Methods 67, 36–44. Construction of Specific Parallel Amplification of RNA Ends (SPARE) libraries for the systematic identification of plant microRNA processing intermediates 2014

Schapire, A.L., Bologna, N.G., Moro, B., Zhai, J., Meyers, B.C. and Palatnik, J.F.

Notes: The authors of this study present a method for genome-wide analysis of miRNA processing intermediates in plants. The method presented uses reverse transcription performed with a mix of primers designed against known miRNA precursors. The molecules are next amplified to generate a library for deep sequencing. Total RNA was isolated and purified from plant tissue and then treated with RQ1 RNase-Free DNase to remove contaminating DNA. Ribosomal RNA was selectively removed before adapter ligation and reverse transcription. cDNA libraries were prepared; PCR products from the libraries were separated on an agarose gel and purified using Wizard® SV Gel and PCR Clean-Up System prior to sequencing.

J. Biomol. Scr. 15, 418–26. Epitope mapping of antibodies using a cell array-based polypeptide library. 2010

Maier, R.H., Maier, C.J., Rid, R., Hintner, H., Bauer, J.W. and Onder, K.

Notes: The authors developed a high-density protein array using a recombinant peptide library to map the epitope recognized by a commercially available anti-vitamin D receptor (VDR) monoclonal antibody. By screening 2304 overlapping VDR peptides, they were able to identify the 37-amino-acid epitope. The library was created by amplifying the 1.2kb VDR coding region, cleaning the PCR product with the Wizard® SV Gel and PCR Clean-Up System, sonicating the PCR product, then cloning the VDR fragments into a bacterial expression vector that confers a glutathione-S-transferase (GST) tag. The epitope was verified by showing that the 37-amino-acid sequence was recognized in Western blot analysis and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA); the full-length VDR, also expressed as GST fusion protein, was used as a positive control. These GST fusion proteins were purified using the MagneGST™ Protein Purification System. (4154)

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.

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)

Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 72, 6070-6078. An oxidoreductase is involved in cercosporin degradation by the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris pv. zinniae. 2006

Taylor, T.V., Mitchell, T.K. and Daub, M.E.

Notes: Fungi of the genus Cercospora are plant pathogens that cause leaf spot and blight diseases, and produce the polyketide toxin cercosporin. The bacterium Xanthomonas campestris is able to rapidly degrade cercosporin. In this study, X. campestris mutants unable to degrade cercosporin were created by chemical mutagenesis. Complementation studies with a plasmid-based library of X. campestris DNA showed that the ability to degrade cercosporin was restored upon transformation with plasmids containing an oxidoreductase gene and a putative transcriptional regulator. These genes were then amplified from the mutant strains by high-fidelity PCR. The PCR products were separated by agarose gel electrophoresis, purified using the Wizard® SV Gel and PCR Clean-Up System, and subcloned into the pGEM®-T Easy Vector. The mutant genes were then sequenced to identify the nature of the mutations. (3531)
