Sci. Rep. 8, 4926. Identification of potential regulatory mutations using multi-omics analysis and haplotyping of lung adenocarcinoma cell lines. 2018

Sereewattanawoot, S., Suzuki, A., Seki, M., Sakamoto, Y., Kohno, T., Sugano, S., Tsuchihara, K., Suzuki, Y.

Notes: The authors identified single nucleotide mutations in gene regulatory regions that may result in transcriptional changes in the context of lung adenocarcinoma. Further, 31 of these regulatory region mutations were found in clinical lung adenocarcinoma isolates and were associated with patient outcomes. The Nano-Glo® Dual-Luciferase® Reporter Assay was used to compare expression with wild-type or mutant regulatory regions. Specifically, the relative activity of the mutant NFATC1 regulatory region was shown to be 3-fold higher compared to wild-type. (5092)

Oncotarget 8(41), 70828-70840. Histone deacetylase inhibitor thailandepsin-A activates Notch signaling and suppresses neuroendocrine cancer cell growth in vivo. 2017

Jang, S. et al.

Notes: Activation of Notch isoforms via histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACi) has been shown to suppress neuroendocrine (NE) cancers. Here, a novel HDACi called thailandepsin A (TDP-A) was characterized and shown to induce cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. The NanoBRET Target Engagement system was used to determine TDP-A binding to HDAC1. TT cells expressing an HDAC1-NanoLuc fusion were treated with TDP-A and competed HDAC tracer compound to determine in vivo binding affinity.  (5131)

Notes: Putative enhancer elements were cloned into the pGL4.23 [luc2/minP] and transfected into human iCMs (Cellular Dynamics) along with a Renilla luciferase control. The iCMs were plated at 2 × 103 per well of a 96-well plate and cultured until all cells were electrically connected and beat simultaneously (~7 days post plating). Beating cells were transfected with the two reporters using the ViaFect™ Transfection Reagent at a 2:1 Viafect:DNA ratio (further detail provided in the paper). The reporter activities were measured 24 hours post-transfection with the Dual-Luciferase® Reporter Assay System. Transfections using a GFP-expressing vector provided a visual estimation of the transfection efficiency and 65-70% of the iCMs were GFP-positive 24 hrs post-transfection. (4671)

Notes: In order to investigate the interaction of the Cullin-RING E3 ubiquitin ligase with Elongin A due to toxic damage to DNA, the authors chose a FRET assay consisting of mCherry-labeled Cullin-RING3 and HaloTag-labeled Elongin A (clone obtained from Promega as pFN21-TCEB3 then subcloned into another expression vector). Interaction of the two proteins was examined in UV irradiated HeLa and U2OS cells. As a control, a HaloTag Protein expression vector alone was used. Intracellular HaloTag-labeled protein visualization was accomplished with the HaloTag® R110Direct™ Ligand. Both cell lines were transfected at 50-60% confluency with 700ng of plasmid in glass bottom 35mm dishes. FuGENE® HD Reagent was used for HeLa cells and ViaFect™ Reagent was used for U2OS cells.

HeLa cells were transfected with a GFP-NUP107 fusion vector using ViaFect™ Transfection Reagent (no details provided) and immunoprecipitated then blotted to identify NUP133 in the pull down. Subcellular localization of GFP-NUP107 was examined as well. RT-PCR analysis of nup107 splicing variants in zebrafish relied on M-MLV Reverse Transcriptase for cDNA synthesis. (4675)
