Work-in-Progress Conference & Seminar Series

“Single-cell RNA sequencing reveals markers of stem/progenitor spermatogonia in higher primates”

Sarah Munyoki

Graduate Student, Orwig Lab, University of Pittsburgh, Magee-Womens Research Institute

Objective: The presentation will focus on the use of single cell RNA sequencing data from adult human and monkey testis tissue to identify protein markers of spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs). I will discuss our work investigating whether these markers can be exploited for sorting, enhancing survival and expansion in culture of SSCs or other applications that improve the fundamental knowledge about SSCs in higher primates, and may enable applications in the male infertility clinic.

“Are Dietary/Reproductive factors associated with Ovarian and Endometrial Cancer Risk?”

Ming Lei

Visiting Scholar, Linkov Lab, University of Pittsburgh, Magee-Womens Research Institute

Objective: Singapore Chinese Health study is a population-based prospective cohort study. We would like to share our results of the secondary analysis of the data, mainly focused on ovarian and endometrial cancer.

Date: Wednesday, September 11, 2019
Time: 12:00 to 1:00 PM
Location: Magee-Womens Research Institute, Conference Center, 1st Floor

For program questions, please contact Dr. Mellissa Mann @ 412-641-7950.  A light lunch will be provided.

Speaker: Yael Nechemia-Arbely, PhD
Title: Assistant Professor, Dept of Pharmacology & Chemical Biology, University of Pittsburgh, UPMC Hillman Cancer Center
Lecture Title: Guarding the genome: Maintaining epigenetically defined human centromeres through error correction

The centromere is a central genetic element responsible for accurate chromosome segregation during cell division. Functional centromeres are specified epigenetically through the stable acquisition of CENP-A, a histone H3 variant found exclusively in nucleosomes at all active centromeres. Using genome-wide approaches, we recently discovered that DNA replication serves as an error correction mechanism that restricts CENP-A to centromeres by removing it from the ectopic sites of deposition at the chromosome arms, while maintaining the positions of centromere-bound CENP-A with high precision throughout DNA replication. This error correction mechanism explains how centromere identity is epigenetically maintained and restricted to one position on the chromosome, thereby suppressing genome instability and ensuring long-term faithful chromosome inheritance.
