Mplicons were than separated with magnetic Ampure beads (Agencourt) to eliminate the non-binded adaptors. Emulsification of the 1485-00-3 web ligated emPCR was done according to the manufacturer’s protocol (Roche 454). The library was than sequenced with clonal pyrosequencing technic (454 GS Junior – Roche) with 200 cycles, in 400 bases read length mode. After sequencing, image processing and signal processing (amplicon pipeline) the amplicon variant analyzer software (Roche Diagnostics) was used to demultiplex the samples after MIDs, to trim the primers and to align the reads to the reference cDNA sequence. In the case of splice variants the difference between variants and the complete reference cDNA sequence can be too high. Therefore the reads were aligned to every exon separately to identify the real exon combination. The alignment was successful if there was higher identity than 90 in more than 20 bases length in every exons. The exon combinations which have more than 50 reads were reported.carried out with control cDNA of A431 human squamous cell carcinoma) and by normalizing the starting quantities to the housekeeping b-actin starting quantities from the same cDNS sample. Three parallel measurements were carried out on each sample in every case.Results CD44 Variable Exons and Possible Isoforms at mRNA LevelWe visualized the expression of CD44 variable exons in HT168 human melanoma by 26001275 performing PCR reactions pairing the sense (59) primers of variable exons with the common antisense (39) primer localized on exon 16 and variable exon’s antisense (39) primers with the common sense (59) on the standard exon 4. Our results showed, that all the variable exons, which are considered variable in databases (v2-v10) were present. Also, this method with the overlapping sequences allowed us to construct some of the isoforms (Fig. 1 and Fig. S5), although, this still seems rather inaccurate as some of the exons seemed to have been of slightly different size. This size difference can possibly be explained by the fact that by next generation sequencing on the same tumour, we identified a daunting number of small deletions across the CD44 isoforms (data not shown). We made further attempts and cloned our PCR products from A2058 and HT168 M1 human melanoma cell lines, which resulted in 80-49-9 site certain isoforms being more dominant and inserting at a higher rate, but yet again, the full set of the expected/calculated isoforms could not be identified. However, direct sequencing of some of the cloned sequences confirmed that v1, is in fact missing in some of the isoforms, which tied in nicely, with our above mentioned PCR-based results (Fig. 2A). Furthermore, some isoforms contained a truncated version of v1 (Fig. 2B).Culturing on Different MatricesFibronectin, laminin, collagen IV Matrigel, hyaluronate (each 50 mg/ml) and 0,9 NaCl solution (as control) were administered into different wells of a 6-well plate. After 3 hours of incubation on RT, supernatants were removed. 1? ml of 56104 cell/ml suspensions of HT168M1 was administered on the prepared matrix-films. After 72 hours of incubation, we removed supernatants, washed cell-films with EDTA, up-digested cell-films with tripsin-EDTA, collected up-grown cell suspensions and extracted total-RNA of cell masses with TRI-Reagent method.Metastasis Models Using scid MiceThis study was carried out in strict accordance with the recommendations and was approved by the Semmelweis University Regional and Institutional Committee of.Mplicons were than separated with magnetic Ampure beads (Agencourt) to eliminate the non-binded adaptors.
