GSE60941: Molecular mechanism behind the hematopoiesis-enhancing effect of SRT3025

Bulk RNA sequencing

We used wild-type 129 mice to understand the mechanism of action behind SRT3025s hematopoiesis-enhancing effect. Transcriptome analysis of cKit+ Sca1+ Lin- cells (KSL) cells discovered that a list of genes changed their expression levels significantly after SRT3025 administration in wild-type mice. Most notably, the cell cycle regulator p21 was down-regulated by 2.1 fold after SRT3025 administration. It is possible that the transcriptional suppression of p21 by SRT3025 might contribute to the compounds beneficial effects on hematopoiesis. It has to be pointed out that, since our transcriptome analysis was limited to hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell population, we cannot rule out the possibility that SRT3025 works through the regulation of other cells such as certain important HSC niche components. The HSC niche is known to regulate stem cell pool size. Among the other genes suppressed by SRT3025, Thbs1 and Fosl2 encode thrombospondin 1 and Fos-like antigen 2, respectively. Both proteins are components of the HSC niche. SOURCE: Qingshuo Zhang ( - Oregon Health & Science University
