Transcription profiling by array of M. musculus ventral midbrains of E14.5 Pitx3-/- and Pitx3+/+ mouse embryos to investigate gene-regulatory pathways of Pitx3
ABSTRACT: RNA was isolated from dissected ventral midbrains of E14.5 Pitx3-/- and Pitx3+/+ mouse embryos. 3 Experimental samples each consisting of 3 Pitx3-/- ventral midbrains were hybridized to reference RNA derived from 10 Pitx3+/+ ventral midbrains
Development of meso-diencephalic dopamine (mdDA) neurons requires the combined actions of the orphan nuclear receptor Nurr1 and the paired-like homeobox transcription factor Pitx3. Whereas all mdDA neurons require Nurr1 for expression of Th and survival, dependence on Pitx3 is displayed only by the mdDA subpopulation that will form the substantia nigra (SNc). Previously, we have demonstrated that Pitx3(-/-) embryos lack the expression of the retinoic acid (RA)-generating enzyme Ahd2, which is no ...[more]
Project description:Expression profiles of colorectal liver metastasis samples collected from Paul Brousse Hospital (France) and University Hospital Utrecht (The Netherlands). Patients are divided into a high-risk (DFS < 1 year) and a low-risk group (DFS < 1 year).
Project description:To identify mRNA substrates for the human RNase MRP complex, we examined the effects of siRNA-mediated depletion of RNase MRP (and RNase P) on the transcriptome of HEp-2 cells. The expression of two RNase MRP protein components, hPop1 and Rpp40, was knocked-down and after 48 hours mRNA was isolated from these cells as well as from cells transfected with an siRNA targeting the GFP mRNA (siEGFP), which was used as a control. The expression levels of mRNAs were analyzed on a genome-wide scale using 21K microarrays.
