Project description:we report a transcriptome-wide comparative investigation between surface and cave species in Sinocyclocheilus. De novo transcriptome assemblies were performed on surface and cave species; then the Sinocyclocheilus contigs were annotated with Gene Ontology. RNA-Seq assays revealed reduced transcription of a series of visual phototransduction and retinal disease related genes in cave-dwelling species compared with surface species. Degeneration of the retina in Sinocyclocheilus cavefish might occur in a lens-independent way by the down-regulation of several transcriptional factors, which have direct roles in retina development and maintenance, such as crx, rorb and Wnt pathway members. Examination of 2 different eye samples in 2 Sinocyclocheilus species.
Project description:To overview compound-responsive genes in fibroblast, we performed microarray analysis of ~63,000 genes in compound-treated fibroblast of LSND3 Overall design: We treated the fibroblasts with 1μM compound, extracted RNAs from compound- and non-treated fibroblasts at 24 h after treatment, and compared the gene expression ratio between the two groups. Two duplicate experiments.
Project description:The virulon of Staphyloccocus aureus is controlled by intricate connections between transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulators including proteins and small non coding RNAs (sRNAs). Most of the sRNAs regulate gene expression through base-pairings with mRNAs. Here, we have determined the transcriptome of RsaI sRNA of S. aureus. Overall design: Global overview of RsaI impact on gene regulation, a comparative transcriptomic analysis was performed on total RNAs extracted from the WT HG001 strain, the isogenic HG001∆rsaI mutant strain, and the same mutant strain complemented with a plasmid expressing RsaI under the control of its own promoter
