Experimental Protocol

We designed a cDNA microarray that consisted of five subarrays to cover all of the cDNA species in our library. We generated two of the sub-arrays, each with 1,152 clones spotted in duplicate, giving 2,304 spots per sub-array. A common set of 96 clones, consisting of positive and negative control sequences, was spotted on each sub-array. Each cloned cDNA insert was amplified by PCR and spotted on nylon membranes using an Affymetrix 417 Arrayer according to protocols supplied by Dr. Kevin Becker (Tanaka et al., 2000; Barrett et al., 2001). Arrays were hybridized against 33P-labeled cDNA produced by oligo-dT priming of reverse transcription using the RadPrime DNA labeling kit (Invitrogen). Hybridization was done in quadruplicate at 50˚C in 50 ml tubes in a hybridization oven as described in Barrett et al. (2001).
