Project description:We analyzed the genome-wide chromatin states in Zscan4 positive ES cells (Em+) and Zscan4 negative ES cells (Em-) by using FACS-sorted MC1-ZE7 ES cells. H3K27 hyperacetylation and DNA demethylation were detected in heterochromatic regions of Em+ cells. These results suggested that the heterochromatin is activated in Zscan4 positive state.

Project description:By using FACS-sorted MC1-ZE7 ES cells, we analyzed the genome-wide distribution of H3K27ac and DNA methylation in Zscan4 positive ES cells (Em+) and Zscan4 negative ES cells (Em-). H3K27 hyperacetylation and DNA demethylation were detected in heterochromatic regions of Em+ cells, but not Em- cells. These results suggested that the Zscan4 state takes "open" chromatin conformation in ES cells. H3K27ac in Zscan4 positive and negative cells
Project description:Micro RNA (miRNA) profiling of breast cancer subtype was demonstrated using RT-PCR. We present herein two cases with miRNA profiling in estrogen receptor (ER)-positive and -negative breast cancer. The level of miR-181a expression in ER-positive cancer was higher than in ER-negative cancer, while expression of miR-27a, -107 and -195 was lower in ER-positive when compared with ER-negative cancer. Overall design: qPCR-micro RNA expression profiling. Six samples (triplicate, sample1: reference, sample2; control)
Project description:Transcriptional profiling of GIF-5 mouse gastric epithelial cells comparing CD133-positive and CD133-negative cells. The former formed CD133-positive and CD133-negative cells while the latter only CD133-negative cells, suggesting that CD133-positive cells are mother cells. The former produced differentiated type tumors while the latter undifferentiated types in vivo, indicating a relationship between CD133-expression and glandular structure formation. One-condition experiment, CD133-positive vs. CD133-negative cells. 2 replicates.
