Transcription profiling by array of mice spinal muscular atrophy type I fibroblasts
ABSTRACT: Characterization of the selectivity of SMN splicing modifiers in SMA type I fibroblasts by RNASeq In total 12 samples were analyzed, divided into four distinct groups (treated with SMN-C3 @ 500 nM; controls for SMN-C3; treated with SMN-C1 @ 100 nM; controls for SMN-C1) containing 3 replicates each.
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a genetic disease caused by mutation or deletion of the survival of motor neuron 1 (SMN1) gene. A paralogous gene in humans, SMN2, produces low, insufficient levels of functional SMN protein due to alternative splicing that truncates the transcript. The decreased levels of SMN protein lead to progressive neuromuscular degeneration and high rates of mortality. Through chemical screening and optimization, we identified orally available small molecules that shift th ...[more]

Project description:The function of a gene is closely connected to its expression specificity across tissues and cell types. RNA-Seq is a powerful quantitative tool to explore genome wide expression. The aim of the present study is to provide a comprehensive RNA-Seq dataset across the same 13 tissues for mouse and rat, two of the most relevant species for biomedical research. The dataset provides the transcriptome across tissues from three male C57BL6 mice and three male Han Wistar rats. We also describe our bioinformatics pipeline to process and technically validate the data. Principal component analysis shows that tissue samples from both species cluster similarly. By comparative genomics we show that many genes with high sequence identity with respect to their human orthologues have also a highly correlated tissue distribution profile and are in agreement with manually curated literature data for human. These results make us confident that the present study provides a unique resource for comparative genomics and will facilitate the analysis of tissue specificity and cross-species conservation in higher organisms.
Project description:The aim of this study was to compare the transcriptional changes that occur in the kidneys of mice administered cisplatin or DCA, or both, by RNA-seq. generation of RNA-seq datasets from mice subjected to 4 different treatments. 3 biological replicates per treatment. Saline treatment is control.
Project description:An X-chromosome exome sequencing analysis identified a mutation in O-GlcNAc transferase (OGT) (pL254F) in a family with X-linked intellectual disability (XLID). Affected patient lymohoblastoids exhibit decreased steady state OGT levels owing to an unstable protein compared to the unaffected, related male controls. Suprisingly, global O-GlcNAc levels remained remained unaltered. This prompted us to check the both protein and mRNA levels of the other cycling enzyme, O-GlcNAcase (OGA) which was also lowered. This implies that a compensation mechanism exists, however imperfect, owing to the disease state of the individuals. We performed glabal transcriptome analysis to assess any other changes in message between patients and controls. Our study highlights small differences in the global transcriptome of patient lymhoblastoids that have the L254F mutation in O-GlcNAc transferase when compared to familial controls using Illumina sequencing of total RNA
Project description:Purpose : We performed strand-specific RNA-seq analysis of CHO cells according to adaptation trajectory to identify the specific genes responded to the suspension adaptation. Result : Cell growth, replication, and nucleotide metabolism categories were enriched in up regulated clusters whereas cellular community category which contains focal adhesion related genes were enriched in down regulated clusters CHO-K1 mRNA profiles during suspension adaptation generated by RNA sequencing, in duplicate, using Illumina MiSeq.
Project description:We compare global gene expression changes in the Min6 cell line in response to altered glucose flux and pharmacological manipulation of the O-GlcNAc postranslational protein modification. Min6 cells were treated for 1hr in the following conditions: Low glucose (LG), high glucose (HG) and LG+GlcNAcstatin (LG+GNS). After treatment, total RNA was extracted and used for sequencing.
Project description:The aim of this study was to analyze the transcriptome of TER119+ fetal liver cells in the absence of the transcription factor KLF3 at murine embryonic day E14.5 Three wildtype (WT; Klf3+/+) and three knockout (KO; Klf3-/-) samples
Project description:Rationale: Asthma is a chronic inflammatory airway disease. The most common medications used for its treatment are β2-agonists and glucocorticosteroids, and one of the primary tissues that these drugs target in the treatment of asthma is the airway smooth muscle. We used RNA-Seq to characterize the human airway smooth muscle (HASM) transcriptome at baseline and under three asthma treatment conditions. Methods: The Illumina TruSeq assay was used to prepare 75bp paired-end libraries for HASM cells from four white male donors under four treatment conditions: 1) no treatment; 2) treatment with a β2-agonist (i.e. Albuterol, 1μM for 18h); 3) treatment with a glucocorticosteroid (i.e. Dexamethasone (Dex), 1μM for 18h); 4) simultaneous treatment with a β2-agonist and glucocorticoid, and the libraries were sequenced with an Illumina Hi-Seq 2000 instrument. The Tuxedo Suite Tools were used to align reads to the hg19 reference genome, assemble transcripts, and perform differential expression analysis using the protocol described in https://github.com/blancahimes/taffeta mRNA profiles obtained via RNA-Seq for four primary human airway smooth muscle cell lines that were treated with dexamethasone, albuterol, dexamethasone+albuterol or were left untreated.
Project description:The aim of this study is to assess the global transcriptome changes during the shedding of the flower, which normally takes around 6 or 7 days. We selected four time points (from day 0 to day 6) and three different tissues within the flower bud; distal, abscission and proximal zones with three biological replicates. RNA extraction, library prep and paired end sequencing was performed. Our special interest is try to describe the changes in the abscission zone and the two adjacent tissues in order to get a whole picture of the shedding process. We performed a de novo assembly by Trinity and detected the transcripts and expression changes across spatial and temporal comparisons.
