Preserve Cultured Cell Cytonemes through a Modified Electron Microscopy Fixation

[Abstract]  Immunocytochemistry of cultured cells is a common and effective technique for determining compositions and localizations of proteins within cellular structures. However, traditional cultured cell fixation and staining protocols are not effective in preserving cultured cell cytonemes, long specialized filopodia that are dedicated to morphogen transport. As a result, limited mechanistic interrogation has been performed to assess their regulation. We developed a fixation protocol for cultured cells that preserves cytonemes, which allows for immunofluorescent analysis of endogenous and over-expressed proteins localizing to the delicate cellular structures. [摘要]  培养细胞的免疫细胞化学是用于确定细胞结构内蛋白质的组成和定位的常用且有效的技术。 然而,传统的培养细胞固定和染色方案不能有效地保存培养的细胞色素,长期专门用于形态发生转运的丝状伪足。 结果,进行了有限的机械审讯以评估其监管。 我们开发了一种用于培养细胞的固定方案,该方案保留了细胞质,允许对内源性和过表达的蛋白质进行免疫荧光分析,这些蛋白质定位于脆弱的细胞结构。

【背景】Cytonemes被分类为薄的(~200nm直径)基于肌动蛋白的丝状伪足,长度超过2μm,可以转运形态发生素(Ramírez-Weber和Kornberg,1999)。这些信号结构首先在发育中的 Drosophila 翼成像盘中进行了详细分类和描述,随后在小鼠,小鸡和斑马鱼模型生物中进行了观察(Ramírez-Weber和Kornberg,1999; Sanders et al。,2013; Stanganello et al。,2015)。在大多数情况下,只有对过表达的荧光标记蛋白进行实时成像才能进行细胞色素检测。由于传统的固定方案未能保存这些脆弱的细丝,因此对培养细胞的细胞色素的检查受到限制。这些并发症一直是决定在发育和组织稳态期间驱动细胞色素形成和功能的细胞机制以及确定这些过程是否在疾病中被破坏的限制因素。

为了克服这些限制,我们开发了一种基于修饰电子显微镜固定剂(MEM-fix)的方案,该方案可以保留培养细胞的细胞质。 ...

[Abstract]  MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in plant growth, development, and response to infection by microbes. Double-stranded RNA binding protein 1 (DRB1) facilitates the processing of primary miRNA transcripts into mature miRNAs. Recently, we found that NS3 protein encoded by rice stripe virus (RSV) associates with DRB1 and promotes miRNA biogenesis during RSV infection (Zheng et al., 2017). RNA co-immunoprecipitation (RIP) method was applied to identity association patterns among DRB1, NS3, and miRNA transcript. [摘要]  微小RNA(miRNA)在植物生长,发育和微生物感染反应中发挥重要作用。 双链RNA结合蛋白1(DRB1)有助于将初级miRNA转录物加工成成熟的miRNA。 最近,我们发现水稻条纹病毒(RSV)编码的NS3蛋白与DRB1相关并促进RSV感染期间的miRNA生物合成(Zheng等人,2017)。 RNA共免疫沉淀(RIP)方法被用于鉴定DRB1,NS3和miRNA转录物之间的关联模式。

【背景】在双链RNA(dsRNA)结合蛋白HYPONASTIC LEAVES1(DRB1 / HYL1)的帮助下,通过RNA酶III酶DICER-LIKE1(DCL1)从其初级转录物(pri-miRNA) 锌指蛋白SERRATE(SE)。 水稻条纹病毒(RSV)感染广泛地干扰miRNA积累。 我们发现RSV编码的非结构蛋白3(NS3)通过与水稻中的DRB1相互作用下调pri-miRNAs来促进miRNA积累(Zheng等人,2017)。 为了揭示NS3如何增强pri-miRNA的加工,我们使用免疫共沉淀(Co-IP)来说明NS3,DRB1和pri-miRNA体内的关系。 该协议有助于了解两种蛋白质和一种RNA转录本之间的关联模式。

Adapting the Smart-seq2 Protocol for Robust Single Worm RNA-seq

[Abstract]  Most nematodes are small worms that lack enough RNA for regular RNA-seq protocols without pooling hundred to thousand of individuals. We have adapted the Smart-seq2 protocol in order to sequence the transcriptome of an individual worm. While developed for individual Steinernema carpocapsae and Caenorhabditis elegans larvae as well as embryos, the protocol should be adaptable for other nematode species and small invertebrates. In addition, we describe how to analyze the RNA-seq results using the Galaxy online environment. We expect that this method will be useful for the studying gene expression variances of individual nematodes in wild type and mutant backgrounds. [摘要]  大多数线虫是小蠕虫,缺乏足够的RNA用于常规的RNA-seq协议,而没有汇集成千上万的个体。 我们已经调整了Smart-seq2协议来排序单个蠕虫的转录组。 虽然针对Steinernema carpocapsae和Caenorhabditis elegans幼虫以及胚胎开发,但该方案应该适用于其他线虫物种和小无脊椎动物。 另外,我们介绍如何使用Galaxy在线环境分析RNA-seq结果。 我们预计这种方法将有助于研究野生型和突变体背景个体线虫的基因表达差异。

【背景】低输入RNA-seq方案和扩增试剂盒,例如Smart-seq(Takara Bio,USA,Inc)和SuperAmp(Miltenyl Biotec,Inc),已经越来越多地开发和商业化,作为对低输入RNA-基于小组织,单一微生物和单细胞的seq研究。这些研究经常探索并解决特定群体(例如细胞群体,复杂组织或微生物群体)的个体中的异源基因表达。针对微生物(如线虫)的低输入RNA-seq方案的改进和适应将通过允许在单一线虫水平上分析基因表达异质性而极大地有益于线虫领域。在这里,我们已经调整了单细胞RNA-seq方案Smart-seq2(Picelli等人,2013和2014; Trombetta等人,2014),对于单线虫RNA测序。我们成功地在昆虫寄生线虫Steinernema ...
