Cg.5XFAD females (MMRRC Stock No #34848-JAX) were bred to males from BXD strains. The resulting F1 progeny were monitored throughout their lifepan to evaluate the effect of genetic background on cognitive and pathological traits. Samples here come from various AD-BXD lines at either 6 or 14 months of age. An earlier dataset of similar design (plus Non-transgenic littermates) was deposited as GSE101144. Ntg littermates of mice sampled here will be deposited as a separate GEO series. Overall design: 88 AD samples. For final by-strain analysis, samples were averaged into strain/age/genotype/sex groups (For example, all D2 6mo 5XFAD males were averaged for final by-strain analysis)

Female C57BL/6J mice hemizygous for the 5XFAD transgene (MMRRC Stock No #34848-JAX) were bred to males from BXD strains, which do not carry the 5XFAD transgene. The resulting F1 progeny were monitored throughout their lifespan to evaluate the effect of genetic background on cognitive and pathological traits. All of the mice were fear conditioned and sacrificed within 30 minutes of testing. On the sample records, the characteristics: age field provides the age at which fear conditioning, sacrifice, and tissue collection occurred. Samples here come from various AD-BXD lines and their non-transgenic (Ntg) littermate counterparts at either 6 or 14 months of age. Overall design: 133 samples, 64 Ntg and 69 AD. For final by-strain analysis, samples were averaged into strain/age/genotype/sex groups (For example, all D2 6mo 5XFAD males were averaged for final by-strain analysis)

TVB-3166, an orally available, reversible, potent, and selective FASN inhibitors, was used to investigate FASN as a cancer therapeutic target. FASN inhibition with TVB-3166 induces apoptosis, inhibits anchorage-independent cell growth under lipid-rich conditions, and inhibits in vivo xenograft tumor growth.

Brain inflammation, a common feature in neurodegenerative diseases, is a complex series of events, which can be detrimental and even lead to neuronal death. Nonetheless, several studies suggest that inflammatory signals are also positively influencing neural cell proliferation, survival, migration and differentiation. Recently, correlative studies suggested that astrocytes are able to dedifferentiate upon injury, and may thereby re-acquire neural stem cells (NSC) potential. However, the mechanism underlying this dedifferentiation process upon injury remains unclear. In this study, we find that during the early response of reactive gliosis, inflammation induces a conversion of mature astrocytes into neural progenitors. A TNF treatment induces the decrease of specific astrocyte markers, such as GFAP or genes related to glycogen metabolism, while a subset of these cells re-express immaturity markers, such as CD44, Musashi-1 and Oct4. Thus, TNF treatment results in the appearance of cells that exhibit a neural progenitor phenotype and are able to proliferate and differentiate into neurons and/or astrocytes.

The encapsulated yeast Cryptococcus neoformans can cause a fatal meningoencephalitis in immunocompromised patients. C. neoformans infection is acquired through the respiratory tract, but the cellular and molecular mechanisms of the pulmonary innate immune response are still not well defined. To investigate the response of CCR2+ inflammatory monocytes to C. neoformans, we compared the transcriptomes of CCR2+ inflammatory monocytes from the lungs of naïve versus infected mice. Overall design: Sorted pulmonary CCR2+ inflammatory monocytes were pooled from 6-7 CCR2-GFP reporter mice per group, including naïve mice and mice challenged with intratracheal Cryptococcus neoformans on days 5 and 10 post-infection.
Inflammatory monocytes are detrimental to the host immune response during acute infection with Cryptococcus neoformans.

To identify the genes and pathways regulated by FOXF2, we investigated potential FOXF2 gene targets by microarray analyses of primary prostate stromal cells (PrSC) in which FOXF2 was knocked down by siRNA. 190 differentially expressed genes were selected, of which 104 genes were more highly expressed in PrSC cells treated with FOXF2 siRNA and 86 were more highly expressed in PRSC cells treated with negative control siRNA.
