Argonaute (AGO) crosslink-centered regions (CCRs) indeed contain functional miRNA-binding sites, we blocked 25 of the most abundant miRNAs in HEK 293 cells (Figure 5C of PMID 20371350) by transfection of a cocktail of 2'-O-methyl-modified antisense oligoribonucleotides and monitored the changes in mRNA stability by microarrays (Figure 7A of PMID 20371350). Consistent with previous studies of individual miRNAs (Grimson et al., 2007), the magnitude of the destabilization effects of transcripts containing at least one CCR depended on the length of the seed-complementary region and dropped from 9-mer to 8-mer to 7-mer to 6-mer matches (Figure 7B of PMID 20371350). We did not find evidence for significant destabilization of transcripts that only contained imperfectly paired seed regions. The top 25 expressed miRNAs expressed in HEK 293 cells were inhibited by transfection of a cocktail of 25 antisense 2'-O-Me oligoribonucleotides and the gene expression was compared to mock-transfected cells.
Project description:Bisphenol A (BPA) is an environmental endocrine disruptor which has been detected in almost all human bodies. Many studies have implied that BPA exposure is harmful to human health. Previous studies mainly focused on BPA effects on ER-positive cells. Genome-wide impact of BPA on gene regulation in ER-negative cells is unclear. In the present study, we performed RNA-seq to characterize BPA-induced gene regulation on ER-negative HEK 293 cells.
Project description:To assess whether the transcripts identified by PAR-CLIP are regulated by the RNA-binding protein (RBP) Quaking (QKI), we analyzed the mRNA levels of mock-transfected and QKI-specific siRNA-transfected cells with microarrays. Transcripts crosslinked to QKI were significantly upregulated upon siRNA transfection, indicating that QKI negatively regulates bound mRNAs (Figure 3H of PMID 20371350), consistent with previous reports of QKI being a repressor. The RBP QKI was depleted by siRNAs and the expression level was compared to mock-transfected HEK 293 cells.
Project description:A time course of infection of the alphavirus Sindbis virus (SINV) was used to investigate the presence of viral specific vsRNA and the changes in miRNAs profiles in human embryonic kidney 293 cells (HEK293) by high throughput DNA sequencing. Deep sequencing of small RNAs early in SINV infection (4 and 6 hpi) showed low abundance (0.8%) of viral specific RNAs (vsRNAs) , with a random uniform distribution not typical of Dicer products, suggesting they arise from non-specific degradation. Sequencing showed little variation of cellular microRNAs (miRNAs) at 4 and 6 hpi compared to uninfected cells. Twelve miRNAs exhibiting some minor differential expression by sequencing, showed insignificant modulation by Northern blot analysis. RNA was isolated from mock infected and SINV inoculated HEK 293 cells at 4hpi and 6hpi cDNA libraries were generated for the small RNA (sRNA) content of the cells and sequenced using Illumina GA II, which yielded between 29.1M and 30.5M reads per sample
Project description:To test the influence of IGF2BPs on the stability of their interacting mRNAs, as reported previously for some targets (Yisraeli, 2005), we simultaneously depleted all three IGF2BP family members using siRNAs and compared the cellular RNA from knockdown and mock-transfected cells on microarrays. The levels of transcripts identified by PAR-CLIP decreased in IGF2BP-depleted cells, indicating that IGF2BP proteins stabilize their target mRNAs. Moreover, transcripts that yielded clusters with the highest T to C mutation frequency were most destabilized (Figure 4G of PMID 20371350), indicating that the ranking criterion that we derived based on the analysis of PUM2 and QKI data generalizes to other RNA-binding proteins (RBPs). The RBPs IGF2BP1-3 were depleted by siRNAs and the expression level was compared to mock-transfected HEK 293 cells.
