Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 104, 12796-12800. Metabolic plasticity during mammalian development is directionally dependent on early nutritional status. 2007

Gluckman PD, Lillycrop KA, Vickers MH, Pleasants AB, Phillips ES, Beedle AS, Burdge GC, Hanson MA.

Notes: To examine how exposure to leptin in utero affects hepatic gene expression and epigenetic status in adulthood, pregnant Wistar rats were fed a standard diet or 30% undernutrition. The three-day-old pups were exposed to saline or leptin for 10 days, weaned and either fed a standard or high-fat diet. On day 170, the rats were sacrificed and tissues snap frozen. Five micrograms of genomic DNA was isolated from rat liver using the Wizard® SV Genomic DNA Purification System. Then 25ng of the purified DNA was digested with methylation-sensitive restriction enzymes, and the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARα) fragments were amplified by real-time PCR.

Clinica Chimica Acta 381, 171-175. Microsatellite mutation in the maternally/paternally transmitted D18S51 locus: two cases of allele mismatch in the child. 2007

Narkuti, V., Vellanki, R.N., Gandhi, K.P., Doddapaneni, K.K., Yelavarthi, P.D. and Mangamoori, L.N.

Notes: The authors describe two cases of paternity dispute, one with a maternally mismatched allele at the D18S51 locus and a second with a paternally mismatched D18S51 allele. Seventeen autosomal STR loci were analyzed using the PowerPlex® 16 System and AmpFlSTR® Identifiler® kit. Amplifications were performed using a GeneAmp® PCR System 9700, and amplification products were detected using an ABI PRISM® 310 Genetic Analyzer. Y-STR loci and mitochondrial DNA hypervariable regions HV1 and HV2 were also examined. Sequence analysis of the D18S51 locus revealed an expansion of the maternal allele by one repeat unit in one case and an expansion of the paternal allele by two repeat units in the second case.

Nucl. Acids Res. 35, 2390–2402. Molecular mechanism of upregulation of survivin transcription by the AT-rich DNA-binding ligand, Hoechst33342: evidence for survivin involvement in drug resistance. 2007

Wu, J., Apontes, P., Song, L., Liang, P., Yang, L. and Li, F.

Notes: To study how Hoechst33342 upregulates the expression and promoter activity of survivin, a novel member of the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) protein family, nested deletions of the survivin promoter driving a firefly luciferase reporter gene (pLuc-1430c ) were created using the Erase-a-Base® System. The vector was digested with SalI, the ends filled in using α-phosphorothioate dNTPs, digested a second time with BamHI and subjected to Exonuclease III digestion at 25°C. Aliquots of the 5’ end deletions were removed every 15–30 seconds, religated, transformed and analyzed by PCR and sequencing. Transient transfection experiments were carried out using HeLa cells seeded in 24-well plates and cotransfected 490ng of a pLuc-survivin construct and 10ng of pRL-TK Vector or in U937 cells using 2µg of survivin promoter constructs. After 24 hours, the HeLa cells were treated with Hoechst33342 and harvested 8–24 hours later. For U937 cells, the medium was changed with or without added drugs and the cells lysed after 36 hours. Reporter expression was assessed using the Dual-Luciferase® Reporter Assay System. (3697)

Phytopathology 97, 865-872. Multiplex real-time quantitative PCR to detect and quantify Verticillium dahliae colonization in potato lines that differ in response to Verticillium wilt. 2007

Atallah, Z.K., Bae, J., Jansky, S.H., Rouse, D.I., and Stevenson, W.R.

Notes: These authors developed a quantitative, real-time PCR method for the detection of Verticillium dahliae in potato cultivars. V. dahiae is the causative agent of Verticillium wilt, also known as potato early dying (PED). The standard detection method is a plating assay that takes 2 weeks to complete. The authors of this study performed qPCR assays using the V. dahliae beta tubulin-2 gene as a target. Initially, they amplified, subcloned and sequenced seven different genes in order to identify targets that were polymorphic among the genus Verticillium, but monoprphic in V. dahliae. After selection of beta-tubulin 2 as a suitable target, monoplex and duplex qPCR assays were performed using a Bio-Rad iCycler thermal cycler and 1ng DNA from various cultivars. For the duplex assays, the Plexor® qPCR System was used to amplify both beta-tubulin 2 and beta-actin genes simultaneously. One beta-tubulin primer was labeled with FAM, and one actin primer was labeled with Redmond Red phopsphoramidite. Amplifications were performed in 25µl reactions with 200nM each primer, 1ng DNA, and the Plexor® Master Mix. Cycling conditions were as follows: 2 minutes at 95°C; 40 cycles of 5s at 95°C, 35s at 61°C. Melt curve analysis was performed to confirm the specificity of the amplification products. The qPCR assays were shown to be faster and more sensitive than the standard plating technique, and were one order of magnitude more sensitive than other PCR-based assays. (3673)

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.

