Genetic transformation of plants has become a widely used technology that serves multiple purposes in plant biology research. However, considerable variation of transgene expression is often observed within populations of transgenic plants transformed with the same transgene construct. This inter-transformant variation of transgene expression hampers proper evaluation of transgenes and might be most undesirable when high-throughput transgene screening is intended. The general plant transformation strategy today is to generate a sufficiently high number of transgenic plants to find some transformants with the desired level of expression. To reduce cost, labor and interpretational flaws, multiple efforts are being directed toward achieving stable expression of transgenes with an expected level of expression. Various factors are thought to contribute to transgene expression variation including the transgene copy number, RNA silencing, transgene insertion site and the employment of certain ...
Figure 5. Analysis of the second round RMCE event. PCR assays specific to the genomic borders and internal regions of the second RMCE DNA, QC288A436A438A, were done on RMCE T0 plant B531-1 using various primer combinations (Fig. 2). The hemizygous (RMCE/excision) B531-1 ancestors hemizygous B53, homozygous B5 and B, and wild-type DNA (wt) were included as controls. A, The expected 886-bp 5′ border of both QC288A in B and QC288A436A in B53 (left) and the 561-bp 3′ border of QC288A in B (center) were amplified. The full-length 4,742-bp QC288A of B, 6,331-bp QC288A329A of B5, and 986-bp QC288ME (excision) of B53 and B531 were amplified (right). The expected full-length 9,108-bp QC288A436A of B53 and 21,925-bp QC288A436A438A of B531-1 were too large to be amplified. B, The expected 967-bp 5′ border of both QC288A329A in B5 and QC288A436A438A in B531 (left) and the 1,180-bp 3′ border of QC288A329A in B5 (center) were amplified. The same B5 band was also amplified from B53 that contained ...

Almost all transfection protocols for mammalian cells use a drug resistance gene for the selection of transfected cells. However, it always requires the characterization of each isolated clone regarding transgene expression, which is time-consuming and labor-intensive. In the current study, we developed a novel method to selectively isolate clones with high transgene expression without drug selection. Porcine embryonic fibroblasts were transfected with pCEIEnd, an expression vector that simultaneously expresses enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) and endo-b-galactosidase C(EndoGalC; an enzyme capable of digesting cell surface a-Gal epitope) upon transfection. After transfection, the surviving cells were briefly treated with IB4SAP (a-Gal epitope-specific BS-I-B4 lectin conjugated with a toxin saporin). The treated cells were then allowed to grow in normal medium, during which only cells strongly expressing EndoGalC and EGFP would survive because of the absence of a-Gal epitopes on their cell
The unstable equilibrium associated with underdominance provides a reversibly means by which transgenes can be pushed through a population. This equilibrium is quickly shifted when one of the allele frequencies surpasses a critical threshold value (usually by transgene release). When the frequency of the transgene allele is above the threshold compared to the wild type allele then the mutant allele will "push" through the population and become fixed. The converse is true for wild type alleles, meaning that underdominant systems are bi-directional. An attractive feature of underdominance systems as a tool for introducing transgenes into natural populations is their intrinsic reversibility. Allelic frequencies can be shifted in favor of the transgene for a given time and then returned to wild type should the necessity arise.. Similar to any other gene drive mechanisms, allele frequency, fitness cost, and system stability (keep effector genes linked to the driving alleles) are great concerns with ...
Transgene integration into the same chromosome location can produce alleles that express at a predictable level, or alleles that are differentially silenced
A couple of additional observations. First, it was not poly lysine per se that was causing reduced protein levels because poly AAG (also lysine) did not have the same effects. Second, the strength of the promoter was not important; the poly A track-effect was independent of the strength of the promoter. Finally, the homopolymeric nature of these tracks of As can be unstable due to the hypermutability of short tandem repeats.. While creating hypomorphic alleles was the authors primary intent, what they describe is of significance to those working with transgenes. Whereas most who are seeking to express transgenes in insects have been largely limited to the strength of the promoters to manage levels of transgenic proteins, now they can consider modulating transgene using polyA tracks. This could be a very valuable tool in the toolbox of those genetically modifying insects.. Rapid generation of hypomorphic mutations. Laura L. Arthur, Joyce J. Chung, […], Sergej Djuranovic.

