Experimental Protocol

We performed microarray analysis on 3 pools of sorted GPI-deficient (GPI-) and GPI normal (GPI+) bone marrow cells derived from the same Pig-a knock-out animals, and identified 1275/669 genes of the 45,101 transcripts potentially available for screening using 2-fold change, <10% false discovery rate (FDR) and percentage of present calls as selection criteria. The major representative genes belong to the category of immune response. We tested whether the molecular differences between GPI- and GPI+ bone marrow cells could be preserved when GPI- cells were transplanted in lethally-irradiated wild type mice (C57BL/6). Microarray analysis was performed using sorted bone marrow cells from 4 animals transplanted with GPI-deficient bone marrow cells (T-GPI-) from Pig-a knock-out donors, 3 animals transplanted with GPI-normal bone marrow cells from C57BL/6 donors (T-GPI+), and GPI-normal bone marrow cells from 4 wild-type C57BL/6 mice (WT-GPI+). We found 296 probesets with 2-fold change cutoff, of which T-GPI- cells had 145 up-regulated genes in comparison to WT-GPI+ cells, and had 123 genes differentially expressed when compared to T-GPI+ cells. The gene expression of the GPI-deficient cells was very similar between the two sets of microarray experiments affirming the maintenance of the phenotype before and after bone marrow cell transplantation.
