A global understanding of the actions of the nuclear hormone 1a,25-dihydroxyvitamin D 3 (1a,25(OH) 2 D 3) and its vitamin D receptor (VDR) requires a genome-wide analysis of VDR binding sites. In THP-1 human monocytic leukemia cells we identified by ChIP-seq 2340 VDR binding locations, of which 1171 and 520 occurred uniquely with and without 1a,25(OH) 2 D 3(More)
The interactions and functions of protein inhibitors of activated STAT (PIAS) proteins are not restricted to the signal transducers and activators of transcription (STATs), but PIAS1, -2, -3 and -4 interact with and regulate a variety of distinct proteins, especially transcription factors. Although the majority of PIAS-interacting proteins are prone to(More)
BACKGROUND Microarray technologies are rapidly becoming available for new species including teleost fishes. We constructed a rainbow trout cDNA microarray targeted at the identification of genes which are differentially expressed in response to environmental stressors. This platform included clones from normalized and subtracted libraries and genes selected(More)
We used high-density cDNA microarray in studies of responses of rainbow trout fry at sublethal ranges of beta-naphthoflavone, cadmium, carbon tetrachloride, and pyrene. The differentially expressed genes were grouped by the functional categories of Gene Ontology. Significantly different response to the studied compounds was shown by a number of classes,(More)
BACKGROUND High throughput methods of the genome era produce vast amounts of data in the form of gene lists. These lists are large and difficult to interpret without advanced computational or bioinformatic tools. Most existing methods analyse a gene list as a single entity although it is comprised of multiple gene groups associated with separate biological(More)
The liver X receptors (LXRs) are oxysterol sensing nuclear receptors with multiple effects on metabolism and immune cells. However, the complete genome-wide cistrome of LXR in cells of human origin has not yet been provided. We performed ChIP-seq in phorbol myristate acetate-differentiated THP-1 cells (macrophage-type) after stimulation with the potent(More)
Alpha-synuclein containing cellular inclusions are a hallmark of Parkinson Disease, Lewy Body Dementia, and Multiple System Atrophy. A genome wide expression screen was performed in C. elegans overexpressing both wild-type and A53T human alpha-synuclein. 433 genes were up- and 67 genes down-regulated by statistical and fold change (> or <2) criteria. Gene(More)
The signaling cascade of the transcription factor vitamin D receptor (VDR) is triggered by its specific ligand 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1α,25(OH)2D3). In this study we demonstrate that in THP-1 human monocytic leukemia cells 87.4% of the 1034 most prominent genome-wide VDR binding sites co-localize with loci of open chromatin. At 165 of them 1α,25(OH)2D3(More)
Segmentation aims to separate homogeneous areas from the sequential data, and plays a central role in data mining. It has applications ranging from finance to molecular biology, where bioinformatics tasks such as genome data analysis are active application fields. In this paper, we present a novel application of segmentation in locating genomic regions with(More)
