Tools for studying and using small RNAs: from pathways to functions to therapies
Kenneth Chang and Gregory J. Hannon

This poster provides an overview of the tools that have been developed to understand the functions of small RNAs and, conversely, the use of small RNAs as tools. Tools that are based on small RNAs have been exploited to investigate gene function in cultured cells and in living animals. Small RNA biogenesis, discovery and functional roles are explored in detail. Screening approaches to functional genomics, in vivo methods and potential therapeutic applications are discussed.

Knockdown of p53 by Accell self-delivering siRNA causes inhibition of p53-dependent DNA damage response in IMR-32 neuroblastoma cell line and β-amyloid toxicity in rat cortical neurons
Žaklina Strezoska, Tamara Seredenina1, Devin Leake, Annaleen Vermeulen

Here we describe how application of Accell siRNA enabled the development of a high content screening assay in IMR-32 neuroblastoma cells and a whole culture cell viability assay in primary rat cortical neurons.

An Efficient Method for the Incorporation of Molecular Probes at Multiple/Specific sites in RNA: Levulinyl Protection for 2'-ACE ® , 5'-Silyl Oligoribonucleotide Synthesis
Xiaoqin Cheng, Shawn Begay, Randy Rauen, Kelly Grimsley, Kaizhang He, Michael Delaney

A unique method that uses a levulinate ester as a protecting group to introduce conjugates or molecular probes to virtually any location in a synthetic RNA molecule is discussed. The Levulinyl protecting group is stable in RNA synthesis conditions and can be removed without affecting the other parts of the synthesized RNA. We show the capabilities of this approach with three high-complexity synthesis examples.

Bovine RNA-seq data analysis of liver and pituitary gland
Pareek CS12, Smoczynski R12, Dziuba P12, Sikora M12, Golebiewski M2, Blaszczyk P12, Gelfand B3, Yaping F3, Kumar D3.

Two key applications of RNA-seq i.e., i) transcriptome read mapping to a reference genome and ii) SNP detections were investigated to analysis of bovine liver and pituitary gland transcriptome. Here, we have presented ONLY the obtained results of bovine pituitary gland.

Innovative technology that enables RNAi in difficult to transfect cells
Christina Yamada, Kathryn Robinson, Allison St. Amand, Zaklina Strezoska, Greg Wardle, Anastasia Khvorova, Devin Leake

Investigations at Dharmacon have led to the development of innovative siRNA molecules that can be delivered into difficult-to-transfect cells without additional lipid reagents, virus, or instruments. This technology, Accell siRNA reagents, enables gene knockdown for functional genomic studies in a wide variety of cell types. In some instances, cells can be continuously dosed with Accell siRNAs to enable target gene knockdown for extended durations.

THe AtSCL26 transcription factor controls cross-talk between GA and N root architecture in Arabidopsis thaliana roots
Beatriz Lagunas, Anthony D. Carter, Dafyd Jenkins and Miriam Gifford

Phenotypic and molecular evidence supports the hypothesis that developmental program enabling nodule formation arose during evolution from a lateral root ‘blueprint’ pre-existing in all higher plants . We reasoned that analyzing Arabidopsis genes orthologous to regulators of nodulation could shed insight on control of lateral root development. This led us to the discovery that an Arabidopsis GRAS family transcription factor controls lateral root development under specific nitrogen conditions.

LOHA Comprehensive Assay for Single Nucleotide Polymorphism, Copy Number Variants and Loss of Heterozygosity Using SureSelect Target Enrichment
Kyeong Soo Jeong, Arjun Vadapalli, Ashutosh Ashutosh, Paula Costa, Brian Peter, Stephanie Fulmer-Smentek, Magnus Isaksson, Jayati Ghosh, Douglas Roberts, Holly Hogrefe

Here we describe a comprehensive assay that enables researchers to identify SNP, INDEL, CNV, and LOH using SureSelect target enrichment. This design can be employed as a standalone entity or in concert with other bait designs for SNP and INDEL detection. We also describe methods for data analysis and visualization.
