J. Endocrinol. 197, 201–12. Neonatal exposure to bisphenol A modifies the abundance of estrogen receptor alpha transcripts with alternative 5'-untranslated regions in the female rat preoptic area. 2007

Monje, L., Varayoud, J., Luque, E.H. and Ramos, J.G.

Notes: The authors investigated the effect of neonatal bisphenol A (BPA) exposure in rats on expression of estrogen receptor α (ERα) transcripts. Alternative ERα transcripts in preoptic area of treated and untreated rats were quantified using real-time RT-PCR. Reverse transcription was performed using 4µg of total RNA, 200pmol random primers and 300 units M-MLV Reverse Transcriptase. Real-time PCR was performed using SYBR® Green I to quantify amplified products. To determine if the changes in BPA-induced ERα transcript expression were caused by DNA methylation, the methylation status of the five ERα promoters was examined by bisulfite modification. Genomic DNA was isolated from rat tissue using the Wizard® Genomic DNA Purification Kit, denatured with NaOH, then treated with hydroquinone and sodium bisulfite. Prior to methylation-specific PCR, DNA was cleaned up using the Wizard® DNA Purification Resin as directed by the manufacturer. PCR products were cleaned up again using the Wizard® SV Gel and PCR Clean-Up System, then subjected to restriction enzyme digestion and agarose gel electrophoresis to reveal methylation-dependent sequence differences.

Jacobs, M.E., DeSouza, L.V., Samaranayake, H., Pearlman, R.E., Siu, K.W., and Klobutcher, L.A.

Notes: The authors wanted to learn more about the proteins that comprise the Tetrahymena
phagosome proteome. Proteins were isolated from phagosome preparations, denatured by adding 5mM dithiothreitol and heating to 60°C for 1 hour. The samples were cooled to room temperature and alkylated by incubation with 10mM iodoacetamide for 1 hour protected from light. Sequencing Grade Modified Trypsin, at a 1:20 concentration (wt/wt) with an equal volume of 50mM ammonium bicarbonate, was added to the sample and incubated overnight at 37°C. Each sample was analyzed by two-dimensional liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). Whole-cell Tetrahymena DNA was isolated using the Wizard® Genomic DNA Purification Kit protocol for isolating genomic DNA from plant tissue omitting the use of liquid nitrogen with mortar and pestle. The isolated DNA was then used for restriction digestion, ligation and sequencing. (3680)
