Transcript of Alterations in Hsp27

Alterations in Hsp27 By Jonathan Munoz
Advised by Dr. Jody Martin What's Hsp27? Thermal
Oxidative (Hydrogen Peroxide)
Free Radicals Answer: A Protective Protein that maintains homeostasis Focusing Question:

How will changing the 137th amino acid, cytosine, affect the localization, olgimerization, and shape of Hsp27? Hsp27 Responds Hsp27 Prevents

Phosphorilating -Membrane Damage
Oligmerating -Denaturization
Localizing -Necrosis
-Apoptosis Environmental Stressors The Mutation Polar amino acid- cystine

Non-Polar Amino Acid Replaced with Video Imaging

Stressed native/mutant a7r5 cells

Cell types

a7r5 and H9c2 myoblasts
Applicable to Human studies
Increased amounts of Hsp27
Easily Transfected
Readily available

Obstacles After Hydrogen
Peroxide dilution We stressed six different H9c2 myoblasts and recorded the percentage of surviving cells.
Survivability Test
We tested six different cell lines:

1. one native species
2. one overexpressing hsp27
3. one with a green fluorescent protein attached
4. one with C137A Hsp27 mutation attached to a cfp
5. one infected with an empty virus
6. one overexpressing hsp27 attached to a cfp Each were subjugated to a 46° heat shock for a 1/2 hour and a 0, 250, 500, 750, 1000 M dilution of Hydrogen Peroxide for 4 hours. -Fluorescent proteins inhibit Hsp27
-Result in false positives
-Extra 27 kilodaltons
-Possibly test new theorem
Discussion Hsp27 with a cfp or gfp fusion had a significantly higher cell death. Conclusion Hypothesis: Inconclusive White blebing and cell convergance appeared in both the C137A mutation and unaltered a7r5 species. but... Results Video Imaging Hydrogen Peroxide No Treatment Both a7r5 strains, the native species and the c137a mutant experianced...

White blebbing

Cell shrinkage
Fading Away Survivability General decreasing trend

Overexpression of hsp27 increased survivability
cfp and gfp fusions showed slight decrease
