Transcription profiling of Arabidopsis argonaute mutants to identify the regulation pathways implied in adventitious root formation control
ABSTRACT: Identification of the régulation pathways implied in adventitious root formation control in Arabidopsis etiolated seedlings. 2 mutants : a null allele and a weak allele of the ARGONAUTE gene. 4 repetitions in 2 pools for each sample.
Project description:Samples were taken at 7, 14 and 24 days post infection (dpi). Two treatments were considered: infection with R. fascians D188-5 that is non virulent (control) and infections with the virulent D188 strain.
Project description:To establish the effect of CPT in the regulation of global transcription in S. cerevisiae, we have used a yeast TOP1 null strain, JEL1Δtop1, bearing a low-copy number plasmid that expresses, under the control of the yeast TOP1 promoter, either a wild-type (wt) yeast Top1p (pCC10) or an inactive Y727F mutant enzyme (pAR7).We determined global transcript levels upon CPT treatments of JEL1Δtop1 cells expressing either a yeast wt or Y727F mutant Top1p.
Project description:Identification of new genes regulated by RDR6 and SGS3 (two genes involved in PTGS) by analysis of the transcriptome of rdr6-1 and sgs3-1 mutants compared to wild-type plants in different tissues (flower and leaves). The comparison between transcriptome of rdr6-1 and sgs3-1 mutant alleles impaired in PTGS and development (juvenile-to-adult transition) and transcriptome of rdr6-5 and sgs3-3 alleles impaired only in PTGS would allowed identification of genes involved in the developmental default (zip phenotype) of the null alleles (rdr6-1 and sgs3-1 mutants).
Project description:Cell suspension culture of Arabidopsis thaliana (ecotype Columbia) was treated by 250 mM salicylic acid and by two different concentrations of wortmannin (1 mM and 30 mM) for 4 hours.
Project description:In this experiment, Arabidopsis plants infected by a virus, Tobacco etch virus (TEV), a potyvirus, were compared with healthy plants to identify genes for which the expression is modified by the viral infection. Analysis of both inoculated leaves and upper young leaves were performed 7 days after the inoculation with the virus (or with only buffer for the healthy plants).
Project description:Title : Characterization of genes differentially expressed in roots of transgenic arabidopsis lines expressing the p25 protein of beet necrotic yellow vein virus.<br> <br> Biological question : <br> Rhizomania ("crazy root") is a severe disease of sugar beet caused by beet necrotic yellow vein virus (BNYVV), which is transmitted by the soil-inhabiting fungus Polymyxa betae. Symptoms of virus infection are characterized by a constricted tap root and a massive proliferation of fine rootlets that often undergo necrosis. BNYVV RNA-3 encodes a 25 kDa (p25) which is an important determinant of leaf symptom phenotype. It also governs BNYVV invasion of the plant root system and induction of rootlet proliferation in sugar beet.<br> In order to obtain a better understanding of molecular aspects of disease development in roots and to characterize specific host genes involved in response to viral infection, transgenic Arabidopsis overexpressors of p25 viral protein was obtained and better characterized. It was shown that transgenic plants that efficiently expressed p25 protein produced more lateral roots. <br> Comparative analysis (microarray) was performed between wild type Arabidopsis roots and transgenic Arabidopsis roots expressing p25 protein, in order to identify Arabidopsis genes differentially expressed in response to p25 viral protein.<br> <br> Experiment description: <br> Seeds were surface sterilized, chilled at 4C for 4 days, and then germinated and grown on square Petri plates containing sterilized Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium with 1% sucrose. Such stock plates were arranged vertically in plastic racks and placed into growth chamber. After 5 days, plants were transferred carefully onto fresh MS medium big round plates. On each plate, 60 Wild Type (WT) plantlets were transferred on the half right of the plate, and 60 transgenic plantlets (B, E or T lines) were transferred on the half left of the plate. Plates were arranged horizontally and placed into growth chamber. <br> <br>Experiment 1 : 5 plates containing WT0A control plants and B0A transgenic plants. <br> <br>Experiment 2 : 5 plates containing WT1 control plants and B transgenic plants. <br>5 plates containing WT2 control plants and E transgenic plants. <br>5 plates containing WT3 control plants and T transgenic plants. <br> <br>Plants were harvested after 7 days (experiment 1) or 12 days (experiment 2), and WT roots or transgenic roots were pooled and conserved at -80C.
Project description:Wild type Neisseria gonorrhoea strain FA1090 and N. meningitidis strain MC58 were grown on normal GC plate at either 35 degree celsius (for control samples) or 40 degree celsius (for test samples)
Project description:Does the ko of NIN7 leads to a differential expression in comparison to the wildtype. Can we repeat the results from the first experiment; and is there a difference between the two alleles? <br> Plants were harvested during the first 3 hours of light after 42 days growth on 0.2mM or 6mM nitrate in hydroponic condition (short day, 170 uE).
Project description:Does the NRT2.7 participate to the HATS?<br> We would like to understand the function of the AtNRT2.7 in nitrate transport under limiting and non limiting nitrate conditions.<br> Plants were harvested after 32 days for plants under high nitrogen nutrition and 42 days for low nitrogen nutrition. Plants were grown hydroponic condition (short day, 170 uE).
