Viruses 10(12), pii: E666. A novel highly divergent strain of cell fusing agent virus (CFAV) in mosquitoes from the Brazilian amazon region.  2018

Fernandes L.N, Coletti T.M., et al.

Notes: A novel cell fusing agent virus (CFAV) strain was identified in mosquito populations in northern Brazil, shedding light on possible surveillance methods for other flaviviruses such as Zika virus. ProNex® size-selective beads were used alongside Promega AMV Reverse Transcriptase and DNA Polymerase I Large Fragment in the next generation sequencing workflow. (5217)

mBio. 3(5), e00266–12. A multicenter blinded analysis indicates no association between chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis and either xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus or polytropic murine leukemia virus. 2012

Alter, H.J., Mikovits, J.A., Switzer, W.M., Ruscetti, F.W., Lo, S.C., Klimas, N., Komaroff, A.L., Montoya, J.G., Bateman, L., Levine, S., Peterson, D., Levin, B., Hanson, M.R., Genfi, A., Bhat, M., Zheng, H., Wang, R., Li, B., Hung, G.C., Lee, L.L., Sameroff, S., Heneine, W., Coffin, J., Hornig, M. and Lipkin, W.I.

Notes: In this report, the original investigators who found XMRV and pMLV (polytropic murine leukemia virus) in blood of subjects with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) report that this association is not confirmed in a blinded analysis of samples from rigorously characterized subjects.

The CDC performed nucleic acid testing assays. Plasma was centrifuged and RNA isolated from the pellet. Quantitative real-time RT-PCR assays (qRT-PCR) for generic pMLV/XMRV pro (protease) and gag detection were performed on RNA extracts, using the AccessQuick™ RT-PCR System and an AgPath one-step RT-PCR kit.

ArrayScript RT and AmpliTaq Gold DNA polymerase were used for cDNA synthesis and amplification in the pro and gag qRT-PCR assays, respectively. A third PCR was done using the primers XPOLOF and XPOLOR, followed by a nested PCR with the primers XPOLIF and XPOLIR for the generic detection of MLV/XMRV 216-bp pol sequences. For this reaction, cDNA synthesis and amplification of RNA was done using Promega AMV Reverse Transcriptase and a RobustI RT-PCR kit. Each PCR experiment included 20 water-only reactions to control for contamination. (4300)

Nucl. Acids Res. 38, e167. In situ reverse transcription: the magic of strength and anonymity. 2010

Ligasová, A., and Koberna, K.

Notes: This paper describes a method for detection of polyA RNA in permeablized cells and cell sections. The method is based on incorporation of 5-bromo-2´-deoxyuridine (BrdUTP) into cDNA by AMV reverse transcriptase. The BrdUTP was easily detectable in DNA-RNA duplexes, and undetectable in DNA-DNA duplexes, making it possible to use the method to detect RNA in situ. RNasin® Ribonuclease Inhibitor was used in the reverse transcriptase reaction mix. (4226)

Am. J. Pathol. 171, 1153-1167. Dissecting the impact of chemotherapy on the human hair follicle: a pragmatic in vitro assay for studying the pathogenesis and potential management of hair follicle dystrophy. 2007

Bodó, E., Tobin, D.J., Kamenisch, Y., Bíró, T., Berneburg, M., Funk, W. and Paus, R.

Notes: To study how chemotherapy affects hair follicles (HF), the researchers microdissected and cultured human anagen VI scalp follicles and treated the cells with 4-Hydroperoxycyclophosphamide (4-HC) at similar concentrations to those received during therapy. After incubation for 24 hours with 30µmol/L of 4-HC, the HFs were homogenized and genomic DNA was purified using the Wizard® SV Genomic DNA Purification System. To determine if the treatment induced the mitochondrial common DNA deletion, the isolated DNA was subjected to real-time PCR. Further examination of gene expression was performed by isolating total RNA from two HF samples, reverse transcribing 3µg of the RNA using 15U of AMV Reverse Transcriptase and 0.025 µg/µl random primers, and amplifying seven human genes in a TaqMan® Assay.

J. Biol. Chem. 277, 17349-17358. Structural Determinants of BRCA1 Translational Regulation 2002

Sobczak, K. and Krzyzosiak, W.J.

Notes: The authors investigated expression of BRCA1 from alternative transcripts possessing different 5′ UTRs. RT-PCR using Promega's AMV reverse transcriptase was performed to generate cDNAs from total RNA isolated from human tissue. Promega's Taq DNA Polymerase was used for the PCR reaction. The authors also prepared two mRNAs that contained one or the other of the 2 alternative 5′ UTRs (ex1a or ex1b) fused with the luciferase coding region. To generate the corresponding DNA for these constructs, the luciferase coding region was amplified from Promega's pGEM® Vector and ligated to PCR-amplified ex1a or exlb. These ligation products served as the template amplifying two cDNA constructs (exla-luc or ex1b-luc). Ten additional cDNAs were made containing a variety of changes to the 5′UTR region of BRCA1. In vitro translation experiments were performed to determine how the composition of the 5′UTR affected protein expression levels (using Promega's RNasin to protect transcribed mRNA; T7 polymerase buffer; and rabbit reticulocyte and wheat germ extracts for translation). The authors conclude that secondary structures associated with elements in the longer 5′UTR reduced translation rates and could be responsible for the reduced expression of BRCA1 often associated with spontaneous ovarian and breast cancers.
