Project description:DCP (2-4-dichlorophenol; 0,3mM) and POELE (polyoxyethylen-9-laurylether; 0,1mM)treatment on Saccharomyces cerevisiae W303-1A wild-type cells. Further investigation of the involvement of the transcripton factors Pdr1 and Pdr3 in DCP treated cells. Cells were growing in early exponential phase in rich medium.
Project description:Investigating the oxidative stress response: Candida glabrata strains were stressed with hydrogen peroxide and menadione (causing oxygen radicals) to induce the oxidative stress regulon, which is thought to be upregulated during the oxidative burst inside of phagocytic cells.
Project description:Mapping proteomic composition at distinct genomic loci and subnuclear landmarks in living cells has been a long-standing challenge. Here we report that dCas9-APEX2 Biotinylation at genomic Elements by Restricted Spatial Tagging (C-BERST) allows the unbiased mapping of proteomes near defined genomic loci, as demonstrated for telomeres and centromeres. C-BERST enables the high-throughput identification of proteins associated with specific sequences, facilitating annotation of these factors and their roles in nuclear and chromosome biology.
Project description:The strongest risk factor for developing Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is age. Here, we study the relationship between ageing and AD using a systems biology approach that employs a Drosophila (fruitfly) model of AD in which the flies overexpress the human Aβ42 peptide. We identified 712 genes that are differentially expressed between control and Aβ-expressing flies. We further divided these genes according to how they change over the animal's lifetime and discovered that the AD-related gene expression signature is age- independent. We have identified a number of differentially expressed pathways that are likely to play an important role in the disease, including oxidative stress and innate immunity. In particular, we uncovered two new modifiers of the Aβ phenotype, namely Sod3 and PGRP-SC1b. Transcript level measured using microarrays in biological quadruplicate (except day 20 which is in biological triplicate), each array is Aβ vs control at the same timepoint (defined by % survival), one replicate per array with dye-swaps.
Project description:Exponentially growing Sulfolobus acidocaldarius were treated with NaAc to generate replication runout and arrest in G2 phase. The cells were then resuspended in fresh acetate-free media which generates a synchronous population. Samples for investigation of gene expression change were taken during the synchronised populations progress through the cell cycle.
Project description:The outcome of Notch proliferation on proliferation depends on the context. In Drosophila wing imaginal discs Notch activation causes hyperplasia despite having localized inhibitory effects on proliferation. To understand te underlying mechanisms we have used genomic strategies to identify the Notch-Su(H) target genes during wing discs hyperplasis. these data are the results from expression profiling the RNAs from hyperplastic wing discs overexpressing Nicd. Direct comparison of third instar lavae wing imaginal disc Nicd (abxUbxFLPase; Act>y>Gal4, UAS GFP; FRT82B tubGal80 with UAS-Nicd; FRT82B) vs control (abxUbxFLPase; Act>y>Gal4, UAS GFP; FRT82B tubGal80 with FRT82B ). 4 Biological replicates, the 2nd replicate was performed as a dye-swap.
Project description:The outcome of Notch activation of proliferation depends on cellular context. In Drosophila wing discs Notch pathway overactivation results in hyperplasia. To understand the mechanisms we have used genomic strategies to indetify the Notch-S(H) target genes directly regulated in wing disc hyperplasia. These data are the results from expression profiling the RNAs from hyperplastic wing discs overexpressing Su(H). Direct comparison of Giant third instar lavae wing imaginal disc (UAS-GFP:Su(H) expressed by the patched[559.1]-Gal4 driver) vs control (UAS-NLS-GFP expressed by the patched[559.1]-Gal4 driver). 3 Biological replicates, the 3rd replicate was performed as a dye-swap.
Project description:We have established Drosophila melanogaster as a model system for ocular hypertension by expressing wild-type human myocilin (MYOC) in the Drosophila eye. Here, we have created transgenic flies that express four clinically relevant mutant forms of MYOC (R342K, Q368X, D380N and K423E) in their eyes using the gmr-Gal4/UAS binary system. We compare and identify human glaucoma candidate genes based on the transcription profiles of flies that express wt-MYOC or mutant-MYOCs.
Project description:modENCODE_submission_2603 This submission comes from a modENCODE project of Kevin White. For full list of modENCODE projects, see http://www.genome.gov/26524648 Project Goal: The White Lab is aiming to map the association of all the Transcription Factors (TF) and DNA associated proteins on the genome of Drosophila melanogaster. The main technique that will be used for this purpose is chromatin immunoprecipitation-on-chip (ChIP-on-chip) utilizing whole-genome tiling arrays. The data generated by ChIP-chip experiments consist basically of a plot of signal intensity across the genome. The highest signals correspond to positions in the genome occupied by the tested TF. For data usage terms and conditions, please refer to http://www.genome.gov/27528022 and http://www.genome.gov/Pages/Research/ENCODE/ENCODEDataReleasePolicyFinal2008.pdf EXPERIMENT TYPE: CHIP-chip.
