Application of oligo-microarray in an in vitro study of the effects of pulsatile fluid shear stress on gene expression of human smooth muscle cells



Application of oligo-microarray in an in vitro study of the effects of pulsatile fluid shear stress on gene expression of human smooth muscle cells



Sheng Wu Yi Xue Gong Cheng Xue Za Zhi 21(2): 208-211



We assessed the effects of pulsatile flow shear stress on the gene expression profiles of human umbilical artery smooth muscle cells (HUASMCs) in vitro using the Express Chip DNA microarray method and investigated the difference between pulsatile and steady shear stress on differentially expressed genes of HUASMCs. In a modified pulsatile flow chamber system, HUASMCs were exposed to pulsatile and steady fluid shear stress (5.52 dyne/cm2) for 6 h respectively, and normal static cultured HUASMCs were selected as a control. The total cellular RNA was extracted by TRIzol Reagent (Life Technologies, Inc) according to the manufacturer's manual. Conversion of mRNA to single strand cDNA and double strand cDNA template was synthesized by Reverse Transcription from the total RNA. cRNA probe was transcribed with biotin labeling. After hybridization of probe with microarray, the binding of streptavidin to biotin was performed and amplified with the first antibody and further amplified with Cy3-conjugated second antibody. Then detection of Cy3 dye was carried out with ScanArray 5000. The results showed that a total of 1,330 genes revealed differential expression in HUASMCs exposed on pulsatile shear stress (5.52 dyne/cm2, 6 h); however, 2,676 genes revealed differential expression in HUASMCs exposed on steady shear stress. Comparsion of HUASMCs exposed to pulsatile with the HUASMCs exposed to steady shear stress showed there were 2,297 genes revealing differential expression. The transcriptional profile of fluidally induced genes in HUASMCs suggested a different response to pulsatile and steady shear stress.
