Gene expression analysis of Panc1 pancreatic cancer cells with shRNA mediated control (GFP) or ZEB1 knockdown

ABSTRACT: Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a fundamental process in development and disease. If aberrantly activated it is a trigger for tumour progression and metastasis (Thiery et al 2009 Cell). It is now known that EMT activation is also associated with the maintenance of stem-cell properties (Mani et al. 2008 Cell). Since Zinc-finger enhancer binding transcription factor 1 (ZEB1) is a crucial EMT activator, we analyzed the changes in the gene expression profile that accompany shRNA mediated loss of ZEB1 in Panc1 pancreatic cancer cells. Panc1 is a cell line that exhibits relatively high ZEB1 levels and changes to a more benign phenotype upon ZEB1 knock down (Wellner et al. 2009 Nature Cell Biology). Panc1 cells were stably transfected with control (GFP) or ZEB1 shRNA. Upon puromycin selection, single cell clones were picked and characterized. Cells from two control versus two ZEB1 knockdown clones were harvested, total RNA was isolated and processed to hybridization.
