Brain samples from zebrafish, Danio rerio were collected after experimental manipulations generated 4 phenotypes regarding social experience: mirror fighters (M), winners of a real opponent fight (W), losers of a real opponent fight (L); and socially isolated fish (I). After 30 minutes of experimental manipulation animals were anesthetized with a lethal dose of MS-222 (1000-1500 mg/l) and decapitated. Brains were rapidly collected, homogenized and RNA extracted following standard methods of RNeasy Lipid Tissue Mini Kit, Qiagen. RNA was then treated with DNase (RNase-free DNase set, Qiagen) to remove possible contaminations with genomic DNA and concentration and purity was estimated by spectrophotometric absorbance in a NanoDrop ND-1000 UV-Vis Spectrophotometer (Nano-Drop Technologies).
