  2. CoPAP: Coevolution of Presence–Absence Patterns

    Ofir Cohen; Haim Ashkenazy; Eli Levy Karin; David Burstein; Tal Pupko
    Evolutionary analysis of phyletic patterns (phylogen-etic profiles) is widely used in biology, representing presence or absence of characters such as genes, restriction sites, introns, indels and methylation sites. The phyletic pattern observed in extant genomes is the result of ancestral gain and loss events along the phylogenetic tree. Here we present CoPAP (coevolution of presence–absence patterns), a user-friendly web server, which performs accurate inference of coevolving charac-ters as manifested by co-occurring gains and losses. CoPAP uses state-of-the-art probabilistic methodologies to infer coevolution and allows for advanced network analysis and visualization. We developed a platform for comparing different algorithms that detect...

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) belong to an abundant class of highly con-served small (22nt) non-coding RNAs. MiRNA profiling studies indicate that their expression is highly cell type-depen-dent. DICER1 is an essential RNase III endoribonuclease for miRNA process-ing. Hematopoietic cell type- and devel-opmental stage-specific Dicer1 deletion models show that miRNAs are essential regulators of cellular survival, differ-entiation and function. For instance, miRNA deficiency in hematopoietic stem cells and progenitors of different origins results in decreased cell survival, dra-matic developmental aberrations or dys-functions in mice. We recently found that homozygous Dicer1 deletion in myeloid-committed progenitors results in an aber-rant expression of stem cell genes...

    Abstract. Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a hematopoi-etic stem cell disease caused by the oncoprotein BCR-ABL, which exhibits a constitutive tyrosine kinase activity. Imatinib mesylate (IM), an inhibitor of the tyrosine kinase activity of BCR-ABL, has been used as a first-line therapy for CML. However, IM is less effective in the accelerated phase and blastic phases of CML and certain patients develop IM resistance due to the mutation and amplification of the BCR-ABL gene. Fangchinoline, an important chemical constituent from the dried roots of Stephaniae tetrandrae S. Moore, exhibits significant antitumor activity in various types of cancers, including breast, prostate...

  13. Age-associated epigenetic drift: implications, and a case of epigenetic thrift?

    Andrew E. Teschendorff; James West; Stephan Beck
    It is now well established that the genomic landscape of DNA methylation (DNAm) gets altered as a function of age, a process we here call ‘epigenetic drift’. The biological, functional, clinical and evolutionary significance of this epigenetic drift, however, remains unclear. We here provide a brief review of epigenetic drift, focusing on the potential implications for ageing, stem cell biology and disease risk prediction. It has been demonstrated that epigenetic drift affects most of the genome, suggesting a global deregulation of DNAm patterns with age. A com-ponent of this drift is tissue-specific, allowing remarkably accurate age-predictive models to be constructed....

  14. Background

    Mitsuyoshi Urashima; Takakuni Kato; Hiroshi Moriyama
    Progress in genomics has led to the identification of oncogenes, and genetic mutations associated with car-cinogenesis have been reported for many carcinomas. Furthermore, an increase in the gene copy number due to focal amplification or chromosomal polysomy is another major mechanism of oncogene activation [1]. In addition to progress in the understanding of signaling pathways, there have been pharmaceutical advances with regard to the development of drugs that target proteins in membrane receptors and the downstream signals associated with carcinogenesis. Various trials have been performed to assess individualized drugs for the treat-ment of cancer that target the patients ’ individual...

  15. Genome-wide analysis reveals distinct patterns of epigenetic features in long non-coding RNA loci

    Satish Sati; Sourav Ghosh; Vaibhav Jain; Vinod Scaria; Shantanu Sengupta
    A major fraction of the transcriptome of higher or-ganisms comprised an extensive repertoire of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) which express in a cell type and development stage-specific manner. While lncRNAs are a proven component of epigen-etic gene expression modulation, epigenetic regula-tion of lncRNA itself remains poorly understood. Here we have analysed pan-genomic DNA methyla-tion and histone modification marks (H3K4me3, H3K9me3, H3K27me3 and H3K36me3) associated with transcription start site (TSS) of lncRNA in four different cell types and three different tissue types representing various cellular stages. We observe that histone marks associated with active transcrip-tion H3K4me3 and H3K36me3 along with the...

  20. Agricultores familiares da região sul da amazônia brasileira: uma contribuição à crise ecológica global

    Abreu, Lucimar S. de; Santos, Amaury; Watanabe, Maria Aico
    Poucos estudos têm analisado o papel da população amazônica para a conservação ecológica da biodiversidade e para a redução dos efeitos da crise ecológica global. Esse estudo aborda experiências com Sistemas Agroflorestais (SAFs) desenvolvida pela Associação de Produtores Alternativos (APA), em Ouro Preto do Oeste - RO. O objetivo foi o de verificar se é possível conciliar a conservação ambiental com o desenvolvimento da agricultura familiar no sul da Amazônia. A hipótese é que a agrobiodiversidade associada aos sistemas agroflorestais contribui para a minimização da crise ambiental global. Essa afirmação se contrapõe ao velho diagnóstico de culpar os agricultores menos...
