Study of Leukotriene B4 (LTB4) effect on primary human monocytes transcription profile
ABSTRACT: Leukotriene B4 (LTB4) is a potent lipid mediator of inflammation, implicated in numerous diseases including atherosclerosis. We have used primary human monocytes, which express both receptors, to analyze transcriptional responses to LTB4. Comparisons were made between LTB4- and vehicle-treated samples at the same time point. The analysis showed that expression of 72 genes was upregulated at least two-fold at two time points. These genes include multiple chemokines as well as some genes with unknown function. Keywords: time course Overall design: Cells were stimulated with LTB4 for various times. For each time point, there is one treated sample and one vehicle control. After isolation, each RNA sample is hybridized to duplicate CodeLink chips.

Project description:The objective of this study was to compare the transcriptional repertoire of mature human neutrophils before and after GM-CSF treatment by using oligonucleotide microarrays. Leukotriene B4 (LTB4) is an important pro-inflammatory lipid mediator generated by neutrophils upon activation. Granulocyte/macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) stimulation is known to enhance agonist-mediated LTB4 production of neutrophils within minutes, a process called “priming”. Here, we demonstrate that GM-CSF also limits the production of LTB4 by neutrophils via a transcriptional mechanism at later time points. We identified hematopoietic specific Ras homologous (RhoH)/translocation three four (TTF), which was induced following GM-CSF stimulation in neutrophils, as a key regulator in this process. Neutrophils derived from RhoH/TTF-deficient (Rhoh-/-) mice demonstrated increased LTB4 production upon activation compared with normal mouse neutrophils. Moreover, neutrophils from cystic fibrosis patients expressed enhanced levels of RhoH/TTF and generated less LTB4 upon activation compared with normal human neutrophils. Taken together, these data suggest that RhoH/TTF represents an inducible feedback inhibitor in neutrophils that is involved in the limitation of innate immune responses. Overall design: 3 healthy donors' blood were used for each group. Two groups were created. One group ("untreated"=N ) the RNA were extracted immediately after isolation of blood neutrophil. The second group ("Neu") blood neutrophils were incubated with GM-CSF (50 ng/ml) for 7 hours before RNA extraction.
Project description:Leukotriene (LT) D4 contributes to aberrant cytokine networks of classical Hodgkin lymphonoma, This study has investigated LTD4 induced gene expression and pathway in Hodgkin lymphonma cell line L1236. Overall design: Human Hodgkin lymphoma cells are treated with Leukotriene (LT) D4 for 1 hour and 8 hour respectively, the expression profile are compared to non-treated control cells and methanol treated vihicle controls at the two time points.
Project description:Eicosanoids are potent regulators of gene expression of inflammatory cells. Pro- (leukotrienes B4 and C4) and anti-indflammatory (lipoxins A4 and B4) eicosanoids have been described in the literature but the detailed impact of these lipid mediators on the gene expression pattern of monocytic cells has not been studied in detail. We cultured the permanent monocytic cell line MonoMac 6 for 12 h in the absence (solvent control) and presence of these eicosanoids and quantified the differential gene expression patterns using the microarray technology. Experiment Overall Design: MonoMac6 cells were grown according to the recommendations of the German Tissue and Cell Culture Collection (Braunschweig) to near confluency. Then 100 nM of the eicosanoids (leukotriene B4, leukotriene C4, lipoxin A4, lipoxin B4) were added to the culture medium as DMSO stock solution and the cells were further cultured for 12 h with the stimuli. Then the cells were harvested, washed and total RNA was extracted according to the Qiagen protocol. Total RNA was used for microarray hybridization.
Project description:We evaluated both the transcriptomic and inflammatory response in trout (O. mykiss) macrophages in primary cell culture stimulated with DAP-PGN (DAP; meso-diaminopimelic acid, PGN; peptidoglycan) from two strains of Escherichia coli (PGN-K12 and PGN-O111:B4) over time. Transcript profiling was assessed using function-targeted cDNA microarrays hibridation (n = 36) to differential responses to both PGNs that are both time and treatment dependen over trout macrophages. Wild type E. coli (K12) generated an increase in transcript number/diversity over time whereas PGN-O111:B4 stimulation resulted in a more specific and intense response. In line with this gene Ontology analysis (GO) highlights a specific transcriptomic remodelling for PGN-O111:B4 whereas results obtained for PGN-K12 shows a high similarity with a general LPS response where multiple functional classes are related to ribosome biogenesis or cellular metabolism Two-condition experiment, PGN vs. control cells. Biological replicates: 18 control, 18 treated. Dye-swap.
