We used ZHBTc4 ES cells with a Tet-inducible Oct4 transgene. Cells were cultured for 2 passages on gelatin-coated plates in order to remove feeder cells and then transferred to gelatin-coated 6-well plates at the density of 1-2x105 cells/well and cultured in complete ES medium. Tetrocycline (TC) was added at 24 hr after cell plating, and then cells were harvested at 0hr (before adding TC), 3 hr, 6 hr, 12 hr, and 24 hr (2 replications each). RNA samples for later time points (24, 48, 72, 96, and 120 hr) were obtained from our earlier experiment with 3 replications. Two Nanog over-expressing clones were tested: (1) integrated transgene in MG1.19 parental cell line and (2) episomal transgene in EBRTcH3 parental line. EBRTcH3 and MG1.19 ESC lines were kind gifts of Dr. Hitoshi Niwa (RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology, Kobe, Japan). Both transgenic and parental cell lines were cultured for 2 passages on gelatin-coated plates and then transferred to gelatin-coated 6-well plates at the density of 1-2x105 cells/well and cultured for 3 days in 3 different conditions: (1) complete ES medium (see above); (2) complete medium without LIF, and (3) complete medium with 1 uM RA. Cells were cultured at 37 0C and 5% CO2 condition and the culture medium was changed daily. Over-expression of Nanog was evaluated by PCR. Total RNAs were extracted using TrizolTM (Invitrogen, USA) and Phase lock gelTM columns (Eppendorf/Brinkman) according to the manufacturer???s protocol. Total RNAs were precipitated with isopropanol, washed with 70% ethanol, and dissolved in DEPC-treated H2O. 2.5 ug of total RNA samples were labeled with Cy3-CTP using a Low RNA Input Fluorescent Linear Amplification Kit (Agilent, USA). A reference target (Cy5-CTP-labeled) was prepared from the Universal Mouse Reference (UMR) RNA (Stratagene, USA).