General Guidelines Procedure There is a detailed description of the rationale and strategy for making integrants written by Michael Koelle, and there is a thorough discussion of worm transformation in Mello and Fire (1995) Methods in Cell Biology 48, Chapter 19 (pp.451-482). Aside from the oligonucleotide protocol (see below), obtaining an integrant starts with a transmitting line which is treated with a DNA-damaging agent to induce integration. To make the screen efficient and recover multiple independent lines, many researchers use the following procedure.. Briefly, a transmitting line with a moderate precentage of transmission, around 20%, is convenient to use. Approximately 50 late L4 or young adult worms are treated. These animals are separated into groups to allow later assurance of independent lines. To screen for integrants, a two-step approach is used. First, approximately 250 F1 animals are singled out. The progeny are screened for broods which demonstrate >75% transgenic progeny. ...

We would like to thank Dr. Sylvain Lesne for his interest in our work and for his comments. We would like to clarify some of the points he raised concerning our report, since we disagree with some of his statements.. Regarding Aβ detection, we used the 6E10 antibody to monitor the level of APP transgene expression at the age we performed our analysis of spine density in vivo (i.e., three months postnatal), but our intention was not to characterize the presence of Aβ1-42 oligomers at this age in this mouse strain. They have been extensively characterized previously by others (see below). The 6E10 antibody is known to recognize human APP, CTF-β, and Aβ. We acknowledge that the band running below 15 kDa should be considered as a mixture of CTF/Aβ since tissues were homogenized in RIPA buffer. Regarding the APP signal at ~100 kDa, we could clearly detect a faint signal in the wild-type mice (after overexposure of the membrane), suggesting that the antibody can cross-react with mouse APP. This ...
Gene silencing is a naturally occurring process by which genes can become shut off within a plant. When transgenes are introduced into plants they can also show gene silencing. Genes which share sequence similarity are said to be homologous. When transgenes showing homology to normal cellular genes are introduced they can show a special form of silencing called homology-dependent gene silencing and this typically results in the silencing of one or both genes ...
Novel gene-based therapies for disease will depend in many cases on long-term persistent transgene expression. To develop gene therapy strategies for Friedreichs ataxia (FRDA), we have examined the persistence of transgene expression in the brain in vivo provided by the entire 135 kb FXN genomic DNA locus delivered as an infectious bacterial artificial chromosome (iBAC) herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1)-based vector injected in the adult mouse cerebellum. We constructed genomic DNA-reporter fusion vectors carrying a complete 135 kb FXN genomic locus with an insertion of the Escherichia coli lacZ gene at the ATG start codon (iBAC-FXN-lacZ). SHSY5Y human neuroblastoma cells transduced by iBAC-FXN-lacZ showed high efficiency of vector delivery and LacZ expression. Direct intracranial injection of iBAC-FXN-lacZ into the adult mouse cerebellum resulted in a large number of easily detectable transduced cells, with LacZ expression driven by the FXN genomic locus, which persisted for at least 75 days.

