34k expression arrays were generated by printing Oligo nucleotides from three different sets (MWG, Compugen and Operon) onto epoxy slides. Total RNA from Kaede protein-injected and FAM-P treated zebrafish embryos was amplified using an Ambion kit (Cat#1753), labeled with Cy dyes and hybridized overnight to the oligo chip in a MAUI chamber. The experiment comparing mesendoderm was performed four times (twice with WIK/AB hybrid strain embryos, once with EK strain embryos and once with AB strain embryos) each time including a dye swap, for a total of eight (four forward and four dye-swap) hybridizations. Three control cRNA probes were also generated from AB-strain embryos, namely: (1) whole 40% epiboly stage embryos, (2) FACS-sorted green cells from dissociated 40% epiboly embryos that were Kaede-injected but NOT photolabeled and (3) FACS-sorted red cells from dissociated 40% epiboly embryos that were Kaede-injected AND photolabeled. These probes were each generated three times, each time including a dye swap and co-hybridized as follows: (1) whole embryo cRNA vs green cell cRNA (three forward and three dye-swap hybridiizations) and (2) green cell cRNA vs. red cell cRNA (three forward and three dye-swap hybridizations).
