It is believed that hemopoietic stem cells (HSC), which colonize the fetal liver (FL) rapidly, expand to establish a supply of HSCs adequate for maintenance of hemopoiesis throughout life. Accordingly, FL HSCs are actively cycling as opposed to their predominantly quiescent bone marrow counterparts, suggesting that the FL microenvironment provides unique signals that support HSC proliferation and self-renewal. We now report the generation and characterization of mice with a mutant allele of Baf2 ...[more]
Project description:Investigation of whole genome gene expression level changes in response to different light conditions of the T. reesei QM9414 deletion strains delta-blr1, delta-blr2 and delta env1 cultivated on 1% microcrystalline cellulose. Perception and proper interpretation of environmental signals is crucial for survival in any natural habitat. Although the biotechnological workhorse Trichoderma reesei (Hypocrea jecorina) is predominantly known for its capability of efficient plant cell wall degradation, recent studies show that it has not lost its evolutionary heritage. Transmission of nutrient signals via the heterotrimeric G protein pathway has been shown to be influenced by light. We show that this interconnection is mainly established by the light regulatory protein ENV1 and the phosducin-like protein PhLP1 via mutual transcriptional regulation and influence on GNB1 (G protein beta subunit) function. ENV1 thereby exerts a more severe effect on gene transcription than BLR1 or BLR2. Lack of either one of the photoreceptors or PhLP1, GNB1 or GNG1 leads to a partial shutdown of processes upregulated in light, indicating that heterotrimeric G protein signalling exerts its major function in light and is a target of the light response machinery. Consequently, signals transmitted via the G protein pathway are of different relevance in light and darkness. Investigation of regulation of glycoside hydrolases as one of the major output pathways of this mechanism revealed that 79% of all genes belonging to this group, representing all GH-families available in T. reesei, are potentially responsive to light. We conclude that ENV1 is a key factor in connecting nutrient signalling with light response and establishes a signalling output pathway independent of BLR1 and BLR2. We used two biological replicates of three T. reesei strains (delta-blr1, delta-blr2 and delta-env1), cultivated in constant light (LL, 1800 lux) or constant darkness (DD) on microcrystalline cellulose. The strains used in this study were cultivated, hybridized and analyzed together with strains and samples from GSE27581; the corresponding wild-type strain QM9414 samples have accession numbers GSM683732, GSM683733, GSM683734 and GSM683735.
Project description:Investigation of whole genome gene expression level changes in Plasmodium falciparum 3D7 delta-PfPuf2 mutant, compared to the wild-type strain 3D7. The mutation engineered into this strain render tanslational control. The mutants analyzed in this study are further described in Miao J, Li J, Fan Q, Li X, Li X, Cui L.2010. The Puf-family RNA-binding protein PfPuf2 regulates sexual development and sex differentiation in the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. J Cell Sci. 123(7):1039-49 (PMID 20197405). A 12 chip study using total RNA recovered from six separate wild-type cultures of Plasmodium falciparum 3D7 at gametocyte stage III (three cultures) and stage V (three cultures) and six separate cultures of dalta PfPuf2 mutant at gametocyte stage III (three cultures) and stage V (three cultures). Each chip measures the expression level of 5,367 genes from Plasmodium falciparum 3D7 with 45-60 mer probes with two replicates on final array of 71618 probes.
Project description:Alterations in genes for penicillin-binding proteins (pbp) are well-known determinants for the resistance of Streptococcus pneumoniae to B-lactam antibiotics. Surprisingly, some mutations in non-pbp genes were also found to contribute to B-lactam resistance. Two of them discovered in the piperacillin resistant mutants P106 and P104, affect the expression of cpoA (encoding a glycosyltransferase) and of the rgtABCDHR cluster (encoding two small membrane proteins, an ABC transporter and a regulatory two-component system), respectively. cpoA and rgtABCDHR are involved in maintaining the synthesis and the proper ratio of the two major membrane glycolipids, and deletions in these genes led to complex phenotypes. In attempts to identify genetic determinants for these phenotypes, the global trancription patterns of the deletion mutants R6 delta cpoA, R6 delta rgtA and R6 delta rgtD were compared to that of the parent strain R6.

Each chip measures the expression level of 4,302 genes from Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium.
Project description:Transcriptional profiling of A. nidulans comparing starvation for 0 (reference), 12 and 24 h. The main objective was to identify genes specifically regulated during starvation by atmA and xprG. The results of the experiment were further validated by real-time PCR. Experimental procedure: Three A. nidulans strains were used in this study: WT, delta atmA and delta xprG. Strains were grown on minimal medium for 24 h (0 h starvation reference), then exposed to 12 and 24 h starvation. atmA: ATM, Ataxia-Telangiectasia mutated; Malavazi, I., Savoldi, M., Da Silva Ferreira, M.

Project description:AraC is an Escherichia coli transcription factor that regulates genes in response to the presence/absence of arabinose. We used transcription profiling to determine RNA levels in Escherichia coli K-12 strain MG1655 and MG1655 delta araC grown either in the absence or the presence of arabinose. Thus, we identified known and novel AraC-regulated genes. Data presented here are raw .CEL files as well as fully analysed data using GeneSpring
