Time:
         4 pm

Das Auge empfängt und verarbeitet visuellen Informationen. Es stellt das wichtigste Organ des Menschen zur Wahrnehmung der Umwelt dar. Die Beeinträchtigung der visuellen Funktion bis hin zur Erblindung aufgrund des Verlustes von Fotorezeptoren, den lichtempfindlichen Zellen der Netzhaut, ist eine der häufigsten Ursachen für Behinderungen in Industrieländern. Die menschliche Netzhaut besitzt keine eigenen Reparaturmechanismen und ist folglich nicht imstande, Fotorezeptoren zu ersetzen, die aufgrund von Verletzungen oder vererbbaren Krankheiten abgestorben sind. Neben Informationen über Aufbau und Funktion des Auges sollen mögliche zukünftige Behandlungsmethoden (Zell- und Gen-basierte Therapien) vorgestellt werden, um erkrankte Fotorezeptoren zu retten bzw. zu ersetzen

Ian Willis ? Seminar on ?Synthetic Trigenic Interactions Linking Transcription, Phospholipid Biosynthesis and the Functions of Cellular Organelles?:

    Lipid droplets are dynamic cytoplasmic organelles and serve as the principal reservoirs for storing cellular energy.  Stored lipid is accessed in a regulated fashion according to metabolic needs to provide energy via ?-oxidation of fatty acids and substrates for the synthesis of membrane phospholipids. In addition, the hydrolytic products of triglycerides and steryl esters derived from lipid droplets influence second messenger signaling, play a central role in cholesterol homeostasis and contribute to the synthesis of steroid hormones and bile acids.  The metabolic functions of lipid droplets and the cells that house them are significantly perturbed under conditions of excess triglyceride accumulation and contribute to the pathogenesis major metabolic diseases (e.g. obesity, diabetes and atherosclerosis). Knowledge about the involvement of lipid droplets in disease has grown substantially in recent years. In contrast, many fundamental questions about the biogenesis, physical properties and interactions of lipid droplets with other organelles have yet to be resolved. The FAT-Inducing Transcript (FIT) genes are conserved from yeast to humans and were recently identified as being important for the formation of lipid droplets in mammals and zebrafish. We are investigating the FIT genes in yeast and have defined a large network of functionally-associated genes based on their synthetic genetic phenotypes. The properties of the genes in this interaction network indicate that FIT gene function is important for lipid homeostasis. Genetic interactions involving specific bioprocesses suggest mechanisms by which deletions of the FIT genes can exacerbate or rescue different biochemical defects.  These data illuminate the function of the FIT genes in lipid biology.

Neue Zellen im Gehirn - Chancen für das Lernen im Alter


12/05/2010

Dresdner Seniorenakademie - Wissenschaft und Kunst

Dr. Alexander Garthe talks about the topic:
"
Neue Zellen im Gehirn - Chancen für das Lernen im Alter"

Time:         14.50 - 16.20 pm
Location:   Biotechnology Center of the TU Dresden, Tatzberg 47/49, 01307 Dresden, seminar room 1, 5th floor

Summary:
Auch im erwachsenen Gehirn entstehen bis ins hohe Alter neue Nervenzellen, welche einen entscheidenden Beitrag zum Gelingen von Lernvorgängen leisten. Die Anzahl und das Überleben dieser neuen Zellen werden durch physisches und kognitives Training direkt beeinflusst.

Chromosomen unter Spannung: Mit Nanomagneten DNA manipulieren


22/09/2010

September 22, 2010

Dresdner Seniorenakademie - Wissenschaft und Kunst

Friedrich Schwarz talks about the topic:
"
Chromosomen unter Spannung: Mit Nanomagneten DNA manipulieren"

Time:         14.50 - 16.20 pm
Location:   Biotechnology Center of the TU Dresden, Tatzberg 47/49, 01307 Dresden, seminar room 05, ground floor

Summary:
Die DNA in unseren Chromosomen steht ständig unter Spannung. Einerseits müssen ca.1 m DNA so gebündelt werden, dass sie in einem Zellkern von nur wenigen Mikrometern untergebracht werden können. Andererseits muss die kompakte DNA gut zugänglich sein, damit Enzyme den genetischen Code der DNA ablesen können. Ein Instrument mit dem man diese Spannung untersuchen kann, ist die sogenannte magnetische Pinzette. Mittels starker Magneten kann man nun Kräfte auf DNA oder Chromosomen ausüben.

