Project description:Effect of the presence of Lactococcus lactis on Staphylococcus aureus transcriptome in cheese matrix. S. aureus was co-cultured with L. lactis LD61 in cheese matrix during 7 days. RNA samples were extracted at different time points (6 h, 8 h, 10 h, 24 h and 7 days) in order to monitor the dynamic response of S. aureus MW2 in cheese matrix in presence of L. lactis
Project description:The objectif was to investigated the anti-atherogenic effects of nutritional supplementation of NAR in different mouse models of hypercholesterolemia and use transcriptomic approach to identify its molecular targets in the liver and aorta.
Project description:At eight weeks of age, male mice were divided into two groups (15 mice per group) fed iso-energetic diet: a control-diet or the same diet supplemented with 0.2% of curcumin (Sigma Aldrich) for 16 weeks (Table S1). The dose of curcumin used in this study is equivalent to 1g curcumin consumption in humans, a level of consumption achievable in South-Asian countries. No significant difference in weight gain was observed between the two groups at the end of the experimental period (data not shown). After 16 weeks, mice were anaesthetized (40 mg pentobarbital/kg of body weight) and blood was collected from the abdominal aorta into heparinised tubes and plasma was stored at -80 C. After washing with sterilized PBS, aorta and heart samples were immediately frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored at -80 C. Original processed data are available in the archive: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/arrayexpress/files/E-MEXP-3185/E-MEXP-3185.additional.zip
Project description:Hybridisation of reference strains to the VirEp Staphylococcus aureus microarray, and characterisation of different S. aureus isolates from different locations and associated with different diseases.
