Identification of genes are regulated by AURKA at transcription level
ABSTRACT: Purpose: AURKA plays an important role in breast cancer development. Exploring the gene expression profiles regulated by AURKA will facilitate to understand the mechanism which is responsible for AURKA induced breast cancer development. Results: We found that 350 genes were significantly up-regulated during AURKA overexpression in MCF-10A cells, 346 genes were significantly down-regulated during AURKA overexpression in MCF-10A cells. Conclusions: Our study indicated that 696 differentially expressed genes might contribute to AURKA induced breast cancer development. MCF-10A cells overexpressed AURKA or the empty vector were subjected to RNA extraction. The resulted RNA samples were performed RNA-sequencing analyses of gene expression profiles.
Project description:The goals of this study are to compare differential gene expressions for Penicillium oxalicum wild type strain (WT), and laeA knockout strain (ΔlaeA) in different development phase. The deletion of laeA downregulated genes involved in oxidation- reduction process, alkaloid metabolic process, and transmembrane transport. We find the expression levels of seven secondary metabolism gene clusters (totally 28 clusters) were silenced inΔlaeA. This study provides the information that laeA function are required in conidiation and hydrolase activity of P. oxalicum. Examination of differential gene expressions by digital gene expression tag profiling in Penicillium oxalicum wild type strain and laeA knockout mutant strains in 24h and 60h in modified Czapek culture medium with 2% glucose as carbon resource. qRT–PCR validation was performed using SYBR Green assays.
Project description:4,392 differentially expressed genes were generated by DGE analysis, and 3,074 had good comparability with known gene sequences in existing species. 1,152 differentially expressed sequences were mapped to the reference canonical pathways in the KEGG database, and were assigned to 110 KEGG pathways, 11 pathways less then with the transcriptome database. Differentially expressed genes were classed according to their function, which includes phytohormones, growth and developmental processes, defense, peroxidase and P450-related genes. Pathway analysis also revealed that the principal secondary metabolites in the C. odorata cuttings were phytohormones and flavonoids. Examination of 2 different stage of adventitious root formation

Project description:Here we performed a transcriptomic study on the effect of sodium nitroprusside (SNP) on cucumber leaves under alkali stress using Solexa/Illumina's high-throughput digital gene expression (DGE) system. Two DGE libraries (from one NaHCO3-treated sample and one NaHCO3 + SNP-treated sample) were constructed, and the gene expression variations between the two samples were compared. Hundreds of differentially expressed genes were obtained by the comparison, and GO analysis of these genes suggested that many biological processes, molecular function, cellular components were related to SNP’s mitigated effect on alkaline stress. The authenticity of the DGE data was further confirmed by analyzing real-time RT-PCR using several random-selected genes. The experiment had 2 treatments: 30 mM NaHCO3 (alkali stress treatment, indicated as Na) and 30 mM NaHCO3+100 μM sodium nitroprusside (indicated as SNP). Samples from Na- and SNP-treated leaves, used for RNA isolation, were harvested, and the two corresponding tag libraries of samples were constructed in parallel. Illumina sequencing of transcripts from Na- and SNP-treated samples to get gene information for cucumber leaves in different treatments.
Project description:Versatile roles of REVOLUTA (REV), a Class III homeodomain-leucine zipper (HD-ZIP III) transcription factor, have been mainly depicted in Arabidopsis and Populus. In this study, we investigated the functions of its tomato homolog, namely SlREV. Over-expression of a microRNA166-resistant version of SlREV (35S::REVRis) not only resulted in vegetative abnormities such as curly leaves and fasciated stems, but also caused dramatic reproductive alterations including continuous production of flowers at pedicel abscission zone (AZ) and ectopic fruit formation on receptacles. Microscopic analysis showed that meristem-like structures continuously emerged out from the exodermises of pedicel AZs and ectopic carpels formed between the first and the second whorl of floral buds in 35S::REVRis plants. Therefore, we performed Illumina’s digital gene expression (DGE) system, a tag-based transcriptome sequencing methodTranscriptional data to dicover differential expressed genes in early buds (1-2 mm floral buds at stage 6-8) of overexpression line SlREVRis-1. The result suggests that SlREV may regulate genes related to meristem maintenance and cell differentiation in the development of flower pedicel abscission zone, and modulate genes in homodomain and MADS-box families and hormone pathways during fruit formation. These results reveal important roles of SlREV in tomato. 1-2 mm floral buds at stage 6-8 were sampled from three individual plants of 35S::REVRis-1 and corresponding WT control. Three aliquots of RNA from transgenic or WT plants were pooled. Then, the digital expression profile were generated by Illumina Cluster Station and Illumina HiSeq™ 2000 System (BGI Inc.).
