Example text

Additional evidence can be derived from microarray analysis of gene expression in cells following target inhibition, whether the target is suppressed with a candidate compound or ablated by short interfering RNA (siRNA). Since it is anticipated that target inhibition will suppress the pathways controlled by the target, this application of microarrays may elucidate the signaling mechanisms initiated by the target, and if these mechanisms are known mediators of the disease process, such experiments may provide additional validation of the target.

To elucidate the pathway involved in the drug’s mechanism, cells are treated with the drug at different time points and profiled with expression microarrays. The resulting gene expression signatures are mapped to intracellular pathways. Genes involved in the activated pathways are then scanned for polymorphisms. The polymorphisms identified are considered candidate markers for drug efficacy because they may affect the drug’s mechanism. 6 Use of cultured cell lines in pharmacogenetic studies in oncology to identify markers of sensitivity to anticancer drugs.

The transcript, or messenger RNA (mRNA), serves as a template for protein synthesis by ribosomes in a process termed translation. When the gene is transcribed to produce RNA, it is said to be expressed, and when a gene is not transcribed, it is said to be repressed. While all normal cells in an organism have the same set of genes, the spectrum of expressed genes (often referred to as the transcriptome) varies among different cell types and changes with the phases of the cell cycle and the stage of cell differentiation.