Mol. Cell. Endocrinol. 264, 50-60. Novel estrogen receptor beta transcript variants identified in human breast cancer cells affect cell growth and apoptosis of COS-1 cells. 2007

Treeck, O., Pfeiler ,G., Horn, F., Federhofer, B., Houlihan, H., Vollmer, A., and Ortmann, O.

Notes: This study identified two novel transcript variants of the estrogen receptor ERβ that were expressed in the ERα-negative breast cancer cell line MDA-MD-231. These variants were identified after amplification of ERβ transcripts from the breast cancer cell line by RT-PCR. The amplification products were then excised from gels and subcloned into the pTARGET™ Mammalian Expression Vector prior to sequencing. COS1 cells, which do not express the estrogen receptor, were then stably transfected with full-length ERβ or one of the splice variants and the effects on cell proliferation, apoptosis, and estrogen response were evaluated. In COS1 cells expressing either ERβ or the transcript variants cell proliferation decreased and basal apoptosis (caspase 3/7 activity) increased, compared to cells transfected with vector alone. Exposure to therapeutic doses of tamoxifen induced apoptosis in cells expressing the full-length ERβ but not in cells expressing either of the variant isoforms. (3618)

J. Biol. Chem. 282, 14194-14204. Regulation of the interleukin-7 receptor α-promoter by the Ets transcription factors PU.1 and GA-binding protein in developing B cells. 2007

Dekoter, R.P., Schweitzer, B.L., Kamath, M.B., Jones, D., Tagoh, H., Bonifer, C., Hildeman, D.A., and Huang, K.J.

Notes: The interleukin-7 receptor is composed of γ and α subunits, encoded by the genes il7rg and il7r, respectively. The α subunit is expressed in developing B cells and is downregulated upon maturation. These authors investigated the mechanisms of transcriptional regulation of the il7r gene using 5´ RACE, EMSA, RNA interference and chromatin immunoprecipitation analyses. Potential promoter regions identified by 5´ RACE analysis were cloned into the pGL3-Basic luciferase reporter vector for further study. The promoter constructs were transiently transfected into the 38B9 pro-B cell line along with the control pRL-TK Vector, which expresses Renilla luciferase, and the Dual-Luciferase® Reporter Assay System was used to assess luciferase activity from the various promoter constructs. The promoter construct having the highest activity was chosen, and site directed mutagenesis was used to identify specific regions within the promoter fragment that may be important for activity. Sequence analysis was then used to identify a conserved Ets transcription factor binding site within the putative il7r promoter region. To determine whether the ETS transcription factor GABP binds to this Ets region, the authors performed chromatin immunoprecipitation analysis with an anti-GABP antibody. Immunoprecipitated DNA was then PCR-amplified with primers specific for the Ets region or control primers. The Wizard® SV Gel and PCR Clean-Up System was used to purify the amplified fragments prior to semiquantitative PCR analysis. (3626)

Slepenkin, A., Enquist, P.A., Hägglund, U., de la Maza, L.M., Elofsson, M. and Peterson, E.M.

Notes: The authors screened members of a class of acylated hydrazones of salicylaldehydes (INPs) to characterize their ability to inhibit growth of Chlamydia by affecting the type III secretion (T3S) system, a potent virulence mechanism. Expression levels of various T3S genes and gene markers of early, middle and late developmental cycles were examined by RT-PCR in Chlamydia trachomatis-infected HeLa 229 cells in the presence and absence of INPs. HeLa229 RNA was isolated at 4, 8, 24 and 36 hours postinfection, treated with RQ1 RNase-Free DNase and amplified using the Access RT-PCR System in the presence of 0.5 units of RNasin RNase Inhibitor. Each set of experiments included a no-reverse transcriptase control reaction to control for DNA contamination and a positive control reaction using the Positive Control RNA with Carrier and control primers supplied with the kit.

J. Biol. Chem. 282, 19052–19061. SOX6 suppresses cyclin D1 promoter activity by interacting with beta-catenin and histone deacetylase 1, and its down-regulation induces pancreatic beta-cell proliferation. 2007

Iguchi, H., Urashima, Y., Inagaki, Y., Ikeda, Y., Okamura, M., Tanaka, T., Uchida, A., Yamamoto, T.T., Kodama, T. and Sakai, J.

