Expression data from lung tissues of minipig with left lung ischemia-reperfusion
ABSTRACT: Lung ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury remains one of the common complications after various cardiopulmonary surgeries. I-R injury represents one potentially maladaptive response of the innate immune system which is featured by an exacerbated sterile inflammatory response triggered by tissue damage. Thus, understanding the key components and processes involved in sterile inflammation during lung I-R injury is critical to alter care and extend survival for patients with acute lung injury. We constructed a minipig surgical model of transient unilateral left pulmonary artery occlusion without bronchial involvement to create ventilated lung I-R injury. Lung tissues from minipig with sham operation (one sample), left side lung tissues (the operated side)(one sample) and right side lung tissues (the non-operated side)(one sample) from minipig with lung ischemia-reperfusion were submitted for gene expression array analysis.
Project description:The retina is often subjected to tractional forces in a variety of conditions, for instance, pathological myopia, proliferative vitreoretinopathy. As the predominant glial element in the sensory retina, Muller cells are responsible for the homeostatic and metabolic support of retinal neurons and active players in virtually all forms of retinal injury and disease. Besides, Muller cells span the entire retinal thickness, extending from the inner to the outer limiting membranes, with cell bodies located in the inner nuclear layer and lateral processes expanding into the plexiform layers of the tissue. Because of this unique morphology, Muller cells can sense even minute changes in the retinal structure because of the mechanical stretching of their long processes or side branches. Thus, it’s reasonable to infer that Muller cells also participate in ocular diseases when the retina is overstretched. In this study, we aim to investigate the whole genome regulation of Muller cells under mechanical stretching, which may help in excluding possible molecular mechanisms that would account for many retinal diseases in which the retina is often subjected to mechanical forces. We used microarrays to identify patterns of gene expression changes induced by cyclic mechanical stretching in Muller cells. Rat Muller cells were seeded onto flexible bottom culture plates and subjected to a cyclic stretching regimen of 15% equibiaxial stretching for 1 and 24 h.Muller cells cultured under the same conditions but with no applied mechanical strain were considered as the unstretched control. At each time points (1 and 24 h), three totally independent experiments (3 stretched samples and 3 control samples) were conducted. Muller cells were selected for RNA extraction and hybridization on Affymetrix microarrays. Stretch (S); Control (C)
Project description:The high concentration of Well5 cells was resuspended into 20μl PBS, the needle along the tibia direction, before reaching in a breakthrough sense, direct injection cells. At 7 days after injection, proximal tibia was able to reach mass production. At 20 days after injection, the proximal tibia mass increased.If prolonging exposure by BLI,this stage displayedthat tumor cell signalsbegan to lung metastasis. Osteosarcoma orthotopic lung metastasis model was successfully constructed. Total RNA was extracted from sorted osteosarcoma cells of the primary site and lung metastases using Trizol (Invitrogen). We used microarrays to detail the global programme of gene expression underlying cellularisation and identified distinct classes of up-regulated genes during osteosarcoma lung metastasis. In support of the notion that fibrosis marks the lung metastasis, the expression of numerous fibrosis-related genes such as FN1, COLs, and MMPs were upregulated from the primary site to lung metastasis in Well5-luc orthotopic inoculation model. Total RNA was extracted from sorted osteosarcoma cells using Trizol (Invitrogen). Gene expression profiling was conducted by Shanghai Biotechnology Corporation using Affymetrix U133 plus 2.0 arrays (Affymetrix, Santa Clara, CA). All data were analyzed according to the manufacturer’s protocol. Raw data generated from Affymetrix CEL files were normalized by RMA background correction; values were log2 transformed. For the enrichment of P values of each GO term, we used Fisher’s exact test to calculate P values and R package stats to calculate FDR (q value) by BH method (www.r-project.org).
Project description:To obtain and analyze early retinal changes at molecular level at 24h after ipsilateral intraorbital nerve radiation injury by gamma knife surgery Unilateral intraorbital optic nerves of three Rhesus Macaques were treated by gamma knife surgery (GKS) with irradiated doses of 15Gy, while the contralateral optic nerves and retinas served as the control. Gene expression profiles of control and affected retinas were analyzed with Affymetrix Rhesus Macaque Genome arrays at 24h after treatment
Project description:RNA2.7 is a long non-coding RNA encoded by HCMV, which has be reported related with apoptosis. We have found RNA2.7 can also affect virus replication. We used the microarrays to look for HCMV RNA2.7 related host transcripts. We infected HELF cells by HCMV BAC HAN which was contructed from a HCMV clinical isolate, and BAC HAN^RNA2.7 which was a mutant of BAC HAN by deletion of RNA2.7. By running microarray and bioanalysis, we aimed to find RNA2.7 involvement in host and virus replication and transcription.