Recent genome-wide studies allow a first glimpse into the complexities of transcription factor-DNA interactions in specific cell types, however, we know very little about the molecular details of the hierarchical action of different transcription factors during development and how the ordered interplay of transcription factors and specific chromatin states eventually leads to the stable expression of lineage specific genetic programs defining specific cell types.
The haematopoietic system represents a powerful experimental model to address these questions and our previous experiments focused on a regulatory circuit playing a central role in myelopoiesis: the transcription factor PU.1, and its target gene Colony-Stimulating-Factor 1 Receptor (Csf1r). Both genes are crucially dependent on the expression of the transcription factor RUNX1. Definitive hematopoiesis in the embryo is faithfully recapitulated in differentiating mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells, allowing to isolate different precursor types in sufficient numbers to perform biochemical experiments. These cells can be genetically manipulated, thus allowing to dissect the contribution of individual transcription factors on the programming of chromatin of blood-cell specific genes. Using this system, we showed by in vivo footprinting that unfolding of chromatin at Pu.1 and a selective demethylation of DNA at its cis-elements are the first steps that prime this gene prior to the onset of gene expression (Hooogenkamp et al., 2009). Using a Runx1-/- ES cell line carrying an inducible version of RUNX1 (iRUNX1), we demonstrated that chromatin activation at Pu.1 is directly dependent on RUNX1. At the same developmental stage Csf1r is fully methylated and later chromatin activation requires both, RUNX1 and PU.1.
Without RUNX1 the differentiation of the hemogenic endothelium into hematopoietic cells is blocked. The inducible system therefore enables us to dissect RUNX1 dependent and RUNX1 independent gene activation processes, both in a gene-specific as well as in a global fashion. Prior to RUNX1 induction, a subset of Pu.1 upstream cis-regulatory elements is already bound by a subset of the normal complement of transcription factors, and, surprisingly, by RNA-polymerase II. The induction of RUNX1 leads to the activation of chromatin and the onset of transcription.
Using the same inducible system, we have performed a global analysis of the genes in the hemogenic endothelium that bind RUNX1 immediately after induction. These analyses confirmed that at the onset of hematopoietic development RUNX1 acts in a strictly hierarchical fashion and identify a set of target genes that are likely to be of outmost importance for the specification of hematopoietic cells. We also performed a global analysis of the dynamics of PU.1 binding and observed a similar hierarchy of binding. Our experiments give a fascinating insight into the molecular details of how early acting transcription factors specify hematopoietic cells.

Was das Erbgut über unsere Gesundheit aussagt


10/11/2010

November 10, 2010

Dresdner Seniorenakademie - Wissenschaft und Kunst

Dr. Andreas Beyer talks about the topic:

"Was das Erbgut über unsere Gesundheit aussagt"

Time:         10.00 - 11.30 am
Location:   Biotechnology Center of the TU Dresden, Tatzberg 47/49, 01307 Dresden, seminar room 1, 5th floor

Summary: Innerhalb der nächsten Jahre wird jeder (gegen entsprechendes Geld) die vollständige Sequenz seines Erbguts erhalten können. Doch was sagt uns diese Sequenz? Wieviel verrät sie über Krankheitsrisiken? Wie bestimmen Biologen und Mediziner solche Risiken und welche Mechanismen liegen
ihnen zugrunde? Die Verfügbarkeit dieser Daten wird erhebliche gesellschaftliche, ökonomische und rechtliche Fragen aufwerfen. Dieser Vortrag möchte ich die Grundlagen vermitteln, um an diesen Diskussionen partizipieren zu können.
