Experimental Protocol

Fresh-frozen human breast samples were retrieved from the Tumor Tissue Biobank of the Medical and Research Center - Hospital A. C. Camargo, São Paulo. This research was approved by Ethic Committee of the Medical and Research Center - Hospital A. C. Camargo under number 587/04 and a written informed consent signed by all participants. All patients had presented at least 5 years of follow-up. Thirty samples were evaluated, 4 non-neoplastic breast samples (MN), 5 pure DCIS (stage 0; DCIS-0), 11 DCIS with co-existing IDC (DCIS) and 10 IDC. The non-neoplastic samples were obtained from perilesional mammary specimens from patients submitted to resection of benign lesions. All cells types were laser capture microdissected using PixCell II LCM system (Arcturus Engineering, Mountain View, CA). The total RNA was extracted by using the PicoPureä RNA Isolation kit (Arcturus Engineering # KT0204). A two-round linear amplification procedure based on T7-driven amplification was carried out. Amplified RNA was then used in a transcriptase reverse reaction into cDNA in the presence of Cy3- or Cy5-labeled dCTP. HB4a normal luminal epithelial mammary cell line (O’Hare et al 1991) was amplified following the same protocol and used as reference for microarray hybridizations. Dye swap was performed for each sample analyzed and used as replicate samples. For the raw_data (lowess_data), see Web Link below.
