Analysis of gene-expression profiles with microarrays can be very useful to dissect specific responses and to characterize with a global view, new elements for improving the diagnosis, treatment and understanding of allergic diseases. We have used this approach for studying the olive pollen response, taking advantage our previous results of T-cell epitope mapping on Ole e 1 molecule (the major allergen from olive pollen) in order to analyze the stimuli influence on the gene-expression of olive pollen allergic patients. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from 6 healthy controls and 6 allergic subjects were stimulated 24 hours with olive pollen stimuli: Ole e 1 molecule and two Ole e 1 peptides previously defined as P2+3 (aa10-31), mainly recognized by non-allergic subjects (possible immunoregulatory epitope) and P10+12+13 (aa90-130), immunodominant T-cell epitope. RNA extracted from basal and stimulated PBMCs was analyzed by HuGeU133 plus 2.0 GeneChip, Affymetrix (38.500genes). After assessment of data quality by standard quality checks and principal components analysis (PCA), differential gene-expression by experimental conditions was performed by multiple testing, using microarrays specific software. Differences in functional analysis were performed by KEGG, for pathways and Gene-Ontology for biological process. The results of gene-expression by PCA showed differential clusters that correlated with the experimental conditions from samples of allergic patients. Analysis of differential gene-expression by multiple testing, and functional analysis by KEGG and Gene-Ontology revealed differential genes and pathways among the 4 experimental conditions.

Purpose: Probe the transcriptome-wide changes in the expression pattern between WT and Sertoli-specific Upf2 KO testes Methods: Total RNA were extracted from WT and Sertoli-specific Upf2 KO testes in triplicates and subject to deep-sequencing in Ion Torrent seq platform. Results: Using an optimized data analysis workflow, we mapped about 30 million sequence reads per sample to the mouse genome (build mm9) and identified 16,014 transcripts in the retinas of WT and Nrl-/- mice with BWA workflow and 34,115 transcripts with TopHat workflow. RNA-seq data confirmed stable expression of 25 known housekeeping genes, and 12 of these were validated with qRT–PCR. RNA-seq data had a linear relationship with qRT–PCR for more than four orders of magnitude and a goodness of fit (R2) of 0.8798. Approximately 10% of the transcripts showed differential expression between the WT and Nrl-/- retina, with a fold change =1.5 and p value <0.05. Altered expression of 25 genes was confirmed with qRT–PCR, demonstrating the high degree of sensitivity of the RNA-seq method. Hierarchical clustering of differentially expressed genes uncovered several as yet uncharacterized genes that may contribute to retinal function. Data analysis with BWA and TopHat workflows revealed a significant overlap yet provided complementary insights in transcriptome profiling. Conclusions: Our study represents the first detailed analysis of Upf2-mediated NMD pathway in Sertoli cell development Overall design: Testis mRNA profiling was generated from postnatal day 4 WT and Amh-cKO (Sertoli specific Upf2 KO) testes, in triplicates.
UPF2, a nonsense-mediated mRNA decay factor, is required for prepubertal Sertoli cell development and male fertility by ensuring fidelity of the transcriptome.

There are 3 cell types in a glomerulus: podocytes, mesangial cells and endothelial cells. These cell types play distinct roles in the structure and functions of glomeruli. In order to profile the gene expression of single glomerular cells, we isolated mouse glomeruli by Dynabead/magnetic concentration method and digested them with enzymes to dissociate them into single cells. We loaded the single cell suspension to a Fluidigm C1 Single-Cell Auto Prep System for single cell cDNA preparation. We performed qPCR analyses of marker genes of podocytes (Npsh2, Synaptopodin, WT1), mesangial cells (Gata3, IGFbp5) and endothelial cells (CD31, Tie2) to determine the identity of each cDNA sample. To identify podocyte-specific genes, we mixed 15 mesangial cell cDNA samples and 15 endothelial cell cDNA samples and further divided into 3 aliquots as replicates for sequencing using Illumina HiSeq 2000 system. The resulting data are used to compare with that of podocytes in order to identify podocyte-specific genes. Overall design: A C57BL/6 male mouse was sacrificed for isolation of glomeruli. Glomeruli were dissociated into single cells, which were loaded to a Fluidigm C1 Single-Cell Auto Prep System for single cell cDNA preparation. qPCR analyses of marker genes of podocytes (Npsh2, Synaptopodin, WT1), mesangial cells (Gata3, IGFbp5) and endothelial cells (CD31, Tie2) were conducted to determine sample identities. Fifteen mesangial cells and 15 endothelial cells'' cDNA samples were mixed and divided into 3 aliquots as replicates for sequencing.

Background: In multiple sclerosis (MS), immune up-regulation is coupled to subnormal immune response to interferon-β (IFN-β) and low serum IFN-β levels. The relationship between the defect in IFN signalling and acute and long-term effects of IFN-β on gene expression in MS is inadequately understood. Methods: We profiled IFN-β-induced transcriptome shifts, using high-resolution microarrays on 227 mononuclear cell samples from IFN-β-treated MS Complete Responders (CR) stable for five years, and stable and active Partial Responders (PR), stable and active untreated MS, and healthy controls. Findings: IFN-β injection induced short-term changes in 1,200 genes compared to baseline expression after 4-day IFN washout. Pre-injection after washout, and in response to IFN-β injections, PR more frequently had abnormal gene expression than CR. Surprisingly, short-term IFN-β induced little shift in Th1/Th17/Th2 gene expression, but up-regulated immune-inhibitory genes (ILT, IDO1, PD-L1). Expression of 8,800 genes was dysregulated n therapy-naïve compared to IFN-β-treated patients. These long-term changes in protein-coding and long non-coding RNAs affect immunity, synaptic transmission, and CNS cell survival, and correct the disordered therapy-naïve transcriptome to near-normal. In keeping with its impact on clinical course and brain repair in MS, long-term IFN-β treatment reversed the overexpression of proinflammatory and MMP genes, while enhancing genes involved in the oligodendroglia-protective integrated stress response, neuroprotection, and immunoregulation. In the rectified long-term signature, 277 transcripts differed between stable PR and CR patients.
