Project description:Further to our previous study (E-MTAB-5997), here we performed transcriptome profiling on Anlotinib-resistant NCI-H1975 and Anlotinib-treated Anlotinib-resistant NCI-H1975, and would like to understand the effects of Anlotinib on Anlotinib-resistant NCI-H1975 cell, compare the different transcriptome profiling on NCI-H1975 cells and Anlotinib-resistant NCI-H1975 cells, sought to find the biomarker for explaining Anlotinib resistance.
Project description:As part of the Dystrophia Myotonica Biomarker Discovery Initiative (DMBDI) a dataset was obtained from 35 participants, including 31 Myotonic Dystrophy type 1 (DM1) cases and four unaffected controls. All DM1 cases in this research were heterozygous for the abnormally expanded CTG repeat. The mode of the length of the DM1 CTG expansion (Modal Allele Length, MAL) was determined by small-pool PCR of blood DNA for 35/36 patients. For this work we did not attempt to measure the repeat length from muscle, due to a very high degree of repeat instability in muscle cells, and associated difficulties in its experimental measurement. One patient refused blood donation. For each of the 35 blood-donating patients mRNA expression profiling of blood was performed using Affymetrix GeneChip™ Human Exon 1.0 ST microarray. For 28 of 36 patients a successful quadriceps muscle biopsy was obtained. The muscle tissue was mRNA profiled using the same type of microarray. In total, a complete set of samples (blood and muscle) was obtained for 27 of 36 patients; samples were given a disease staging score based on muscle impairment rating. mRNA profiling was carried out by the GeneLogic service lab (on a fee-for-service basis) using standard Affymetrix hybridisation protocol.
Project description:PTK7 was identified from a meta-analysis of 1905 non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) samples across 12 datasets to be one of seven genes commonly up-regulated in lung adenocarcinoma (ADC). Using ADC cell lines NCI-H1299 and NCI-H2009, disruption of PTK7 resulted in decreased cell viability and induction of apoptosis. A xenotransplantation model of the cell lines with PTK7 knock-down also resulted in decreased tumor burden. We assayed gene expression in these cell lines after PTK7 knock-down by shRNA to uncover deregulated pathways and genes. 8 samples were analyzed. In each cell line, we knocked down PTK7 with 2 independent hairpins, and 2 control hairpins targeting luciferase and GFP. Thus, NCI-H1299 has 2 samples of PTK7 knock-down, and 2 samples of control knock down. NCI-H2009 has similar samples.
