The effect of retinoic acid on the mRNA levels of ganglioside glycosyltransferases in neuroblastoma cells in vitro Experiment to determine mRNA expression for ganglioside glycosyltransferases in NB cells (untreated versus treated with ATRA) using the Glyco-gene Chip by the Consortium for Functional Glycomics. Human NB cell lines LAN-5 were incubated with 10 µM of all-trans retinoic acid or untreated as control, and total RNA harvested after 24 hours, 72 hours and 120 hours of exposure to retinoic acid. We performed three independent experiments on either cell line so that for each cell line and each time point three replicates were be obtained (total: 18 chips). Glycosyltransferases of particular interest are LacCer synthase, GlucCer synthase, GM3 synthase, GD3 synthase, GM2/GD2 synthase, GD1b/GM1a synthase, GT1b/GD1a synthase and GQ1b/GT1a synthase.
