New Epigenetic Technologies for Biomedical Research: microRNA, Chromatin IP, and DNA Methylation PCR Arrays

Epigenetics has grabbed the attention of many researchers by providing new insights into cell differentiation and oncogenesis. These rapidly expanding studies examine how heritable factors not coded within genomic DNA sequences regulate gene expression. Such factors include DNA methylation, chromatin remodeling due to histone modification, and even, in some cases, microRNA. The experimental methods designed to discover and correlate these factors with biological phenotypes have evolved. However, many still suffer from poor sensitivity and reliability, low-throughput, and unnecessary complexity. This Webinar introduces advanced yet easy-to-use real-time PCR array technologies that analyze microRNA as well as mRNA expression profiles, CpG island DNA methylation, and chromatin immunoprecipitation fractions. Find out how easily real-time PCR-based epigenetics experiments can be performed in cancer and stem cell research to better understand the molecular epigenetic mechanisms regulating key genes of interest.

Oxidative Stress: New Research Solutions

Oxidative stress is the result of an imbalance in pro-oxidant/antioxidant homeostasis that arises from persistent elevation of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) production. Besides endogenous sources of ROS, such as those produced by mitochondria, peroxisomes, and inflammatory cell activation, there exist multiple exogenous sources of ROS, including environmental pollutants, pharmaceutical agents, and industrial toxins. When not counterbalanced by antioxidant defenses of the cell, oxidative stress damages vital cellular macromolecules, including DNA, protein, and lipids.  Oxidative stress disrupts essential cellular functions and is implicated in several human diseases, including cancer, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.  This webinar will focus on providing a detailed introduction to oxidative stress, outline of the cellular antioxidant defense mechanisms, and current research tools that detect oxidative stress in vitro.

Gaining Further Insight into Cancer-Related Inflammation using QIAGEN RT2 Profiler PCR Arrays and Ingenuity iReport

Using previously published data, this webinar will demonstrate how iReport provides rapid and accurate biological interpretation and understanding of expression data from QIAGEN’s pathway-focused RT2 Profiler PCR Arrays. Despite its importance to tumor growth, the causes of cancer-related inflammation are not well understood. Previous studies have found that the a2 isoform vacuolar adenosine triphosphatase is present on the cell surface of many solid tumors and that its overexpression is linked to tumor invasiveness and poor clinical outcome. Further, a peptide cleaved from the protein (a2NTD) activates monocytes. Kwong et al. treated THP-1 cells (a human monocytic cell line derived from an acute monocytic leukemia patient) with media containing or lacking a2NTD for various time points. Total RNA from these cells were analyzed on the Human Inflammatory Response & Autoimmunity RT2 Profiler PCR Array to determine responses promoting or inhibiting inflammation and oncogenesis. From the fold-change and p-value results, iReport quickly suggested the involvement of related pathways also discussed by the paper, including leukocyte migration, motility, and recruitment as well as increased endothelial cell permeability. Both the published results and the iReport indicate that pathway-focused gene panels can suggest not only mechanisms of action, but also novel insights related to other pathways, especially when analyzed by iReport. The presented analysis strategies can be applied to a variety of gene expression datasets from other pathway-focused RT2 Profiler PCR Arrays.

Advanced Pyrosequencing for Microbial Identification and Drug Resistance Typing

Pyrosequencing is a highly flexible technology based on sequencing-by-synthesis for the rapid and quantitative analysis of any type of sequence variation. The real-time output delivers high-resolution sequence information and enables detection of pathogens of interest without the need for gels, labeled dyes, or probes. Quantitative sequence data offers the ability to analyze mutations in mixed samples and to determine bacterial, fungal, and viral resistance and loads. With the new PyroMark Q24 Advanced system, QIAGEN has developed a new technology, software, and chemistry that overcomes the current bottleneck of limited sequence reads. The PyroMark Q24 Advanced system provides sequence reads that are typically twice as long as those from previous PyroMark systems. The new system also reduces background noise in the Pyrosequencing reaction, enabling improved quantification, even at sites distant from the sequencing start. Thus, the new PyroMark Q24 Advanced system is ideally suited for applications in which the sequencing length is crucial and sequence variations need to be quantified with high precision.
