Gene Expression Profiling on Stably Expressing ICD JM-a CYT-1 or CYT-2 ERBB4 isoforms in MCF10A cells
ABSTRACT: Convergent and divergent effects of two ICD ERBB4 isoforms on gene expression in normal-like MCF10A mammary epithelial cells lacking endogeneous ERBB4 expression. Control vector (VEC) and ERBB4 expression MCF10A cells (ICD CYT1 or CYT2) maintained in regular medium containing 10% serum, were collected and RNA samples were collected and analyzed.
Project description:Convergent and divergent effects of two FL ERBB4 isoforms on gene expression in normal-like MCF10A mammary epithelial cells lacking endogeneous ERBB4 expression. Control vector (VEC) and ERBB4 expression MCF10A cells(CYT1 or CYT2) were serum starved for 48 hours and incubated with or without ERBB4 ligand NRG1 for 2h. RNA samples were collected and analyzed.

Project description:Transient transfection of activated Notch1 (Notch1-ICD) decreases cellular proliferation and reduces the expression of a subset of neuroendocrine genes. We used microarrays to identify the gene expression changes 48 hours after overexpression of Notch1-ICD. mSCLC cells transfected with Notch1-ICD-ires-GFP were FACS sorted for GFP+ cells 48 hours after transfection. RNA was then extracted and hybridized to Affymetrix GeneChip® Mouse Gene 2.0 ST array.
Project description:Results of growing MCF10A cells continuously in serum free media supplemented with EGF (MCF10A) or AREG (MCF10A+AREG) followed by 24 hours of ligand withdrawl and measuring gene expression provides information as to what genes are regulated by AREG and EGF in a normal mammary epithelial cell model MCF10A cells continuously in serum free media supplemented with 10ng/ml of EGF (MCF10A) or 20ng/ml of AREG (MCF10A+AREG) followed by 24 hours of ligand withdrawl. Total RNA was collected and genome-wide analysis of expression was performed on RNA from each cell line.

Project description:Teneurins are large type II transmembrane proteins that are necessary for the normal development of the central nervous system (CNS). While many studies highlight the significance of teneurins, especially during development, there is only limited information known about the molecular mechanisms of function. Previous studies have shown that the N-terminal intracellular domain (ICD) of teneurins can be cleaved at the membrane and subsequently translocates to the nucleus where it can influence gene transcription. Target genes as well as mechanisms have yet to be elucidated, and thus we are investigating the transcriptional activity of the human teneurin-1 ICD in this study. For the whole transcriptome analysis of TEN1-ICD overexpression, we used a modified and improved tet-system. Two separate vectors are required to make the cell line stable. One contains the tet-activating domain fused to a glucocorticoid binding domain (GBD). The other contains the tetO operator sequences directly upstream of a CMV promoter and the gene to be overexpressed. BS149 cells were first transfected with pirtetR-GBD and made stable by Puromycin selection, and then after further transfection with either ptetO-eGFP-His (negative control) or ptetO-TEN1-ICD-eGFP-His by Hygromycin selection. The stable BS149 cell lines were split into three 10 cm Petri dishes each. The triplicate cell lines were cultured once before induction with Dexamethasone and Doxycycline. The overexpressing cells were then FACS-sorted directly into RLT lysis buffer (Qiagen) at a 3:1 volume ratio of lysis buffer to cells in PBS, 24 h post-induction.
Project description:Irritant contact dermatitis (ICD) is a non-immunological, cutaneous inflammatory response to a variety of triggers that requires no sensitization and accounts for up to 80% of occupational dermatitis cases. Numerous inflammatory cytokines play critical roles in the mechanism and severity of ICD, one being interleukin-6 (IL-6). Therefore, to investigate the influence of this pleotropic cytokine transcriptome analysis (MiSeq) was employed examining irritant-exposed and control skin samples from C57 and IL-6KO mice to gain a better understanding of the immunological mediators of ICD and what role IL-6 plays. Overall, this study offers new insight into the pathogenesis of ICD, indicates new mediators/markers that may influence the variability of responses to irritants and potential targets for therapeutic manipulation. Overall design: Examination of non-treated skin (C57 and IL-6KO, control samples), and 7 day BKC treated skin (C57-BKC and KO-BKC) in C57 and IL-6KO mouse skin. There are 3 replicates per group for a total of 12 samples and MiSeq analysis was performed.
Project description:We identified histidine triad nucleotide binding protein 1 (HINT1) as a human teneurin-1 ICD interaction partner in a yeast-2 hybrid screen. This interaction was confirmed in human cells, where HINT1 is known to inhibit the transcription of target genes by directly binding to transcription factors at the promoter. In a whole transcriptome analysis of BS149 glioblastoma cells overexpressing the teneurin-1 ICD, several microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (MITF) target genes were found to be up-regulated. Interestingly, MITF is one of the transcription factors inhibited by HINT1. Thus, we directly compare the transcriptomes of MITF versus TEN1-ICD overexpressing BS149 cells in this study, in order to reveal any co-regulated genes. For the whole transcriptome analysis of MITF, cells were transiently transfected in triplicates with either, pcDNA3.1-RFP-HA (negative control) or pcDNA3.1-MITF-RFP-HA. The overexpressing cells were then FACS-sorted directly into RLT lysis buffer (Qiagen) at a 3:1 volume ratio of lysis buffer to cells in PBS, 24 h post-transfection.
Project description:Expression data from ERBB2 over-expression and EGF stimulation in MCF10A cells The cells were transduced with retroviruses encoding vector control (pBabe) or pBabe-ErbB2. After infection cells were switched to assay medium supplemented with only 2% horse serum and no EGF. For EGF stimulation, cells transduced with empty vector were treated with EGF at 50 ng/ml for 2 hours before harvesting.
