Experimental Protocol

We determined the RNA profile of COUP-TFII knockdown β-cells (832/13 INS-1 cells transfected with COUP-TFII specific siRNA) with respect to control cells (832/13 INS-1 cells transfected with scrambled siRNA) using Affymetrix expression analysis technical manual 701025Rev.5 (Affymetrix, Santa Clara, California, USA). Briefly, 1 mg of total cellular mRNA was reverse transcribed into cDNA (SuperScript Choice System Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA) using oligo-dT primers and a T7 RNA polymerase promoter site. The cDNA was in vitro transcribed and biotin-labeled for microarray analysis using the Affymetrix IVT labeling kit. The concentration of labelled cRNA was measured using a NanoDrop ND-1000 spectrophotometer. Labeled cRNA was fragmented in a fragmentation buffer for 35 min at 94°C. The quality of labeled and fragmented cRNA was analyzed using the Agilent bioanalyzer 2100 (Van Lommel et al, 2006). Fragmented cRNA was hybridized to the rat 230 2.0 array (Affymetrix) during 16h at 45°C. Arrays were washed and stained in a fluidics station (Affymetrix) and scanned using the Affymetrix 3000 GeneScanner.