Notes: Sex-determining Y-box (SOX) 6 is a transcription factor downregulated in obesity-related insulin-resistant animals. The authors examined the interaction between SOX 6 and β-catenin, a protein that modulates cyclin D1 promoter activity. To characterize the physical interaction, in vitro binding assays were performed using GST-fused SOX 6 and deletion mutants of β-catenin, which were expressed as 35S-labeled proteins in the TNT® T7 Quick Coupled Transcription/Translation System. The GST-fusion proteins were bound to MagneGST® particles and allowed to interact with the β-catenin mutants. Purified GST was used as a negative control to determine nonspecific protein binding. The authors were able to identify the protein domains necessary for SOX 6/β-catenin interaction. Similar binding assays were performed with GST-β-catenin and 35S-labeled T-cell factor in the presence or absence of SOX 6 to show that SOX 6 does not interfere with the binding of β-catenin to TCF.

Mol. Cell. Biol. 26, 8448–8460. Specific isoforms of translation initiation factor 4GI show differences in translational activity. 2007

Coldwell, M.J. and Morley, S.J.

Notes: The authors explored the role of five different eukaryotic initiation factor (eIF) 4GI protein isoforms, which are encoded by alternatively spliced mRNAs, by using short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) to silence the eIF4GI gene. Three eIF4GI siRNA target sequences were evaluated for their ability to reduce eIF4GI mRNA levels in HeLa cells. To quantify the extent of gene silencing, a control plasmid that encodes an eIF4GI/Renilla luciferase fusion mRNA was created using the psiCHECK™-2 Vector. Cotransfection of HeLa cells with the eIF4GI siRNAs and psiCHECK™-2 control plasmid resulted in degradation of the eIF4GI/Renilla luciferase mRNA, leading to reduced Renilla luciferase activity and lower light output. The psiCHECK™-2 Vector encodes the firefly luciferase gene, which allowed normalization of Renilla luciferase expression. Firefly and Renilla luciferase activities were measured using the Dual-Luciferase® Reporter Assay System. Quantitative PCR (qPCR) was used to quantify the silencing of endogenous eIF4GI mRNA splice variants. Prior to qPCR, total RNA was isolated from siRNA-expressing HeLa cells, then reverse transcribed using the ImProm-II™ Reverse Transcription System. qPCR was The pGEM®-T Easy Vector was used in the creation of plasmids encoding siRNA-resistant eIF4GI isoforms, which were transfected into siRNA-expressing HeLa cells to restore eIF4GI function.

Mol. Endocrinol. Mar. 13, Epub (ahead of print). The micro-RNA miR-206 targets the human estrogen receptor-α, and represses ERα mRNA and protein expression in breast cancer cells. 2007

Adams, B.D., Furneaux, H. and White, B.

Notes: This study investigated the mechanism of silencing of the estrogen receptor α mRNA in the human breast cancer cell line, MCF-7. The authors initially used software for miRNA target prediction to analyze the 3´ UTR of the human ERα gene for potential miR-206 target sites. Two potential targets, designated hERα1 and hERα2, were identified. ERα levels were repressed in a dose-dependent manner in MCF-7 cells transfected with a synthetic pre-miR-206 duplex, and transfection of an miR-206 expression construct into MCF-7 cells also resulted in specific inhibition of ERα expression, as measured by real-time PCR and Northern blot assays. A luciferase reporter assay was then used to determine whether miR-206 interacted directly with the hERα1 and hERα2 sites in the ERα 3´UTR. Luciferase reporter constructs containing either the hERα1 or hERα2 cloned 3´ of the firefly luciferase gene showed miR-206-medisted repression of luciferase expression in HeLa cells. Mutation of the hERα1 or hERα2 sites to disrupt hybridization with the 5´ region of miR-206 restored luciferase activity, as did co-transfection with an miRNA antagonist of miR-206. Transformation of the luciferase constructs into the breast cancer cell lines, MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231, both of which expressed high levels of miR-206 as measured by real-time PCR, resulted in repression of luciferase activity. Treatment with estrogen was then shown to reduce miR-206 levels in MCF-7 cells. Luciferase assays were used to confirm this result, and levels of luciferase activity from the reporter constructs were increased upon exposure to estrogen, indicating that ERα agonists were able to decrease miR-206 levels in MCF- cells.
