FEBS Lett. 579, 832-8. Phosphodiesterase inhibitors stimulate osteoclast formation via TRANCE/RANKL expression in osteoblasts: possible involvement of ERK and p38 MAPK pathways. 2006

Takami, M., Cho, E.S., Lee, S.Y., Kamijo, R. and Yim, M.

Notes: Mouse bone marrow cells and calvarial osteoblasts were cocultured for 6 days with or without 50 μM of IBMX. Total RNA was then isolated from the cells and cDNA templates prepared. cDNAs were subjected to PCR amplification with GoTaq® DNA Polymerase. Primers for mouse PDE4s, TRANCE, CTR, cathepsin K and GAPDH genes were used in this study. The PCR program was as follows: 32 (all mouse PDE4s, TRANCE, CTR, and cathepsin K) or 28 (GAPDH) cycles, after an initial denaturation step at 94°C for 3 minutes, then denaturation at 94°C for 30 seconds, annealing at 58°C for 45 seconds, and extension at 72°C for 60 seconds, with a final extension at 72°C for 10 minutes.

Plant Physiol. 137(2), 557–66. Beyond complementation. Map-based cloning in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. 2005

Rymarquis, L.A., Handley, J.M., Thomas, M. and Stern, D.B.

Notes: These authors describe map-based cloning tools for Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, (green yeast). In this case-based study of existing and projected resources for C. reinhardtii mapping, mcd4 and mcd5 mutants were mapped by crossing to the infertile strain known as Chlamydomonas grossii, S1-D2, with several known marker sites. To reduce the time and expense of mapping, bulked segregant analysis (BSA) and marker duplexing were evaluated. In BSA, DNAs from multiple segregating progeny (up to six in this study) are combined, and results from PCR-based markers are examined for significant bias from a roughly equal contribution from each parent. This case study used 57–72 markers to span the 1,107-cM genome using approximately 3,350 PCR amplifications. The researchers picked single colonies from a plate and placed each colony in a hypotonic EDTA solution. After boiling for 5 minutes, the supernatant was collected by centrifugation and the DNA quantitated. Twenty nanograms of DNA thus isolated was used as the template for PCR. The reaction included GoTaq® DNA polymerase with the enhancers 8.5%glycerol and 0.83% formamide in a 30µl reaction. Forty cycles of amplification were performed and the results were analyzed by agarose gel electrophoresis. The various amplification reactions included the use of BSA and both monoplex and duplex reactions with amplicons of 90bp–625bp. (3279)

Nucl. Acids Res. 33(4), e41. Targeted 'knockdown' of spliceosome function in mammalian cells. 2005

Matter, N. and Konig, H.

Notes: To examine why there are two splicing systems present in multicellular organisms, the authors used morpholino oligomers complementary to the branch-site recognition elements of U2 or U12 small nuclear RNA to specifically suppress the splicing function in EL4 and Jurkat cells. After transfection with the morpholino oligos, the cells were harvested, and total RNA was isolated followed by DNase-treatment. In a 20µl reverse transcription reaction, 0.8µg total RNA was reverse transcribed with 100ng oligo(dT)15 primer and 200 units of M-MLV Reverse Transcriptase, RNase H Minus. PCR was then performed using 5µl of the diluted (1:10) reverse transcriptase reaction with 2.5 units GoTaq® DNA polymerase in a 50µl reaction for 28–31 cycles. (3278)