Project description:To gain insights into the mechanisms of dihydroberberine, sunitinib and dihydroberberine plus sunitinib on inhibition to A549 cells, we have employed whole genome microarray expression profiling as a discovery platform to identify different genes between dihydroberberine, sunitinib and dihydroberberine plus sunitinib-treated sample and control. A549 cells were cultivated in the absence or presence of 25μmol/L dihydroberberine, 2μmol/L sunitinib, 25μmol/L dihydroberberine plus 2μmol/L sunitinib for 48 h, followed by the Agilent Whole Human Genome Oligo Microarray
Project description:Hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) experience phenotypic transformation, from the quiescent phenotype to the activated one, after different etiologies of liver injury. Liver fibrosis is then occurred upon the activation of HSCs. miR-16 deficiency is identified to be an important characteristic of HSCs activation. We used Affymetrix rat 230 2.0 arrays (Affymetrix, Santa Clara, U.S.A.) to uncover the global alternations of transcriptome under miR-16 restoration. We isolated quiescent hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) from adult male SD rats (normal control group) by in situ perfusion and density-gradient centrifugation. Activated HSCs were separated from rats of fibrosis model group, which were treated by 40% carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) for 8 weeks, by means of liver section, digestion and sequential centrifugation. Quiescent and activated HSCs were then divided into 4 groups at random, namely quiescent HSCs, activated HSCs, pLV-miR-16-treated HSCs and pLV-GFP-treated HSCs. The pLV-miR-16-treated group, pLV-GFP-treated group were infected with pLV-miR-16 and pLV-GFP, respectively.
Project description:To determine the influence of primary tumors on pre-metastatic lungs, we have employed whole genome microarray expression profiling as a discovery platform to identify gene signatures of alveolar type II epithelial cells (AT-II) in TLR3 deficient mice (Tlr3-/-) and wide-type (WT) littermates with tumor bearing. We subcutaneously inoculated Tlr3-/- and WT mice with Lewis lung carcinoma (LLC). Two weeks later, lung tissues from Tlr3-/- and WT mice were dissociated and AT-II cells were sorted. AT-II cells from mice without tumor bearing were set as controls. Primary tumor induced gene expression in AT-II cells from Tlr3-/- and WT mice was measured at 2 weeks after tumor inoculation subcutaneously. AT-II cells from mice without tumor bearing were set as controls.
Project description:When PDMSCs were induced to heptocytes in vitro, cells mophology, stem cell markers, mitochondrial metabolism will change according to the differentiated status.But dedifferentiation reverses differentiated cells to a more primitive phenotype and PDMSCs will retain the multilineage potency. Furthermore, it will leads to the alteration of gene expression pattern. We used microarrays to detail the global programme of gene expression underlying dedifferentiation and hepatogenic differentiation prcocesses, we intend to identify distinct classes of differentiated genes during these processes. Human PDMSCs at passage 5 were induced to hepatocytes for 11 days, then the inductive medium was replaced by general culture medium for 1 day. Then human PDMSCs, hepatogenic PDMSCs at 11 days, dedifferentiated PDMSCs were selected for RNA extraction and hybridization on Affymetrix microarrays. To that end, we hand-selected cells at three time-points: before hepatogenic induction (P), hepatogenic PDMSCs at 11 days (H) and dedifferentiated PDMSCs for 1 day (DH) .

There are three groups of samples, each group has two repeated samples, hiPSCs respectively compared with hESCs and human Urine-Derived Cells.
Project description:Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been implicated in the formation of many different types of tumors. However, expression profiles and potential functions of lncRNAs in non-functioning pituitary adenomas (NFPAs) have not been systematically evaluated. We evaluated the expression profiles and potential functions of lncRNAs in non-functioning pituitary adenomas (NFPAs). 10 formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue specimens (5 non-functioning pituitary adenomas (NFPAs) and 5 normal pituitaries(NPs)) were selected for RNA extraction and hybridization on Affymetrix microarrays. The NFPAs team was designed as the Tumor group (T), while the NPs team was designed as Normal group (N).
