Elavl1/HuR is a ubiquitous and conserved RNA-binding protein that binds to a U-rich RNA motif that shuttles between nucleus and cytoplasm. In epithelia, the elevated expression of HuR assumingly promotes degeneration and cancer suggesting that its generic suppression may provide clinical benefits. In this study we focused on biological and clinical functions of HuR in intestinal epithelial cells and we presented evidence that changes in HuR levels induce polarized distortions in these cells to support different pathologic outcomes. Here we study the differentiality in mRNA abundance between Control mice and mice overexpressing Elavl1 (TgATF-HuR). Control and TgATF-HuR mice were treated with Dimethylhydrazine (DMH)/Dextran Sodium Sulphate (DSS) for 60 days and tumors where dissected from large intestines; those with sizes between 10-15mm2 were pooled to generate samples with 4 tumors/sample and snap frozen. Three samples per genotype were used either for RIP analyses or total RNA extraction. Isolated RNA was used for microarray or qRT-PCR analyses.

Here we report the construction of a absA2 mutant strain which exhibited the classic precocious hyper-production of antibiotics and its complementation by an N-terminal triple-FLAG tagged version of AbsA2. The complemented and non-complemented absA2 mutant strains were used in large-scale time-course experiments to investigate the effect of deleting absA2 on gene expression at multiple time points and identify AbsA2 DNA binding sites in ChIP-on-chip studies using high-density microarrays.

In this study we focused on biological and clinical functions of HuR in intestinal epithelial cells and we presented evidence that changes in HuR levels induce polarized distortions in these cells to support different pathologic outcomes. In this experiment we investigate Elavl1 targets via Elavl1 Immunopercipitation (RIP-chip) by arrays and compare relative to background. Control and TgATF-HuR mice were treated with Dimethylhydrazine (DMH)/Dextran Sodium Sulphate (DSS) for 60 days and tumors where dissected from large intestines; those with sizes between 10-15mm2 were pooled to generate samples with 4 tumors/sample and snap frozen.

This experiment aimed at characterising the modulatory role of murine induced Neural Stem Cells (iNSCs) and Neural Stem Cells (NSCs) on macrophages (MPs) exposed to LPS in vitro. Naïve MPs were polarized into an M1-like phenotype with LPS, and then co-cultured with 1:1 ratios of iNSCs in a trans-well system that avoids cell-to-cell contacts. Naïve MPs, LPS-stimulated MPs and LPS-stimulated MPs co-cultured with NSCs were used as controls.

Studies have shown that Respiratory Burst Oxidase Homolog B (RBOHB) are involved in stress response in rice plants. Primers were developed for amplification via Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) of a region that contained a simple sequence repeat (SSR) in RBOHB. PCR was performed on 6 different varieties of Oryza sativa. PCR product was sequenced on an ABI 3730 capillary sequence machine. Sequence data was aligned to observe differences in SSR length between each rice variety.

Abf1 has been defined as a general regulatory factor involved in determining chromatin structure in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. As such, it plays a major role in a range of functions including DNA replication, transcriptional activation and gene silencing, as well as DNA repair. Previous studies have identified an Abf1 DNA consensus binding sequence and Abf1 binding at up to several hundred locations throughout the genome. Depletion of Abf1 in the cell, however, results in altered nucleosome structure at many thousands of sites throughout the yeast genome, suggesting a far greater role for Abf1 in chromatin structure and dynamics. Here, we examine genome-wide Abf1 binding using ChIP-Chip to measure its chromatin occupancy. Using a novel software package, Sandcastle, we detect 3,821 genomic positions at which Abf1 binds. We conducted a detailed bioinformatic analysis of these novel Abf1 binding sites, defining variations in the current consensus sequence and identifying many more genomic locations at which Abf1 can be found. These observations define the sites at which Abf1 occupancy determines chromatin structure, providing a framework for understanding how processes such as replication, transcription and DNA repair are organised within the genome.

The combination of Chromatin Immunoprecipitation and Massively Parallel Sequencing, or ChIP-Seq, has greatly advanced our genome-wide understanding of chromatin and enhancer structures. However, its resolution at any given genetic locus is limited by several factors. In applying ChIP-Seq to study the ribosomal RNA genes we found that a major limitation to resolution was imposed by the often dominant variability in sequence coverage provided by the massively parallel sequencing technology. Here we describe a simple numerical deconvolution approach that in large part corrects for this variability and significantly improves both the resolution and quantitation of protein-DNA interaction maps deduced from ChIP-Seq data. This approach has allowed us to study the in vivo organization of the RNA Polymerase I pre-initiation complexes that form at the promoters of the mouse and human ribosomal RNA genes. The data identify and map a Spacer Promoter and associated stalled polymerase in the intergenic spacer of the human ribosomal genes and show that a very similar Enhancer structure and organization to that found in rodents and even in lower vertebrates also exists in human.