The objective of the present work with PrmCre transgenes was to determine the potential of the Prm1 promoter and, by inference, other germ-line-specific promoters, for the implementation of an efficient approach in which site-specific recombinases are used to generate an array of sophisticated mutations in mice. The results show that it is possible to create recombinase transgenes that are expressed at high levels in the male germ line but not to a functionally significant extent in either ES cells or embryonic or adult somatic tissues. Homologous recombinants with a loxP-flanked selectable marker can be isolated in ES cells that contain PrmCre transgenes, and transgenic mice bearing PrmCre transgenes and a target allele transmit the Cre-recombined target to their progeny at high frequencies. Although the data reported here are restricted to a single target allele, we have also found that a loxP-flanked neo cassette in the glutamate receptor R6 subunit locus is efficiently recombined by PrmCre ...
Transgenic trees currently are being produced by Agrobacterium-mediated transformation and biolistics. Since trees are particularly suited for long-term evaluations of the impact of the technology, Prunus subhirtella autumnorosa (PAR) was chosen as model fruit tree species and transformed with a reporter gene (uidA) under the control of the 35S promoter. Using Southern and GUS fluorometric techniques, we compared transgene copy numbers and observed stability of transgene expression levels in 34 different transgenic plants, grown under in vitro, greenhouse and screenhouse conditions, over a period of 9 years. An influence of grafting on gene expression was not observed. No silenced transgenic plant was detected. Overall, these results suggest that transgene expression in perennial species, such as fruit trees, remains stable in time and space, over extended periods and in different organs, confirming the value of PAR as model species to study season-dependent regulation in mature stonefruit ...
The effect of CpG islands on transgene expression was first tested in cultured cells. In transient transfection it was demonstrated that CpG islands do not influence the expression of a transgene when not integrated into the genome. Even when integrated into the genome of cultured cells, CpG islands are not able to confer position-independent, copy number-dependent transgene expression, as confirmed by the analysis of individual cell lines. However, the results from bulk analysis of primary clones suggest that CpG islands improve the level of expression in cultured cells, and increase the proportion of highly expressing clones. Transgenic mice were used to study the effect of CpG islands on the level and pattern of transgene expression in vivo. Unexpectedly, from the nine transgenic lines generated, transgene expression was detected in only one line. In the rest of the lines transgene expression was silenced, and in these cases the transgene was densely methylated. In half of the silenced lines ...
A safe and effective gene therapeutic strategy for cancer depends greatly on 2 key determinants: tumor specificity and efficient transgene expression. With the goal of developing a cancer-specific vector with robust activity, we selected the hTERT promoter. Telomerase activation is observed in approximately 90% of human cancers, irrespective of tumor type, whereas most normal tissues contain inactivated telomerase (26), and its promoter has been used in many types of cancer, including ovarian and breast (14, 16). Our data showed that the minimal promoter fragment of hTERT is active in both ADPC and CRPC cells but has much lower activity than CMV promoter. To overcome the lack of strong activities in tissue-specific promoters, we used VISA expression system that has been successfully applied to other cancer types (11, 13-16).. In most cases of recurrent or metastatic prostate cancer through ADPC to CRPC progression, the AR gene is amplified and/or overexpressed and binds to androgen (or androgen ...
The interpretation of genome sequences requires reliable and standardized methods to assess protein function at high throughput. Here we describe a fast and reliable pipeline to study protein function in mammalian cells based on protein tagging in bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs). The large size of the BAC transgenes ensures the presence of most, if not all, regulatory elements and results in expression that closely matches that of the endogenous gene. We show that BAC transgenes can be rapidly and reliably generated using 96-well-format recombineering. After stable transfection of these transgenes into human tissue culture cells or mouse embryonic stem cells, the localization, protein-protein and/or protein-DNA interactions of the tagged protein are studied using generic, tag-based assays. The same high-throughput approach will be generally applicable to other model systems.
To analyze gene function in mammalian cells tetracycline inducible expression of a gene-of-interest at a specific genomic location (Flp-In T-REx™) is most attractive. However, leakiness of basal transgene expression and artificially high expression level upon tetracycline addition may be disadvantageous. To solve these problems, we developed two different approaches to improve our pancreatic β-cell line INS-1 Flp-In T-REx™ expressing the tissue restricted transcription factor HNF4α under control of tetracycline. On the one hand we replaced the strong full length CMV promoter (CMV-Wt) with a weaker 5-deleted CMV promoter fragment of 138 nucleotides in length (CMV-138). On the other hand we extended our INS-1 Flp-In T-REx™ cell lines with a Shield-1 dependent conditional control system of protein stability. Therefore, we fused HNF4α to the destabilization domain (DD) deduced from human FKBP12 protein. As a result in both approaches basal transgene expression level was markedly reduced, but
These intriguing results compelled us to develop a wide range of analytical tools to better study the intricacies of cellular biosynthetic machinery. We have perfected non-aqueous subcellular fractionation techniques in order to separate chloroplasts and vacuoles from cytosol. We are operating a metabolite profiling system, using GC-MS, which allows us to distinguish among large numbers of metabolites within each of these samples (subcellular fractions or tissue samples). In excess of 300 compounds can be profiled in this way , 100 of these compounds having known chemical structures. A further experimental development that we are exploring is the use of chemically-inducible promoters to drive transgene expression in a controlled manner in order to study perturbations of metabolism on a temporal basis. In recent years we have additionally established an RT-PCR platform for tomato transcription factors and sensitive methods for following the metabolism of stable isotope labeled substrate and an ...

