Characterization of AGO2 bound short RNAs from nuclear extracts of Jurkat cell line
ABSTRACT: Characterization of AGO2 bound short RNAs from nuclear extracts of Jurkat cell line. Nuclei were isolated from cells; a fraction of Nuclear lysates was harvested and sequenced as the input samples. The rest of nuclear lysates were Immunoprecipitated using AGO2 monoclonal antibodies or Isotype matched IgG. Following immunoprecipitation, RNA was extracted from AGO2 or control IgG IP for short RNA sequencing. Two independent biological replicates were carried out.
Argonaute (AGO) proteins have a well-established role in post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression as key component of the RNA silencing pathways. Recent evidence involves AGO proteins in mammalian nuclear processes such as transcription and splicing, though the mechanistic aspects of AGO nuclear functions remain largely elusive. Here, by SILAC-based interaction proteomics, we identify the chromatin-remodelling complex SWI/SNF as a novel AGO2 interactor in human cells. Moreover, we show ...[more]
Project description:Characterization of AGO2 bound short RNAs from nuclear extracts of HeLaS3 cell line. Nuclei were isolated from HeLaS3 cells; a fraction of Nuclear lysates was harvsted and sequenced as the 'input' samples. The rest of nuclear lysates were Immunoprecipitated using AGO2 monoclonal antibodies or Isotype matched IgG. Following immunoprecipitation, RNA was extracted from AGO2 or control IgG IP for short RNA sequencing. Two independent biological replicates were carried out.
Project description:Characterization of AGO1 bound short RNAs from nuclear extracts of HeLaS3 cell line. Nuclei were isolated from HeLaS3 cells; a fraction of Nuclear lysates was harvsted and sequenced as the input samples. The rest of nuclear lysates were immunoprecipitated using AGO1 monoclonal antibodies or Isotype matched IgG. Following immunoprecipitation, RNA was extracted from AGO1 or control IgG IP for short RNA sequencing. Two independent biological replicates were carried out.
Project description:DICER_Ex5 cells were created by disrupting exon 5 of the human Dicer gene using an AAV targeting construct, thereby interrupting a well conserved segment of the N-terminal helicase domain while sparing the RNase III domains. In DICER_Ex5 cells, Dicer is expressed at a level lower than the wild type. This experiment started with RIP-anti-Ago2 pull-down, followed by high throughput sequencing analysis in wild type and Dicer-hypomorphic HCT116 cell lines.
Project description:MiR-21 is an important suppressor of T-cell apoptosis that is also widely overexpressed in many types of cancers. The exact mechanisms related to the anti-apoptotic effect of miR-21 is not well understood. In this study, we applied AGO2 RNA Immunoprecipitation followed by gene expression profiling (RIP-Chip) in Jurkat cells to identify apoptosis-associated miR-21 target genes. We showed that expression of miR-21 rapidly increases upon αCD3/αCD28 activation of Jurkat cells. Inhibition of miR-21 resulted in reduced cell growth and induced apoptosis. Upon AGO2-RIP-Chip, we observed an overall increased enrichment of miR-21 target genes in the IP fraction of miR-21-overexpressing Jurkat cells as compared to the IP fraction of empty vector control cells. We noted a systematic decrease in transcript levels of predicted miR-21 target genes compared to EV control. We identified 72 genes that were 2-fold enriched in the AGO2-IP fraction of miR-21-overexpressing cells that contained a predicted miR-21 binding site. Of these, 71 were enriched 2-fold more in the miR-21-overexpressing cells as compared to EV Jurkat cells. The target gene for which the enrichment was most prominently increased upon miR-21 overexpression was the pro-apoptotic protein LATS1. Luciferase reporter assays confirmed direct targeting of the LATS1 3'UTR by miR-21. In line with the luciferase results, Western blot analysis revealed a decrease in LATS1 upon miR-21 inhibition. LATS1 qRT-PCR analysis in primary T-cells showed that LATS1 levels decrease upon T-cell stimulation while the miR-21 levels increase. Collectively, these data identify the miR-21 target LATS1 as a likely candidate whose inhibition contributes to the anti-apoptotic function of miR-21 in T-cells and perhaps also many types of cancers.

Project description:Transcription factor profiling of T cells containing stably integrated or transiently transfected HTLV-1 LTR. Nuclear extract from one million stably or transiently transfected Jurkat (CD4 T cell) cell line was extracted and labeled with TransSignal Probe mix (Panomics) and then hybridized to the array.
Project description:RNAs that are enriched in AGO2 Immunoprecipitated (IP) products or PIWIL1 IP products were identified from mouse(BALB/C) adult testes by examine the ratio of total RNA signal intensity to AGO2 IP RNA or PIWIL1 IP RNA signal intensity. Two-condition experiment,Total RNA extracted from mouse adult testes vs. AGO2 IP RNA extracted from mouse adult testes and total RNA extracted from mouse adult testes vs. PIWIL1 IP RNA extracted from mouse adult testes.
Project description:In order to identify miR-21 targets by a biochemical high-throughput method, we immunopurified RISC Complex and associated mRNAs in both control and miR-21 overexpressing Jurkat cells. Following transduction of miR-21 encoding construct (or a cognate control vector) in Jurkat cells, we used microarray technology to profile Total RNA, AGO2 Immunopurified RNA and control IgG purified RNA.
Project description:RIP-Chip was performed on DG75-eGFP, DG75-10/12, BCBL-1, BL41, BL41 B95.8 and Jijoye using anti-human Ago2 (11A9) antibodies. Anti-BrdU antibodies were used as controls for DG75-eGFP, DG75-10/12 and BCBL-1. Total RNA was used as control for BL41, BL41 B95.8 and Jijoye. Samples were analyzed on Affymetrix Gene ST 1.0 Arrays (2 independent biological replicates / sample) KSHV, EBV and cellular miRNA targets were determined by RIP-Chip using monoclonal antibodies to human Ago2
Project description:These experiments measure genome-wide RNA Pol II binding in precisely staged wild-type embryos at five time points spanning the maternal to zygotic transition (nuclear cycles 12 through 14) of Drosophila melanogaster. In addition, RNA Pol II binding at nuclear cycle 13 is measured in embryos mutant for either mei-41/ATR or zelda. To correlate RNA Pol II binding with replication stress, genome-wide profiles of Replication protein A (70kDa subunit, RpA-70 EGFP) were generated in parallel with RNA Pol II for both wild-type and zelda at nuclear cycle 13. Two replicates each for 5 time points for wild type RNA Pol II. Two replicates for mei-41 RNA Pol II, nuclear cycle 13. Two replicates for zelda RNA Pol II, nuclear cycle 13. Two replicates each for Rpa70-EGFP in wild-type or zelda, nuclear cycle 13, matched to the corresponding RNA Pol II sample.
Project description:The experiments were performed to monitor dynamics in WRKY transcription factor abundancies upon treatment with flg22, a peptide derived from the bacterial flagella. Mock-treated or WT seedlings treated for 2 h with flg22 were used to prepare crude nuclear lysates. Then pull downs were performed with an anti-all-WRKY antiserum to enrich for WRKY transcription factor proteins prior to MS.
