Transcriptomes of mesonephros- vs. ovary-derivd Gli1+ cells
ABSTRACT: This goal of this microarray analysis is to determine whether the mesonephros-derived theca cells exhibt a different gene expression profile from that of the whole theca cell population Overall design: The mesonephros-derived (n=3, Tamoxifen at E12.5, E14.5 and E16.5) and the neonatal ovary-derived Gli1-positive cells (n=3 Tamoxifen at P1-3 via lactating dams), were isolated from the adult ovaries of Gli1-CreERT2; Rosa-LSL-tdTomato mice at 2 months of age and were sorted by FACS

Project description:Purpose: to determine cellular heterogeneity of mesenchymal Gli1-positive cells from colon using single cell RNAse (10xGenomics); Summary: We determined 8 disctinct sub-populations of mesenchymal cells, remaining non-Gli1 epithelial cells formed a distinct separete cluster serving as a internal control of the single cells sequencing procedure Overall design: Gli1-tdTomato cells were sorted using FACS (tdTomato positvity), single cell RNA sequencing was perfomed (for details see Degirmenci et al, in prep)
Project description:Notch signaling defines a conserved, fundamental pathway, responsible for determination in metazoan development and is widely recognized as an essential component of lineage specific differentiation and stem cell self-renewal in many tissues including the hematopoietic system. Until recently, the majority of studies in the hematopoietic system focused on Notch signaling in lymphocyte differentiation and knowledge of individual Notch receptor roles in early hematopoiesis has been limited due to a paucity of genetic tools available To fate-map Notch receptor expression and pathway activity in the hematopoietic system we used tamoxifen-inducible CreER knock-in mice for individual Notch receptors in combination to a novel Notch reporter strain (Hes1GFP) and a conditional gain of function allele of Notch2 receptor (Rosa-lsl-ICN2). Bone marrow lineage negative, cKit+, Sca1- cells were sorted from Rosa-lsl-ICN2 Mx1-cre+ mice or Mx1-cre+ littermates for RNA extraction and hybridization on Affymetrix microarrays
Project description:The goal of this study is to compare the transcriptome of mouse beta-cells expressing mutant constitutively active Glucokinase versus wild-type Glucokinase. Overall design: RNA profiles of pancreatic islets from 5-6 week old transgenic mice expressing mutant GCK ( Y214C) (Pdx1Cre-ER; Rosa-LSL-Y214C-GCK) and from their control littermates (Rosa-LSL-Y214C-GCK) were generated by deep sequencing
Project description:Differential gene expression was analyzed for FACS sorted Math1::Cre; ROSA-tdTomato from hand dissected cochlear nuclei of wild type and Hoxa2/Hoxb2 mutant mice Overall design: In order to investigate the role of Hoxa2 and Hoxb2 transcription factors in a subset of cells of the cochlear nucleus, we generated double conditional knock-out by crossing the deleter line Math1::Cre crossed with Rosa tdTomato; Hoxa2fl/fl; Hoxb2fl/fl and Rosa tdTomato wild type background. FACS sorted cells from hand dissected cochlear nuclei were than processed and RNA-seq performed (see extract protocol and library construction protocol).
Project description:Increased expression of GLI1 is associated with poor prognosis for some breast cancer subtypes. A conditional transgenic GLI1 expressing mouse model, with or without heterozygous deletion of Trp53, was used to generate and study GLI1 induced mammary gland tumours. Tumour tissue was serially orthotopically transplanted for at least 10 generations in NSG mice.
Project description:Gli1 is necessary for the progression from chronic gastric inflammation to metaplasia in the stomach. We therefore compared the expression patterns between 6-month H. felis infected WT and Gli1-/- stomachs. Pooled tissue from the gastric fundi of 3 mice per group. Groups are WT, WT + H. felis (6 months), Gli1-/-, and Gli1-/- +H. felis (6 months). All the infected and control mice were obtained from the same experiment.
Project description:SHH signaling pathway is activated in many type of cancers. However, the role of its activation in particular type of cancer was poorly understood. The GLI family transcription factor GLI1 is the effector of Shh pathway activation and functions as oncogene. Our goal of research is to identify the GLI1 targets in desmoplastic medulloblastomas. We used microarrays to obtain the global gene expression profiles in cells transformed by GLI1 and identified distinct classes of genes by comparing with those of desmoplastic medulloblastomas Overall design: RK3E cells were transformed by GLI1 and the gene expression profiles were compared with control RK3E cells. Genes obtained from this analysis were compared with those of desmoplastic medulloblastomas

Project description:We sought to determine the effects of over-expression of Gli1 on gene expression in C2C12 myotube cultures. C2C12 myoblasts were induced to differentiate for 4 days. At that time, when >80% of nuclei were incorporated into multi-nucleated syncitial myotubes, we infected the cultures with recombinant adenovirus expressing GFP alone or GFP and a full length human Gli1. Media was changed 12 hours later. Cultures were lysed 60 hours after the initial infection. Gli1 over-expression induces de-differentiation of myotubes and proliferation of myoblasts. Results provide insight into the molecular basis of SHH signaling on skeletal muscle cells.
