Project description:ChIP-Seq for H3K4me3 and H3K27me3 in wild type spleens and spleens from mice having deletion of RBP-J in cells of the renin lineage, which results in B-cell leukemia. Examination of 2 different histone modifications in wild type and mutant spleens.
Project description:Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer death. Genome sequencing of lung tumors from patients with Squamous Cell Carcinoma has identified SMAD4 to be frequently mutated. Here we used a novel mouse model to determine the molecular mechanisms regulated by loss of Smad4 which lead to lung cancer progression. Mice with ablation of Pten and Smad4 in airway epithelium developed metastatic adenosquamous tumors. Comparative transcriptomic and in vivo cistromic analyses determined that loss of PTEN and SMAD4 resulted in activation of the ELF3 and the ErbB2 pathway due to decreased ERRFI1’s expression, a negative regulator of ERBB2 in mice and human cells. The combinatorial inhibition of ErbB2 and Akt signaling attenuated tumor progression and cell invasion, respectively. Expression profiles analysis of human lung tumors substantiated the importance of the ErbB2/Akt/ELF3 signaling pathway as both prognostic biomarkers and therapeutic drug targets for treating lung cancer. Examination of genome-wide SMAD4 binding in 7-month-old Ptend/d mouse lung.
Project description:Using genetically engineered mice, overexpressing SRC-2, specifically in the prostate epithelium of PTEN heterozygous mice accelerates PTEN mutation induce tumor progression and develops a metastasis-prone cancer. Here we used ChIP-Seq analysis to identify genome-wide SRC-2 binding sites in mouse prostate. Examination of genome-wide SRC-2 binding in mouse prostate by ChIP-seq analysis. Samples were collected from pooled dorsal-lateral prostates of 7 months old-PTEN flox/+; Rosa26-SRC-2 OE/+ mice. Flash frozen tissues were then sent to Active Motif, Inc. for chromatin extraction and followed by immunoprecipitation using anti-SRC-2 antibody (A300-346A, Bethyl Lab., Inc.).
Project description:Progesterone (P) acting through its cognate nuclear receptors (PRs) plays an essential role in driving pregnancy-associated branching morphogenesis of the mammary gland. However, the fundamental mechanisms, including global cistromic and acute genomic transcriptional responses that are required to elicit active branching morphogenesis in response to P, have not been elucidated. We used chromatin immunoprecipitation followed by deep sequencing (ChIP-seq) to identify P-regulated genes that directly recruit PRs in the mouse mammary gland after acute P treatment. Two replicate PR ChIP samples and two replicate input DNA control samples from mouse mammary glands after mice are treated subcutaneously with 17β-Estradiol for 24 hours and then 17β-Estradiol plus Progesterone for 6 hours.
Project description:Aberrant expression of SOX9 in human colorectal cancer cells suggests its roles in the development of colorectal cancer. To gain insight into SOX9-mediated transcriptional regulation in colorectal cancer cells, we attempted to identify its physiological targets on a genome-scale using chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) followed by sequencing (ChIP-seq) in HT-29, human colorectal cancer cells. SOX9 CHIP-seq was carried out using HT-29 cells.
Project description:The role of Gata2 in regulating uterine function including fertility, implantation, decidualization and P4 signaling in the mouse was investigated by the conditional ablation of Gata2 in the uterus using the (PR-cre) mouse and ChIP-seq for in vivo GATA2 binding sites in the murine uterus upon acute P4 administration. Gata2 gene ablation was confirmed by real-time PCR analysis in the PR-cre; Gata2fl/fl (termed Gata2d/d) uterus. While littermate controls are fertile, Gata2d/d females are completely infertile. Analysis of the infertility indicates that implantation does not occur, and the uterine stroma is incapable of undergoing the decidual reaction to support further embryonic development. Measure of P4 target genes including PR itself indicate a block in P4 target gene induction and that Gata2 regulates PR expression directly. Microarray analysis demonstrates that ablation of Gata2 leads to specific gene changes, including disruption of the Wnt signaling pathway, Progesterone receptor (PR) signaling, and Ihh signaling pathway. In addition we identified 46,183 GATA2 binding sites in P4 treatment conditions with 7,954 binding sites overlapping that of the PR.Taken together, these data demonstrate that Gata2 is a critical regulator of gene expression and function in the murine uterus.
Project description:Progesterone (P4) signaling through its nuclear transcription factor, the progesterone receptor (PR), is essential for normal uterine function. Although deregulation of PR mediated signaling is known to underscore uterine dysfunction and a number of endometrial pathologies, the early molecular mechanisms of this deregulation are unclear. To address this issue, we have defined the genome-wide PR and GATA2 cistrome in the murine uterus using chromatin immunoprecipitation followed by massively parallel sequencing (ChIP-seq). In uteri of ovariectomized mice, we identified 6367 PR binding sites in the absence of P4 ligand; however, this number increased at nearly three fold (18,432) following acute P4 exposure. Sequence analysis revealed that approximately 73% of these binding sites contain a progesterone response element (PRE) or a half-site motif recognized by the PR. Many previously identified P4 target genes known to regulate uterine function were found to contain PR binding sites, confirming the validity of our methodology. In addition we identified 46,183 GATA2 binding sites in P4 treatment conditions with 7,954 binding sites overlapping that of the PR.
