  1. 1. OVEREXPRESSION OF REPETITIVE DNA <br />SEQUENCES DISCOVERED IN COMMON <br />TUMOR CELLS AND SINGLE CELL STUDIES<br /> IDENTIFY COACTIVATOR ROLE IN FAT CELL<br /> MATURATION<br /> <br />ALEJANDRO CARDONA PALACIO<br />MEDICINE STUDENT<br />

  3. 3.
  4. 4. Introduction<br /> DNA sequences <br />-- called satellite repeats -- is very active in cancer but not in normal tissue.  <br />Pancreatic cancer cells were correctly identified on the basis of the expression of satellite RNA.<br />PPAR gamma is known to regulate the production of adipocytes or fat cells. It regulates transcription -- making an RNA copy of DNA. <br />Some drugs used to treat type 2 diabetes increase the activity of PPAR gamma and this increased abdominal fat and, more recently, cardiovascular complications.<br />
  5. 5. Overexpression of Repetitive DNA Sequences Discovered in Common Tumor Cells<br />(ScienceDaily. February 28,2011)<br />
  6. 6. Analyzed samples<br />Mouse model of pancreatic cancer <br />Greatly increased satellite expression was also found in mouse colon and lung tumors<br />Find that satellite DNA was expressed at levels more than 100 times what would be expected in normal tissues. <br />With powerful overexpression of two satellites called HSATII and ALR in the majority of cancers studied<br />Analysis of human tumor samples produced similar results<br />tumors of the pancreas, lung, prostate<br />
  7. 7. Pancreatic cancer cells <br />Were correctly identified based on satellite RNA expression, which was appreciably higher than in nonmalignant cells. <br />If confirmed in large prospective clinical trials.<br />Satellite RNA expression may provide a new and highly specific biomarker relevant to multiple types of epithelial cancers.<br />
  8. 8. Daniel Haber, says………<br />"What is most remarkable is how such a dramatic abnormality was only revealed because of new powerful sequencing technologies that allow us to study a type of RNA that was previously discarded” <br />“Our hope is that this abnormality will serve as an important <br />biomarker in cancer diagnosis and that it will also shed light on <br />common mechanisms by which cancer develops."<br />
  9. 9. STUDENT OBSERVATION: NEWS Nº 1<br />Using powerful new DNA analysis techniques to achieve more satellite significant progress in this field in order to understand and analyze the molecular form different types of cancer and thus provide a possible development of a cure for this disease.<br />Digital gene expression analysis system called single molecule next-generation sequencing<br />New insightsintotheformation, growth of malignantcellsresponsibleforthisdisease.<br />
  10. 10. PPAR gamma<br />Are a group of nuclear receptor proteins that function as transcription factors regulating the expression of genes. <br />PPARs play essential roles in the regulation of cellular differentiation, development and metabolism (carbohydrate, lipid, protein) and tumorigenesisof higher organisms.<br />Steroid receptor coactivator<br />Hartig said reduced levels of SRC-2 and 3 resulted in more<br />cells with low levels of lipid and increased PPAR gamma. <br />
  11. 11. PPAR gamma (peroxisomeproliferator activated receptor gamma)<br />Can vary widely, but the fat cells (adipocytes)<br />Can maintain stable levels of master switches known as steroid receptor coactivators (SRC)-2 and -3.<br />
  12. 12. PPAR gamma …<br />….is known to regulate the production of adipocytes or fat cells<br />… regulates transcription -- making an RNA copy of DNA, which is the first step in gene expression.<br />… and linear connection between PPAR gamma transcriptional regulator and lipids in a cell.<br />
  13. 13. PPAR gamma<br />
  14. 14. STUDENT OBSERVATION: NEWS Nº 2<br />ForExample in the central nervoussystem<br />Itshould further investigate the importance of PPAR gamma in the treatment of diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and the central nervous system and from this to an approach to future scientific discoveries around the field.<br />Have evidence that these receptors (PPAR) are involved in neuronal differentiation and protection and are potential pharmacological targets in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.<br />
  15. 15. MEDICAL UTILITY<br />DNA sequences<br />Role in chromosome structure<br />First News<br />DNA sequences -- called satellite repeats -- have been studied for their role in chromosome structure, to take an active role in cancer, The search for greater expression of satellite in low-grade tumors showed that overexpression begins early in tumor development, which has implications for early detection.By analysis showed that pancreatic cancer cells were correctly identified on the basis of the expression of satellite RNA, which was significantly higher than in nonmalignant cells.<br />IdentifyCancer<br />Pancreas<br />Lungs<br />Epithelial<br />
  16. 16. Cancer cells<br />FOR EXAMPLE….<br /> Were correctly identified <br />on the basis of the expression of satellite RNA<br />Malignant cancer is a tumor in which an aggregation of individual cells begin to grow in a rapid, uncontrolled and abnormal manner and it is now understood that cancer is caused by the mutations of a gene which confer increased abnormal growth potential to cells.<br />
  17. 17. PPAR gamma is known to regulate the production of adipocytes or fat cells. It regulates transcription -- making an RNA copy of DNA, which is the first step in gene expression --<br />MEDICAL UTILITY<br />Second News<br />PPAR gamma is known to regulate the production of adipocytes or fat cells. It regulates transcription -- making an RNA copy of DNA, which is the first step in gene expression and is important because some drugs used to treat type 2 diabetes increase the activity of PPAR gamma. These include the thiazolidines such as Actos and Avandia, which increase the levels of genes associated with sensitivity to insulin. However, because PPAR gamma stimulates fat cell production, these drugs can also lead to increased abdominal fat and, more recently, cardiovascular complications.<br /> <br />Some drugs used to treat type 2 diabetes increase the activity of PPAR gamma.
