To purify mature olfactory neurons we took advantage of the OMP-GFP mice. OMP(olfactory marker protein) is expressed specifically in mature olfactory and vomeronasal sensory neurons. In the OMP-GFP mice the coding region of OMP is replaced by GFP. We purified OSNs from the rest of the epithelium from these mice by using FACS. . We used the Affymetrix gene chips mouse expression set 430 (consisting of 430A and 430B chips). Our gene chip data is extensively validated by insitu hybridizations.
