Experimental Protocol

Cells were lysed directly in 1 ml of TRIzol (Thermo Fisher) and stored at -80°C. Once all samples were collected, samples were thawed on ice and RNA was separated with chloroform using Phase Lock Gel tubes (5prime). RNA was isolated using the miRNeasy Mini Kit (Qiagen) according to the manufacture’s protocol. One microgram of each sample was then subject to ribosome depletion, fragmented, and library prepared using the TruSeq Stranded Total RNA Kit with Ribo Zero Gold (Illumina) according to the manufacturer’s protocol and indexed using TruSeq adapters. One hundred base pair paired-end reads were generated for each sample on the Illumina HiSeq 2500 (Case Western Reserve University Sequencing Core; Cleveland, OH). Samples include mESC derived oligodendrocyte progenitor cells (OPCs) from four different wildtype mouse strains at 0 hr, 24, hr, 48 hr, and 72 hr after treatment with thyroid hormone T3 (n = 4 biological replicates per time point). Two additional samples include mutant OPCs (shiverer and MYRF knockout 'delMYRF') at 72 hr time point.
