A Long Noncoding RNA Acts as a Tumor Suppressor in Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma
ABSTRACT: Many long noncoding transcripts are involved in cancer progression. Here, we utilized high-throughput microarray to compare the transcriptome alterations between the KYSE30 cells overexpressing an empty vector and Epist, thus identified 95 and 99 down-regulated and up-regulated genes, respectively. Expression levels of several previously reported genes implicated in cancer development and progression were altered, such as DDIT3, GATA6, UPP1, FAT3. These genes are involved in tumorigenesis through diverse mechanisms. The present study reveals that Epist functions as a tumor suppressor in Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma. KYSE30 cells overexpressing an empty vector were compared to KYSE30 cells overexpressing Epist. Three biological replicates of each condition were analysed on Agilent microarray.
Project description:To compare the differentially expressed transcriptomes between MIHA cells transfected with empty vector control or different C-terminal truncated HBx mutants (14 or 35 amino acid carboxyl-terminal truncation - i.e. d14 and d35) mRNA profiles of MIHA cells stably overexpressing empty vector control or different C-terminal truncated HBx mutants (delta 14 and delta 35) were generated by PolyA mRNA sequencing using Illumina HiSeq 1500 platform
Project description:Transcriptional profiling in HACAT cells using a whole human genome array; HACAT cells treated with si RNA against Keap 1 or a scrambled si RNA sequence (Scram) vs HACAT cells mock transfected with lipofectamine (reference control) Experiment Overall Design: 2 biological replicates, 2 technical (dye swap) replicates per treatment.
Project description:IGFBP2 has been shown to act as an oncogene augmenting tumor progression in a number of malignancies. We sought to investigate role of IGFBP2 and its related pathways in PDAC. Gene expression profiling were used to reveal the key signaling pathways. Microarray experiments in IGFBP2-overexpressing AsPc-1 cells were carried out.Transcriptional profiling of human pancreatic cancer cells AsPc-1 comparing empty vector transfected control AsPc-1 cells with AsPc-1 cells transfected with pcDNA3.1-IGFBP2. We performed cDNA microarray analysis to compare IGFBP2 stably expressing cell line originating from AsPc-1 with empty vector control cells. AsPC-1 clones transfected with empty vector were placed in the reference channel in hybridization.
Project description:Analysis of MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells overexpressing lncRNA neuroblastoma associated transcript 1 (NBAT1). Results provide insight into the function of NBAT1 in breast cancer. NBAT1 overexpressed in breast cancer cells MDA-MB-231 compared to control (empty vector alone). Three replicates of each treatment were analyzed.
Project description:We used Affymetrix GeneChips to expression profile rat kidney NRK-52E cells treated with control scrambled siRNA or siRNA specifically targeting Adamts16. The goal of this project was to identify the downstream genes regulated by Adamts16 (the function of Adamts16 has yet to be fully delineated). Gene expression differences resulting from these siRNA-mediated gene knockdown experiments will be compared to the gene expression profiling experiments comparing kidneys from Dahl salt-senstive hypertensive inbred strain versus less hypertensive S.LEW(D1MCO4x1x3Bx1) congenic strain. The S.LEW(D1MCO4x1x3Bx1) congenic animal is an S rat containing the LEWIS allele for Adamts16 instead of the S allele. Gene expression differences in the kidneys of S.LEW(D1MCO4x1x3Bx1) versus S are hypothesized to result from sequence differences between the S and LEWIS alleles for Adamts16. It is further hypothesized that allelic differences in Adamts16 in inbred rats is responsible for blood pressure variance. The downstream genes regulated by Adamts16 may provide insight pertaining to the mechanism of blood pressure differences. Experiment Overall Design: RNA from 3 independent cultures of NRK-52E cells treated with scrambled control siRNA was extracted for target preparation and hybridization onto Affymetrix GeneChips. We also isolated RNA from NRK-52E cells treated with two different siRNAs targeting Adamts16 (n=2 independent cultures for each siRNA) for target preparation and hybridization onto Affymetrix GeneChips.
Project description:Ets homologous factor (EHF) is an Ets family transcription factor expressed in many epithelial cell types including those lining the respiratory system. Disruption of the airway epithelium is central to many lung diseases, and a network of transcription factors coordinates its normal function. EHF can act as a transcriptional activator or a repressor, though its targets in lung epithelial cells are largely uncharacterized. RNA-seq after EHF depletion or overexpression showed significant alterations in the expression of genes involved in response to wounding. EHF knockdown also targeted genes in pathways of epithelial development and differentiation and locomotory behavior. mRNA profiles from Calu-3 cells treated with negative control (NC) or EHF siRNA, in quintuplicate. mRNA profiles from 3 pcDNA (empty vector control) clones and 3 pcDNA-EHF overexpression A549 clones, 3-4 replicates each.
Project description:RBP2 is downstream of pRB pathway; We used gene expression profiling experiments to investigate if gene expression changes in cells with RBP2 knockdown significantly overlap with gene expression changes in cells overexpressing pRB, consistent with the data that knockdown of RBP2 phenocopies reintroduction of pRB in SAOS-2 (RB-/-) cells Experiment Overall Design: Knockdown of RBP2 by siRNA to RBP2 (RBP2siRNA) in SAOS-2 (RB-/-) cells in comparison to overexpression of pRB in the SOAS-2 (RB-/-) cells and scrambled version of the RBP2 siRNA (RBP2scsiRNA)
Project description:The effect of transient transfection of a construct designed to over-express the androgen receptor (AR) variant AR-V7 on gene expression in MDA-MB-453 cells was assessed using Affymetrix Gene 2.0 ST arrays. Transfection of an AR-expressing construct or an empty construct served as controls. AR-V7, AR or empty vector was transfected into MDA-MB-453 cells. Cells were treated with vehicle control or DHT.
Project description:We have compared the genome-wide effects on the transcriptome after treatment with ICG-001 (the specific CBP inhibitor) versus C646, a compound that competes with acetyl-coA for the Lys-coA binding pocket of both CBP and p300. We found that both drugs cause large-scale changes in the transcriptome of HCT116 colon cancer cells and PANC1 pancreatic cancer cells, and reverse some tumor-specific changes in gene expression. Interestingly, although the epigenetic inhibitors affect cell cycle pathways in both the colon and pancreatic cancer cell lines, the WNT signaling pathway was affected only in the colon cancer cells. Notably, WNT target genes were similarly down-regulated after treatment of HCT116 with C646 as with ICG-001. To identify genes affected by direct targeting of a component of the transcriptional complex implicated in WNT regulation, we used siRNAs to knockdown TCF7L2 in PANC1 cells. Cells were treated with control siRNAs or siRNAs specific for TCF7L2 and RNA was analyzed by RNA-seq.
