Experimental Protocol

The microarray experiment was performed to analyze time-course of drug-induced transcriptional response in C57BL/6J mouse striatum. Three antidepressants (bupropion 20 mg/kg, tranylcypromine 20 mg/kg, mianserin 20 mg/kg, i.p.), three anxiolytics (diazepam 5 mg/kg, buspirone 10 mg/kg, hydroxyzine 10 mg/kg, i.p.), and three antipsychotics (clozapine 3 mg/kg, risperidone 0.5 mg/kg, haloperidol 1 mg/kg) were selected for the comparison. Drug doses were previously reported as effective in mice and further tested in our laboratory. To analyze dynamics of early, intermediate and relatively late changes of mRNA abundance the experiment was performed in four time points (1, 2, 4 and 8h after drug administration). To exclude influence of drug injection and circadian rhythm on gene expression profile, control groups of saline or tween (1% Tween 80) treated and naïve animals were prepared for each time point. Design of the experiment assumed pooling of two animals per each array and using of three independent arrays per group. To provide appropriate balance in the whole dataset groups were equally divided between the array hybridization batches.