Project description:Cassava mosaic disease caused by cassava begomoviruses is the most serious disease of cassava in Africa. However, the molecular mechanisms leading to symptom development of infected cassava plants are poorly understood. Here a high throughput digital gene expression profiling (DGE) based on Illumina Solexa sequencing technology was used to investigate the global transcriptional response of cassava to the African cassava mosaic virus infection. Results showed that 3,210 genes were differentially expressed in virus-infected cassava leaves. Gene Ontology (GO) term and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) pathway analysis indicated that photosynthesis related genes were most affected, which was consistent with the chlorotic symptom on the infected leaves. The upregulation of chlorophyll degradation genes, e.g. the genes encoding chlorophyllase and pheophorbide a oxygenase, as well as the downregulation of the major apoproteins genes in light harvesting complex II (LHCII) identified by the DGE analysis were confirmed by qRT-PCR. Together with the reduction of chlorophyll b content and fewer grana stacks in the infected leaf cells, this study reveals that the degradation of chlorophyll plays an important role during ACMV symptom development for the first time. Meanwhile, we believe that the non-lethal effect on photosystem is a trick for virus to avoid fierce host immune response and a result of the long-term co-evolution. This study will provide a road map for future investigations into virus symptom development. ACMV-infected cassava leaves mixture from three independent replicates were collected for RNA extractions at 20 dpi. Control samples were harvested from empty agrobacteria treated leaves incubated under the same conditions.
Project description:We investigated the transcriptional response of invasive Mediterranean (MED) species of the whitefly B. tabaci complex (commonly referred to as Q biotype) to entomopathogenic fungi Beauveria bassiana using Illumina sequencing technology. Nearly 1,000 of control whiteflies, 48h fungal-induced whiteflies and 72h fungal-induced whiteflies were collected, respectively.
Project description:A genome-wide transcriptome analysis showed that altering ZmPIN1a expression led to wide-ranging gene expression changes. When comparing overexpression lines A17 with the WT, 2975 genes were differentially expressed with 793 up-regulated and 2182 down-regulated in the leaves, and 2129 genes were differentially expressed with 938 up-regulated and 1191 down-regulated in the roots. GO analysis indicated that these differentially expressed genes participate in multiple biological processes from hormone signaling to metabolism. The local biosynthesis, PAT and signaling of auxin were altered; some was directly employed in plant developments such as AUX/IAA, ARFs and genes related to PAT. The genes involved in ethylene, GA, BR CK and ABA metabolism and signaling were altered as well. These phytohormones were also confirmed as key regulators in plant development and abiotic stress responses. Some of the differentially expressed genes between A17 and WT were identified as Arabidopsis root morphology and development mutant genes. These mutants were abnormal in their plant hormone synthesis and signaling, calcium-mediated signaling, MAP kinase signaling, transcription factors, membrane transporters etc. This finding suggested that ZmPIN1a overexpression led to a change of the auxin signaling transduction and even the metabolism of auxin and the metabolism and signaling of other hormones. These events led to changes in the expression of numerous genes and resulted in the modification of plant morphology, especially the root architecture. Maize (Zea mays L.) inbred line DH4866, its ZmPIN1a sense transgenic lines A17 and antisense transgenic lines a55 were used in this study. The transcriptome by altering ZmPIN1a expression was done by comparing the transcriptome of WT and transgenic lines both in root and leaf of V3 stage plants.
Project description:The whitefly Bemisa tabaci is a species complex of more than 31 cryptic species which include some of the most destructive invasive pests of many ornamental and glasshouse crops worldwide. Among them, Middle East-Asia Minor 1 (herein MEAM1) and Mediterranean (herein MED) have invaded many countries around the world and displaced the native whitefly species. However, the molecular differences between invasive and indigenous whiteflies remain largely unknown. The global transcriptional difference between the two invasive whitefly Bemisia tabaci species (MEAM1, MED) and one indigenous whitefly species (Asia II 3) were analyzed using the Illumina sequencing technology.
Project description:To study the function of chromatin regulators in hybrid gene expression, the histone deacetylase gene OsHDT1 was over-expressed or inactivated by RNAi in an elite rice parent. Digital analysis of gene expression using high throughput sequencing technology revealed several differential gene expression patterns in the hybrid, including additivity, nonadditivity and overdominance, etc. Alteration of OsHDT1 levels affected many genes specifically in the hybrid. In addition, we show that increased OsHDT1 could suppress overdominance gene expression, providing evidence of overdominance gene action in heterosis. These results not only support the overdominance hypothesis to explain heterosis, but also provide evidence that variation in the levels of single trans-acting regulatory proteins such as chromatin factors is important to establish differential gene expression pattern in the hybrid. High throughput sequencing technology was used to analyse gene differencial expression of 15 days old rice seedling of 5 samples, MH63(MH), ZS97(ZS), SY63(SY,hybrids of MH and ZS), overexpression of OsHDT1 in SY(FU), RNAi of OsHDT1 in SY(FR).