To detect the molecular lesion in miR 276aD8, genomic DNA through the miR 276aD8 Rosa animals was purified and PCR amplified by primers priming flanking areas. The PCR products was sequenced and it was determined that inside the miR 276aD8 allele, a three. 6Kb genomic area to the appropriate of the P component insertion webpage was deleted plus a two. 8Kb residual sequence of the P element order XAV-939 was left in the genome. Animals homozygous for miR 276aD8 are semi lethal and handful of animals survive for the duration of late pupal stage. Similarly, the exact excision alleles miR 276aA6 and miR 276aD2. two had been also produced by supplying transposase Delta 2 three in trans and mobilizing the P element precisely.

In this report, we describe that T cells can be modified to produce retrovirus after pharmacological induction with a rapalog dimerizer (Fig. 1) ⇓ . Furthermore, these T cells were able to deliver systemically a reporter transgene into a very significant fraction of metastatic tumor cells in the lung and liver (Fig. 2, A and B) ⇓ . When the retrovirus was modified to encode a therapeutic transgene, HSV-tk, we were able to show a significant increase in survival in mice receiving both rapalog to induce viral production and GCV as the cytotoxic prodrug in comparison with animals in which either or both drugs were withheld (Fig. 3A) ⇓ . Interestingly, for achieving a therapeutic effect, the retroviral carrier Jurkat cells had to be tumor-specific. This raises the possibility that CIR signaling results in a benefit over and above that which is produced by nonspecific cells trafficking to tumors and releasing virus. We showed in vivo that tumor specific Jurkat.CEA cells recruit parental Jurkat ...
Evidence for both developmental (Michaud et al., 1998, 2001) and postdevelopmental roles (Kublaoui et al., 2006b; Yang et al., 2006) for Sim1 exist; to determine their relative importance for feeding regulation, we took advantage of CaMKII-Cre expression in postmitotic neurons to generate conditional postnatal Sim1-deficient mice. The results of our studies strongly support a postnatal role for Sim1 in feeding regulation.. As some Cre transgenes have been reported to cause weight phenotypes (Schmidt-Supprian and Rajewsky, 2007), it was important for us to confirm that neither of the Cre lines used would confound our results. We collected weight curves of mice carrying the Cre93 and 159 transgenes compared with their wild-type littermates out to 18 weeks, which is older than the ages of the mice used in the conditional Sim1 knock-out experiments. Additionally, we included Cre-positive, loxP-negative controls in our conditional experiments. None of our Cre transgenes had a significant effect on ...

Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) is a CC chemokine that attracts monocytes and T lymphocytes in vitro; however, its in vivo functions are poorly understood. To address this question, we constructed transgenic mice expressing MCP-1 controlled by an insulin promoter. These mice developed a chronic insulitic infiltrate composed of F4/80+ monocytes with minor populations of CD4+, CD8+, and B220+ cells. Despite persistent transgene expression, the insulitis never progressed, and blood glucose levels remained normal. Thus, MCP-1 alone is sufficient to elicit a monocytic infiltrate, but not to activate elicited cells. These results differ from those obtained with another transgenic model using the mouse mammary tumor virus long terminal repeat, in which mice expressed substantial MCP-1 in several organs but had no infiltrates. However, mice expressing both transgenes had minimal insulitis, indicating that high systemic levels of MCP-1 prevented monocytes from responding to local MCP-1. Thus, ...
Objective: Induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells are bioengineered from somatic sources to acquire embryonic-like developmental potential. This study aims to evaluate the impact of imposed stemness load on the cardiogenic competency required for bona fide regenerative applications of iPS cells.. Rationale: Nuclear reprogramming inculcates pluripotent capacity by which de novo tissue differentiation is enabled. Yet, introduction of ectopic reprogramming factors imposes a stemness burden that may desynchronize natural developmental schedules and confound cardiac lineage specification.. Methods: Targeted inclusion and exclusion of reprogramming transgenes (c-MYC, KLF4, OCT4 and SOX2) was achieved using a drug-inducible and removable cassette according to the piggyBac transposon/transposase system.. Results: Pulsed transgene overexpression, prior to iPS cell differentiation, hindered cardiogenic outcomes. Transgene removal enabled proficient differentiation of iPS cells into cardiac tissue, not ...
The inactivation of endogenous plant genes during periods of stress or environmental changes has already been demonstrated. Although the expanding use of transgenic plants in scientific research has given hints for transgene inactivation caused by transinactivation, the first inactivation of transgene-encoded proteins caused by environmental changes was observed not before 1990. Transgenic Petunia hybrida plants, carrying the maize A1 cDNA under the control of the CaMV35S RNA promoter causing a salmon red flower phenotype, were released to the field. Environmental factors, possibly including heat, lead to a stable loss of flower pigmentation, accompanied by the methylation of the viral promoter. In the same year, the inactivation of the phosphinothricin resistance gene in single-cell cultures of a transgenic Medicago sativa line was observed in more than 90% of the cells after a 10-day heat treatment. In transgenic tobacco, different transgenes could be inactivated by a heat treatment (37°C), ...
FISH studies on several strongly transcribed chromosomal regions have shown a disposition for looping out from their respective chromosome territories (Mahy et al., 2002b; Volpi et al., 2000; Williams et al., 2002), suggesting a large-scale chromatin decondensation reminiscent of results obtained by targeting transcription factors to transgene arrays. In the first of these targeting studies chromatin decondensation was induced by the viral transcriptional VP16 acidic activation domain. Targeting was achieved within the context of large transgene arrays containing multiple-copy plasmid integrations; each plasmid carried direct repeats of 256 (Tumbar et al., 1999) or 96 (Tsukamoto et al., 2000) operator binding sites for fusion proteins between the lac or tet repressor and VP16. Despite the large opening activity observed, the biological relevance of these observations hinges on the actual physiological relevance of the experimental system. In particular, there are three obvious concerns.. First, ...
You are insane if you are drinking Biotechs GMO-infused Kool-Aid. Heres why…. Lets put aside the debate about antigenic proteins introduced by transgenes in GMO crops. Transgenes are genes from species that are not naturally present in crops of feed or food importance, e.g. spider genes, bacterial genes, viral genes, etc. These transgenes are capable of producing proteins in the plants that have never been in the human diet over the course of human evolution, stretching back thousands, even millions of years. GM proponents and regulators claim pseudo-scientifically that these novel new GM foods are substantially equivalent to conventional ones, despite a lack of human clinical toxicology studies to prove it; or, they claim that these proteins are inconsequential and do not represent a threat to human health, or the health of the biosphere as whole because they say so - a plea to their own self-appointed, baseless authority..

OBJECTIVE: Dual vector AAV systems are being utilised to enable gene therapy for disorders in which the disease gene is too large to fit into a single capsid. Fragmented adeno-associated viral (fAAV) vectors containing single inverted terminal repeat truncated transgenes have been considered as one such gene replacement strategy. Here we aim to add to the current understanding of the molecular mechanisms employed by fAAV dual vector systems. METHODS: Oversized (|8kb) transgene constructs containingABCA4coding sequence were packaged as truncated fragments |5kb in size into various AAV serotypes.In vitrotransductions with these fAAV vector preparations were conducted with mRNA and protein expression products assessed by way of RT-PCR, qPCR and western blot techniques. RESULTS: Transductions with fAAV vector preparations yieldedABCA4mRNA, but did not generate detectable levels of protein. Sequencing of the transcript population revealed the presence of full lengthABCA4CDS with additional

Public fears and concerns towards transgenic plant or animal have been there for years even though the scientific expects in China, at least, acclaimed that they are safe. The reason why people are afraid of transgenic technology and furthermore reject it is that public people dont know it at all, or have limited understanding.. You must have read lots of articles explaining why transgenic technology is safe, or on the other hand, dangerous. And here I believe current products of transgenic technology in your daily life are safe and healthy, because most of them are protein product indeed. It is the exogenous genes are translocated and expressed in the host, but the outcome is protein according to the known central dogma, hence the protein cannot hybridize with your genome so that you will not be mutated to Rice-Man. No need to panic.. ...
