Many biological processes are intrinsically dynamic, incurring profound changes at both molecular and physiological levels. Systems analyses of such processes incorporating large-scale transcriptome or proteome profiling can be quite revealing. Although consistency between mRNA and proteins is often implicitly assumed in many studies, examples of divergent(More)
BACKGROUND The genomes of Streptomyces coelicolor and Streptomyces lividans bear a considerable degree of synteny. While S. coelicolor is the model streptomycete for studying antibiotic synthesis and differentiation, S. lividans is almost exclusively considered as the preferred host, among actinomycetes, for cloning and expression of exogenous DNA. We used(More)
BACKGROUND A small "sigma-like" protein, AfsS, pleiotropically regulates antibiotic biosynthesis in Streptomyces coelicolor. Overexpression of afsS in S. coelicolor and certain related species causes antibiotic stimulatory effects in the host organism. Although recent studies have uncovered some of the upstream events activating this gene, the mechanisms(More)
Streptomyces spp. produce a variety of valuable secondary metabolites, which are regulated in a spatio-temporal manner by a complex network of inter-connected gene products. Using a compilation of genome-scale temporal transcriptome data for the model organism, Streptomyces coelicolor, under different environmental and genetic perturbations, we have(More)
Baby Hamster Kidney (BHK) cell lines are used in the production of veterinary vaccines and recombinant proteins. To facilitate transcriptome analysis of BHK cell lines, we embarked on an effort to sequence, assemble, and annotate transcript sequences from a recombinant BHK cell line and Syrian hamster liver and brain. RNA-seq data were supplemented with(More)
DNA microarray-based transcriptomics have been used to determine the time course of laboratory and manufacturing-scale perfusion bioreactors in an attempt to characterize cell physiological state at these two bioreactor scales. Given the limited availability of genomic data for baby hamster kidney (BHK) cells, a Chinese hamster ovary (CHO)-based microarray(More)
Current techniques for quantitative proteomics focus mainly on measuring overall protein dynamics, which is the net result of protein synthesis and degradation. Understanding the rate of this synthesis/degradation is essential to fully appreciate cellular dynamics and bridge the gap between transcriptome and proteome data. Protein turnover rates can be(More)
Transcriptional regulation in differentiating microorganisms is highly dynamic involving multiple and interwinding circuits consisted of many regulatory genes. Elucidation of these networks may provide the key to harness the full capacity of many organisms that produce natural products. A powerful tool evolved in the past decade is global transcriptional(More)
The global turnover rates of cellular proteins and the secretion rate of a recombinant immunoglobulin G (IgG) in a myeloma cell line, NS0, were determined using SILAC proteomic analysis. After complete labeling of cellular proteins with (13)C(6), (15)N(4)-arginine, cells were transferred to unlabeled medium and the decay of the labeled arginine in proteins(More)
