Canine hemangiosarcoma tissues, monolayer- and sphere-cultured cells
ABSTRACT: Cell lines and tumor tissues from canine hemangiosarcoma derived cell lines and hemangiosarcoma tissue samples Identification of three molecular and functional subtypes in canine hemangiosarcoma through gene expression profiling
Project description:Zebrafish embryo were analyzed at 30 and 60 % epiboly for changes in transcriptome of wild-type and MTspg mutant embryos The Data are used as an independent experimental validation of data obtained for the same stages by Agilent arrays in the main experiments (especially Exp. 1) Experiments were performed in biological duplicate. Genedata Expressionist Analyst was used for comparison betwen MZspg and WT gene expression levels at each stage
Project description:The objective of this study was to compare the transcriptomes of uninfected DH82 cells, a canine histiocytic sarcoma cell line, with DH82 cells, persistently infected with the Onderstepoort strain of canine distemper virus in order to identify effects of canine distemper virus infection upon the transcriptome of this tumor cell line and hereby draw conclusions on possible paramyxovirus-induced oncolytic mechanisms
Project description:Many flowering plants attract pollinators by offering a reward of floral nectar. Remarkably, the molecular events involved in the development of nectaries, the organs that produce nectar, as well as the synthesis and secretion of nectar itself, are poorly understood. Indeed, to date, no genes have been shown to directly affect the de novo production or quality of floral nectar. To address this gap in knowledge, the ATH1 Affymetrix GeneChip array was used to systematically investigate the Arabidopsis nectary transcriptome to identify genes and pathways potentially involved in nectar production. In this study, we identified a large number of genes differentially expressed between secretory lateral nectaries and non-secretory median nectary tissues, as well as between mature lateral nectaries (post-anthessis) and immature lateral nectary tissue (pre-anthesis). Three different types of RNA samples were prepared from Arabidopsis thaliana ecotype Columbia-0 nectaries: mature lateral nectaries (MLN; Stage 14-15 flowers), immature lateral nectaries (ILN, Stage 11-12 flowers), and mature median nectaries (MMN, Stage 14-15 flowers) [developmental stages defined by (Smyth et al., 1990)]. MLN are secretory tissues, whereas, ILN and MMN are pre-secretory and nonsecretory tissues, respectively. All nectary tissues were separately dissected by hand from the flowers of primary inflorescences of ca. 30-35 day-old plants. All plants were grown in soil with a 16h light/8h dark light regimen. Due to the small size of nectaries, dissections took place over several days from 4-8 hours after dawn (h.a.d.).
Project description:Isolation and enrichment of cancer stem cells in colorectal carcinoma to study role of epithelial-mesenchymal transition regilators in tumor malignancy. Experiment Overall Design: Genome-wide comparision in sphere cells and parental control cells revealed potential regulators involved tumor malignancy . Experiment Overall Design: Overexpression of these key regulators drafted cellular context toward therapy resistance
Project description:Molecular mechanisms of the canine mammary malignancy. RNA isolated from canine mammary tumours of the 3rd grade of malignancy was pooled and hybrydized on the same microarray as RNA isolated from canine mammary tumours of the 1st grade of malignancy. Based on the results the "malignancy portrait" was assessed. Dye-swap experiment, gene expression in the most malignant canine mammary tumours (the 3rd grade of malignancy) was compared to the less malignant tumours (1st grade of malignancy).
Project description:Degenerative myelopathy (DM) is a canine disease very similar to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in humans. We previously showed that DM is a promising model for ALS, as genome-wide association identified a mutation in SOD1, a known ALS gene. In this study, we identify a modifier gene, SP110, which strongly affects overall disease risk and age-of-onset in Pembroke Welsh corgis at risk of DM. Dissecting the complex genetics of this disease in a model organism may lead to new insights about risk and progression in both canine and human patients. 15 DM-affected and 10 unaffected Boxers homozygous for SOD1 mutation genotyped using the Illumina CanineHD array (~170,000 SNPs genomewide)

Project description:Comparison of gene expression changes in safener- or BF-treated wild type (Col0) or mutants (tga2tga3tga5tga6, sid2-2) of the salicylic acid signaling pathway. Measurements of three biological samples were prepared for each genotype.
Project description:Bronchoalveolar lavage samples collected from lung transplant recipients. Numeric portion of sample name is an arbitrary patient ID and AxBx number indicates the perivascular (A) and bronchiolar (B) scores from biopsies collected on the same day as the BAL fluid was collected. Several patients have more than one sample in this series and can be determined by patient number followed by a lower case letter. Acute rejection state is determined by the combined A and B score - specifically, a combined AB score of 2 or greater is considered an acute rejection.
Project description:The Italian island of Sardinia is well known in studies of human population isolates. It is also home to the Fonni's Dog, a breed of canine whose development was reliant on the functionality of the dog. Using genome-wide variant and sequence analyses, we have characterized the Fonni's Dog relative to 27 other dog breeds from the Mediterranean region. We determine introgression events relevant to Mediterranean breed development and describe how the Fonni's dog presents an intriguing model demonstrating the characteristics of traditional human population isolates and, in particular, exhibiting the unique demographic composition of the people of Sardinia. 82 canine samples representing 9 dog breeds
