MEFs expressing EWS/ WT1- KTS or EWS/ WT1+KTS have distinct expression profiles and EWS/ WT1+KTS expression is associated with up - regulation of canonical Wnt pathway signaling. (A) Heat map of differentially expressed probes identified in primary MEFs expressing EWS/WT1 + KTS, eGFP controls and EWS/WT1-KTS. The comparison is of four independently generated pools of MEFs each infected with EWS/WT1 + KTS, EWS/WT1-KTS or GFP. (B) GSEA plot depicting enrichment of the KIM_WT1_TARGETS_UP gene set in lines expressing EWS/WT1-KTS compared to eGFP controls. (C) Wnt related gene sets enriched in EWS/WT1 + KTS expressing cells (left) and GSEA plot of PID_WNT_Signaling_Pathway geneset (right). (D) Immunocytochemistry of 293 T cells infected with doxycycline repressible eGFP, EWS/WT1-KTS or EWS/WT1 + KTS. Cells are shown in the absence of doxycyline (panel on top and also with the presence of doxycycline treatment (thus doxycycline repressed) for 48 hours (panel on bottom). Cells are stained with DAPI for nuclear staining (blue) and β-catenin antibody with secondary anti-goat Alexa Fluor (red). β-catenin translocation from the cellular membrane to the nucleus is a marker of canonical Wnt-pathway activation.
