Project description:Porcine respiratory and reproductive syndrome virus (PRRSV) is a virus infecting swine and causes swine abortion. Previously, non-structural protein 11 (Nsp11) from PRRSV was shown to have inhibitory function to type I IFN signaling. In this project, we want to see in addition to type I IFN, whether other cellular pathways are influenced by Nsp11 systemtically. A cell line stably expressing PRRSV Nsp11 was established, designated as MARC-Nsp11 cells, and an RNA microarray was conducted using these cells and WT MARC-145 cells MARC-145 and MARC-Nsp11 cells were seeded one day prior to experiments and total cellular RNAs were extracted using Trizol (Invitrogen) and purified by RNeasy mini kit (Qiagen). The quantity and quality of RNA were determined using an Align 2100 bioanalyzer (Agilent Technologies, Palo, Alto, CA, USA), and the RNA integrity was determined above 7. The RNA samples were then subjected to microarray using Human Gene 1.0 ST arrays (Affymetrix UK Ltd, High Wycombe, UK) at the Keck Biotechnology Center, University of Illinois, Urbana, IL). The microarray was repeated twice in duplicates each.
Project description:The transcriptome of the amphipod Echinogammarus marinus was sequenced after exposure to hypoxia following acclimation to different temperatures using 100BP paired-end Illumina HiSeq sequencing. Amphipods were acclimated to two temperatures, 10 or 20 °C, for one week before individuals were then acutely exposed to normoxic (80% air saturation) or hypoxic conditions (30% air saturation) at 10 °C (n = 5 per experimental treatment).
