Project description:Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a diverse category of transcripts with poor conservation and have expanded greatly in primates, particularly in their brain. We identified a lncRNA, which has acquired 16 microRNA response elements (MREs) for miR-143-3p in the Catarrhini branch of primates. This lncRNA termed LncND (neuro-development) gets expressed in neural progenitor cells and then declines in mature neurons. Binding and release of miR-143-3p, by LncND, can control the expression of Notch. Its expression is highest in radial glia cells in the ventricular and outer subventricular zones of human fetal brain. Down-regulation of LncND in neuroblastoma cells reduced cell proliferation and induced neuronal differentiation, an effect phenocopied by miR-143-3p over-expression and supported by RNA-seq analysis. These findings support a role for LncND in miRNA-mediated regulation of Notch signaling in the expansion of the neural progenitor pool of primates and hence contributing to the rapid growth of the cerebral cortex. SHSY5Y cells treated either with miR-143-3p mimic or 100 nM of siRNA specific for LncND were sequenced on NextSeq500 platform. Scrambled siRNA or miRNA sequences were used as a negative control.
Project description:The trace element manganese is essential for normal development for all the organisms. Overexposure of manganese may leads to multiple neuronal disorders such as Parkinson, manganism. To explore the molecular mechanism of manganese induced neurotoxicity, gene expression profiling was performed on human neuroblastoma SHSY-5Y cells. Cells were exposed to sub-lethal concentration of manganese (100 μM) for 24 hrs. Our result demonstrates that manganese alter multiple biological pathways including chromatin assembly, neurogenesis and apoptotic pathways.Cells grown in 75mm2 flask. three replicates for each sample SHSY5Y cells grown in MEM:F12 media (1:1) were treated with manganese and total RNA was isolated from cells after 24 hour exposure Three replicate were used for the experiment
Project description:The main scientific objective of the project was to investigate whether Lamin A/C could be involved in neuroblastoma differentiation. Moreover, taking into account the significance of differentiation stage in the neuroblastoma tumor progression we have also studied a possible role of Lamin A/C in the tumorigenesis of this neuronal cancer. As differentiating stimulus we used the all-trans retinoic acid (RA), the most effective compound which has been shown to induce differentiation in neuroblastoma cells. To get insight into the impairment of cell differentiation produced by the LMNA (Lamin A/C) silencing in SHSY5Y cells, we compared the gene expression profile of control and silenced cells both in Retinoic Acid treated and untreated samples, using the one-color Agilent microarray platform. Four condition experiment: cells infected with a mock vector (Mock cells), treated and untreated with retinoic acid (RA); cells infected with a silencing vector for LMNA (LMNA-KD cells), treated and untreated with retinoic acid.
Project description:To gain an insight into the molecular mechanisms by which bilirubin induces toxicity, we exposed human MCF7 and SHSY5Y cell lines to 50 uM bilirubin (which equates to 6.39 uM of unconjugated bilirubin) for 4 hours. The cells were then washed with PBS and the RNA extracted using Tri-Reagent/1-bromo-3-chloropropane phase separation. The data was extracted using GenomeStudio and normalized/analyzed using ArrayTrack.
Project description:Use of human whole blood for transcriptomic analysis has potential advantages over the use of isolated immune cells for studying the transcriptional response to pathogens and their products. Whole blood stimulation can be carried out in a laboratory without the expertise or equipment to isolate immune cells from blood, with the added advantage of being able to undertake experiments using very small volumes of blood. Toll like receptors (TLRs) are a family of pattern recognition receptors which recognise highly conserved microbial products. Using the TLR2 ligand (Pam3CSK4) and the TLR4 ligand (LPS) human whole blood was stimulated for 0, 1, 3, 6, 12 or 24 hours at which times mRNA was isolated and a comparative microarray was undertaken. A common NFκB transcriptional programme was identified following both TLR2 and TLR4 ligation which peaked at between 3 to 6 hours including upregulation of many of the NFκB family members. In contrast an interferon transcriptional response was observed following TLR4 but not TLR2 ligation as early as 1 hour post stimulation and peaking at 6 hours. These results recapitulate the findings observed in previously published studies using isolated murine and human myeloid cells indicating that in vitro stimulated human whole blood can be used to interrogate the transcriptional kinetics response of innate cells to TLR ligands. Our study demonstrates that with a systems biology approach analysis of mRNA isolated from human whole blood can delineate both the temporal response and the key transcriptional differences following TLR2 and TLR4 ligation. 6 healthy human volunteers. 1ml whole blood stimulated in vitro with either LPS (1ng/ml), Pam3CSK4 (200ng/ml) or media for 0, 1, 3, 6 12 or 24 hours.
Project description:Analysis of knockdown of SDHD with or without knockdown of CDKN1C or SLC22A18 at gene expression level. The hypothesis tested in this study was to determine whether the gene expression signature following SDHD knockdown together with SLC22A18 or CDKN1C more closely resembles the signature found in tumors than the signature resulting from SDHD knockdown alone. Overall design: Total RNA obtained from SNB19 and SHSY5Y cells with single or double knockdown of SDHD and CDKN1C or SLC22A18 compared to scrambled control
Project description:By using high-density DNA microarrays, we analyzed the gene-expression profile of SHSY5Y neuroblastoma cells after treatment with cobalt chloride Overall design: RNA was extracted from SHSY5Y cells after treatment with 0, 100, or 200 µM cobalt chloride and analyzed with Affymetrix Human Exon 1.0ST microarrays.
