The administration of 16109 vector genomes was not observed in muscles examined 7 days after vector delivery (Fig. 1b). In muscles expressing high levels of hPLAP when examined 28 days after rAAV6:hPLAP administration, MedChemExpress 13655-52-2 numerous centrally nucleated muscle fibers were observed, suggesting a regenerative response to the prior degeneration of transduced muscle fibers (see arrows). The cellular infiltration and muscle degeneration observed was determined to be a product of hPLAP expression, as expression of another transgene ?human follistatin-288 [17], following administration of an equivalent vector dose, did not induce an inflammatory response and disruption of tissue architecture.Real Time QPCRTotal RNA was collected from snap frozen tissue following homogenization in ice-cold Trizol (Invitrogen). 500?000 ng of RNA was reverse transcribed using the High Capacity RNA-tocDNA kit (Applied Biosystems). cDNA was subsequently analyzed by quantitative RT-PCR using target specific probe and primer sets for EMR1, ITGAX, TNFa, IL-1b MyoD and IL-6 (TaqmanTM, Applied Biosystems) alongside a probe and primers for 18S used to standardize for cDNA concentrations. For miR206 analysis, Assay on DemandTM reagents (Applied Biosystems) were used according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Data were analyzed using the DDCT method of analysis and are presented as fold change to a control value of 1.Western BlottingTA muscles were homogenized in RIPA-based lysis buffer (Merck Millipore) with 25837696 EDTA-free protease and phosphatase inhibitor cocktails (CompleteTM Tablets, Roche). Lysis was followed by centrifugation at 130006g for 10 min at 4uC and samples were denatured for 5 min at 95uC. Protein concentration was determined using a micro protein assay kit (Pierce, Thermo Scientific). Protein fractions were subsequently separated by SDSPAGE using pre-cast 4?2 Bis-Tris gels (Invitrogen), blotted onto nitrocellulose membranes (Biorad) and order 76932-56-4 incubated with the appropriate antibody overnight. All primary antibodies were made up at 1:1000 dilutions in PBS-tween containing 5 BSA, except GAPDH (used at 1:5000). Membranes were washed and incubated in the appropriate secondary (used at 1:5000) for 1 hour at room temperature. Membranes were then developed as described previously [23]. Quantification of labeled Western blots was performed using ImageJ pixel analysis (NIH Image software) [24], and data are normalized to a control value of 1. Densitometric analyses of Western blots are presented as band density normalized to the loading control, and are representative of at least three independent experiments.rAAV Vector-mediated Expression of hPLAP Promotes Recruitment of Macrophages and T-cells, and the Activation of Inflammatory Signaling CascadesTo confirm that expression of hPLAP in murine TA skeletal muscle induces a response that is associated with macrophage recruitment, we measured the expression of pro-inflammatory macrophage markers in response to increasing doses of vector administration. Whilst the administration of 16108 vector genomes did not affect EMR1 or ITGAX expression, administration of 16109 or more vector genomes led to marked increases in EMR and ITGAX expression in lysates obtained from muscle samples examined after 14 days (Fig. 2a). Of the time points studied, EMR expression peaked at 14 days, and subsided thereafter until 28 days where there was no significant difference when compared to TA muscles injected with rAVA6:CMV-MCS (Fig. 2b).
