Experimental Protocol

Sequences for shRNA were designed to target 3 untranslated region of genes (Supplementary Table S8). Gene expression change was checked with real time qPCR (Supplementary Figure S7) and Westerm blot. ES cells (ES[MC1R(20)], passage 20) were cultured without feeders and were co-transfected with 1.6 g of shRNA expression vector and 0.4 g of pPyCAG-EGFP-IP carrying expression cassettes for puromycin resistant genes and EGFP using Effectene (Qiagen). Transfected cells were cultured in presence of 1.5 g/ml of puromycin and were harvested at 72 h after transfection. Mock cells were treated with transfection reagent without DNA and cultured in the absence of puromycin. Experiments were done in 3 replications with 2 of them used for gene expression profiling with microarrays. Total RNA was isolated by TRIzol (Invitrogen) after 2 days. Cy3-CTP labeled sample targets were prepared with total RNA by Low RNA Input Fluorescent Linear Amplification Kit (Agilent). Cy5-CTP labeled reference target was Stratagene Universal Mouse Reference RNA. Note that the processed data in the paper, which is also attached as GSE26520_Table_data.txt.gz, is slightly different from the values columns in each sample. The original processed data are normalized with a batch method, as the new batches of arrays added in the set. The value columns in this submission reflect full normalization as described in the data processing fields in each sample.
