Project description:We generated the SRSF10 -/- mice, and collected their embryonic heart at 13.5 and controls. Then, we extracted RNAs of embryonic heart and performed next generation sequencing. By comparing sequcing data from WT and SRSF10 -/- samples, we profiled the alternative splicing events and gene expression regulated by SRSF10 during mouse heart development process. E13.5 embryonic heart mRNA profiles of wild type (WT) and SRSF10-/- mice were generated by deep sequencing, using Illumina HiSeq2000.
Project description:Splicing factor SRSF10 is known to function as a sequence-specific splicing activator. Here, we used RNA-seq coupled with bioinformatics analysis to identify the extensive splicing network regulated by SRSF10 in chicken cells. We found that SRSF10 promoted both exon inclusion and exclusion. Functionally, many of SRSF10-verified alternative exons are linked to pathways of stress and apoptosis. Importantly, reconstituted SRSF10 in knockout cells recovered wild-type splicing patterns and considerably rescued the stress-related defects. Together, our results provide mechanistic insight into SRSF10-regulated alternative splicing events in vivo and demonstrate that SRSF10 plays a crucial role in cell survival under stress conditions.

Project description:In order to get an insight into the complex interplay of miRNAs in dietary restriction, we profiled the small RNA polulation of wild-type and eat-2(ad1116) worms on Day 1 and Day 8 of adulthood by Next Generation sequencing. We compared the normalized expression of wild-type vs eat-2(ad1116) on either day 1 or day 8 and found that most of the miRNAs were distinctly upregulated in eat-2(ad1116) on day 1. We performed Next Generation sequencing to compare miRNA profiles of wild-type and eat-2(ad1116) at Day 1 and Day 8
