Transcription profiling by array of Saccharomyces cerevisiae after treatment with tripelennamine
ABSTRACT: This study newly identified Tripelennamine (TA) as an inhibitor of yeast meiosis and sporulation. To examine if and how exposure of sporulating yeast cells to TA changes the meiotic transcriptional program cells were sporulated for 0, 4, and 8 hours in the presence or absence of 100 uM TA.
Meiosis is a highly regulated developmental process that occurs in all eukaryotes that engage in sexual reproduction. Previous epidemiological work shows that male and female infertility is rising and environmental factors, including pollutants such as organic solvents, are thought to play a role in this phenomenon. To better understand how organic compounds interfere with meiotic development, the model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae was exposed to 446 bioactive molecules while undergoing mei ...[more]

Project description:<br><br>Annual heart allograft failure in humans rates about 3-5%. The main reason after the first postoperative year is chronic rejection. Myointimal hyperplasia, the hellmark of chronic rejection, results in a specific type of ischemic heart disease. The lack of angina pectoris symptoms allow ventricular arrythmias, sudden cardiac death or heart failure to occur without warning. In addition, diagnostic tools such as endomyocardial biopsy, coronary angiography or intracoronary ultrasound fail to predict the individual risk for myocardial dysfunction.<br><br>The mechanisms responsible for chronic rejection are predominantly alloimmune mediated with activated T cells, macrophages, B cell mediated antibody formation and secreted cytokines responding to HLA and other endothelial cell antigens. In addition, non immunologic risk factors such as recipient age, metabolic factors, hypertension and ischemia contribute to development of this disease. Previous studies have demonstrated that ischemia has a profound influence on short term allograft survival but the underlaying mechanisms remain largely unknown. Apoptosis seems to play a crucial role in ischemia/reperfusion injury and several mechanisms for programmed cell death have been described. However, consequences on long term cell function of viability have not been investigated. <br><br>The aim of this study was to investigate the implication and the mechanism of prolonged cold organ storage as a non immunologic risk factor in the pathogenesis of chronic rejection in a cardiac allograft model. <br><br>We aimed for answering the following specific questions:<br><br>How does cold ischemia affect the alloimmue response short and long term? <br><br>How does prolonged cold ischemia affect gene expression at later time points after transplantation? <br><br>Does it influence gene expression during chronic rejection?<br><br><br><br>
Project description:This study newly identified Tripelennamine (TA) as an inhibitor of yeast meiosis and sporulation. To examine if and how exposure of sporulating yeast cells to TA influences the viability of the cells a homozygous deletion pool experiment was conducted.
Project description:Four independent pools of zebrafish embryo were injected with prp2 morphants and after 24 hours post fertilization, gene expression profiles were compared to their respective controls, using microarray. A dye swap design experiment using four microarray slides were conducted.
Project description:To study the meiotic dynamic of the methylation of H3K4, in relation with the transcriptomic regulation, we determine the meiotic time-course of H3 occupancy by ChIP-chip.

Project description:In relation with the study of the meiotic dynamic of H3K4 methylation, we determined the meiotic Double Strand Breaks (DSB) profiles of wild-type and set1∆ cells. We profiled the DSB sites by immunoprecipitating Rfa1 in dmc1∆ cells, at 5h for the wild-type experiment and at 7h for the set1∆ cells.
