RNA-Seq analysis of the WEHI-231-derived stable cell lines WEHI-control and WEHI-miR-148a
ABSTRACT: miRNAs regulate the expression of its targets genes by promoting mRNA degradation and translational repression. The goal of this study is to perform RNA-Seq in control or miR-148a-expressing WEHI-231 cell lines for the identification of miR-148a target genes. WEHI-control and WEHI-miR-148a cells were stimulated with anti-IgM (2 ug/ml) for 14 h. Total RNA was extracted, enriched for polyA-containing RNAs and submitted to RNA-Seq.
Project description:A quantitative proteomics combined with stable isotope labeling was applied to identify the global profile of miR-148a-regulated downstream proteins in AGS cancer cells. For proteomic analysis, cells were treated with miR-148a mimic (Pre-miR-148a) or miR-148a negative control (miR-CTL) and the downstream protein expression level (Pre-miR-148a/miR-CTL) were quantified using iTRAQ approach. Bioinformatics pipeline: The peak list in the resultant MS/MS spectra were generated by Mascot Distiller v188.8.131.52 and searched using Mascot v2.2 against the International Protein Index (IPI) human database (v. 3.64, 84032 sequences). The Mascot search parameters were +-0.1 Da for MS tolerance, +-0.1 Da for MS/MS mass tolerance, allowances for two missed cleavages, and variable modifications of deamidation (NQ), oxidation (M), iTRAQ (N terminal), iTRAQ (K), and MMTS (C). Protein quantitation were calculated using the Multi-Q software v184.108.40.206 with a dynamic range filter of ion count > 30.
Project description:In lymphocytes, NFATc1 is the most prominent NFAT transcription factor which play a crucial role in the fate and activity of peripheral T and B cells. NFATc1 is synthesized in two prominent isoforms, the inducible short isoform NFATc1/aA and the constitutively expressed long isoform NFATc1/C. Several lines of evidence suggested that both isoforms differ markedly in their function. It was speculated that NFATc1/aA supports the proliferation and survival of lymphocytes, whereas NFATc1/C should support apoptosis and anergy induction. To proof this hypothesis we established WEHI 231 B lymphoma cells that stably (over-) express either NFATc1/aA or NFATc1/C. In preliminary experiments we could should that WEHI cells overexpressing NFATc1/aA were protected against apoptosis induction, while cells overexpressing NFATc1/C should a higher apoptosis rate. Transcriptom analysis of WEHI-231 cells overexpressing either NFATc1/aA or NFATc1/C were performed, along with a control group of WEHI-231 cells overexpressing the E.coli enzyme BirA Ligase (which is also present in all target cell lines since for further molecular assays the NFATc1 proteins were expressed as chimeric protein containing C-terminal bio-tags. The experimental results obtained indicate that the both NFATc1 proteins, NFATc1/aA and NFATc1/C, differ tremendously in their transcriptional properties.
Project description:MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as novel cancer genes. In particular, the 17~92 cluster of miRNAs is highly expressed in haematopoietic cancers and promotes lymphomagenesis in vivo1,2. Clinical use of these findings hinges on isolating the oncogenic activity within the 17~92 cluster and defining its relevant target genes. Here we show that miR-19 is sufficient to promote leukaemogenesis in Notch1 induced T-cell lymphoblastic leukaemia (T-ALL) in vivo. Consistent with the pathogenic importance of this interaction, we report a novel translocation targeting the 17~92 miRNA cluster coinciding with a second rearrangement that activates Notch1 in T-ALL. To identify the miR-19 targets responsible for its oncogenic action, we conducted a large-scale short-hairpin RNA (shRNA) screen for genes whose knockdown could phenocopy miR-19. Strikingly, the results of this screen were enriched for miR-19 target genes, and included Bim (Bcl2L11)1,3, AMP-activated kinase (Prkaa1), and the tumour suppressor phosphatases Pten and PP2A (Ppp2r5e). Hence, an unbiased, functional genomics approach reveals a coordinate clamp down on several regulators of PI3K-related survival signals by the leukaemogenic miR-19.

Project description:To identify differentially expressed genes by anti cancer treatments (microRNAs or siRNAs) in human cancer, several cell lines ( renal cell carcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, esophageal, pancreatic and prostate cancer) were subjected to Agilent whole genome microarrays. Overall design: Human cell lines (A-498, 786-O, A549, TE-8, PANC-1, SW1990, PC3 and PC3M) were treated with miRNAs (miR-10a-5p, miR-150-5p, miR-150-3p, miR-148a-5p, miR-148a-3p, miR-499a-5p, miR-455-3p and miR-455-5p), siRNAs (si-ANLN).

Overall design: Human cell lines (SK-MES, MDA-MB-231, MKN and 786-O) were treated with miRNAs (miR-451a, 99a-5p, 99a-3p, 148a-5p and 148a-3p), siRNAs (si-SDC3 and si-SERPINH1).
Project description:To better understand the mechanisms of blockage of myeloid differentiation and apoptosis and induction of proliferation by miR-125b, we preceded to identify miR-125b target genes involved in these pathways. We analyzed the total cellular gene expression pattern by RNA-sequencing of the parental 32Dclone3 myeloid cell line and that ectopically expressing miR-125b. We generated four cDNA libraries corresponding to duplicates of miR-125b and control cells. Compare the gene expression level in vector transduced 32Dclone3 cells with that in miR-125b transduced 32Dclone3 cells.
