Project description:Human intelligence demonstrates one of the highest heritabilities among human quantitative traits. Phenotypically discordant monozygotic twins provide a way to identify loci responsible for normal-range intelligence. We conducted array-based genome-wide gene expression analysis aiming to identify genes displaying significant difference among monozygotic twin pairs manifesting between-co-twins IQ differences. Total RNA was isolated from B-lymphoblastoid cell lines and applied to Affymetirx arrays after reverse transcription. 17 twin pairs (34 subjects) were recruited in this study.
Project description:Microarrays were used to analyse global gene expression changes in tumors from wild-type mice treated with GW9662 RNA was isolated (RNeasy Mini Kit, Qiagen) from progestin/DMBA induced mammary tumors from wild-type mice treated with GW9662
Project description:ABSTRACT: Condensin is a central regulator of mitotic genome structure, with mutants showing poorly condensed chromosomes and profound segregation defects. Here we identify the fission yeast NCT complex, comprising the Nrc1 BET-family tandem bromodomain protein (SPAC631.02), Casein Kinase II (CKII) and several TAFs, as a novel regulator of condensin function (where NCT mutants restore the formation of segregation-competent chromosomes in cells containing defective condensin). Synchronous ChIP-seq shows that NCT and condensin bind similar genomic regions, but only briefly co-localize during the periods of chromosome condensation and decondensation. These results are consistent with a model where NCT targets CKII to chromatin in a cell cycle-directed manner to modulate the activity of condensin during chromosome condensation and decondensation. DATA: Study includes ChIP-seq of fission yeast H3-K4Me3, H3-K36Me3, TBP, Taf7, Nrc1, Cka1 from aynchronous cells; Nrc1 and Cut3 (representing condensin) from four synchronized cell-cycle stages estimated as G2/M, Metaphase, Anaphase and G1/S.
Project description:This is a dataset generated by the Drosophila Regulatory Elements modENCODE Project led by Kevin P. White at the University of Chicago. It contains genome-wide binding profile of the factor CBP from E0-4h generated by ChIP and analyzed on Illumina Genome Analyzer. Keywords: Epigenetics For data usage terms and conditions, please refer to http://www.genome.gov/27528022 and http://www.genome.gov/Pages/Research/ENCODE/ENCODEDataReleasePolicyFinal2008.pdf A validated dataset is comprised of three biological replicates for ChIP-chip experiments and two replicates for ChIP-seq and meet the modENCODE quality standards. The control sample is the chromatin Input used for ChIP. Most factors binding profiles are generated by using specific antibodies for the protein of interest. However, some factors have been tagged by GFP in a transgenic line. In that case, ChIP is generated using an anti-GFP antibody. This submission represents the ChIP-seq component of the study
Project description:Genome-wide mRNA expression profiles of 200 primary gastric tumors from the Singapore patient cohort. Gastric cancer (GC) is the second leading cause of global cancer mortality, with individual gastric tumors displaying significant heterogeneity in their deregulation of various oncogenic pathways. We aim to identify major oncogenic pathways in GC that robustly impact patient survival and treatment response. We used an in silico strategy based on gene expression signatures and connectivity analytics to map patterns of oncogenic pathway activation in 25 unique GC cell lines, and in 301 primary gastric cancers from three independent patient cohorts. Of 11 oncogenic pathways previously implicated in GC, we identified three predominant pathways (proliferation/stem cell, NF-kB, and Wnt/b-catenin) deregulated in the majority (>70%) of gastric tumors. Using a variety of proliferative, Wnt, and NF-kB-related assays, we experimentally validated the pathway predictions in multiple GC cell lines showing similar pathway activation patterns in vitro. Patients stratified at the level of individual pathways did not exhibit consistent differences in clinical outcome. However, patients grouped by oncogenic pathway combinations demonstrated robust and significant survival differences (e.g., high proliferation/high NF-kB vs. low proliferation/low NF-kB), suggesting that tumor behavior in GC is likely influenced by the combined effects of multiple oncogenic pathways. Our results demonstrate that GCs can be successfully taxonomized by oncogenic pathway activity into biologically and clinically relevant subgroups. Experiment Overall Design: Profiling of 200 primary gastric tumors on Affymetrix GeneChip Human Genome U133 Plus 2.0 Array. All tumors were collected with approvals from the National Cancer Centre, Singapore; the Research Ethics Review Committee; and signed patient informed consent.
Project description:Genome-wide mRNA expression profiles of 100 primary and matched non-malignant tissues of HCC patients from a Singapore patient cohort. HCC is a hetergenous disease and it is important to understand the underlying molecular mechanisms. Here, we studied the role of microRNAs in HCC by integrating microRNA and gene expression profiles of HCC patients. Profiling of 100 primary and adjacent non-malignant HCC tissue samples on Agilent two-color whole human genome gene expression microarray (design G4112F). All tissues were collected with approvals from the National Cancer Centre, Singapore; the Research Ethics Review Committee; and signed patient informed consent.
Project description:We used microarray profiling in erythroid cells to uncover TAL1 dependent genes in a hematopoietic differentiation context. Differentiated ex vivo hematopoietic multipotential progenitors isolated from adult peripheral blood. The knockdown of TAL1 (KD) was induced in pro-erythroblasts (Days 8 and 9 of differentiation) using lentivirus-delivered shRNA. A scramble (scr) shRNA sequence was used as a negative control.
Project description:The association of host histones with parvoviral DNA is poorly understood. We analyzed the chromatinization and histone acetylation of canine parvovirus DNA during infection by confocal imaging and in situ proximity ligation assay combined with chromatin immunoprecipitation and high-throughput sequencing. We found that at late infection parvovirus replication bodies were rich in histones bearing modifications characteristic of transcriptionally active chromatin, i.e. histone H3 lysine acetylation (H3K27ac). The H3K27ac, in particular, was located in close proximity to the viral DNA-binding protein NS1. Importantly, our results show for the first time that in the chromatinized parvoviral genome, particularly the two viral promoters were rich in H3K27ac. Histone acetyltransferase (HAT) inhibitorefficiently interfered with expression of viral proteins and infection progress. Altogether, our data suggest that acetylation of histones on parvoviral DNA is essential for viral gene expression and completion of viral life cycle. Examination of H3K27 acetylation in CPV infected and non-infected NLFK (Norden laboratory feline kidney) cells. Please note that the result in this study, considering the sequencing, is the fact that the viral genome is chromatinized. Processed data in this case would be the aligned read percentages in control cells (of which 0% aligns to parvoviral genome) and infected cells (of which ~9% only aligns to parvoviral genome and not to the cat genome), which is basically the output of the read aligner software without further processing steps (no peaks or regions were identified for the associated publication). Therefore no processed data was provided, and an exception to GEO processed data requirement was made.
