Experimental Protocol

Mid-log phase cultures of H. salinarum NRC-1 (2 biological replicates) grown in flasks were treated with either sub-lethal concentrations of 25mM H2O2 or 4mM PQ and incubated with shaking for up to 240 min. For each treatment, two time courses were run to determine the transcriptional responses to (1) constant stress and (2) recovery of H. salinarum NRC-1 to H2O2 and PQ. During constant stress, culture aliquots (~4ml) were collected over a time course (-1, 5, 10, 20, 40, 80 and 160 minutes), centrifuged (16000g, 90 seconds) and flash frozen. For recovery, cells were first treated for 2-hours with either 25 mM H2O2 or 4mM PQ, recovered by centrifugation, washed and re-suspended in CM. Cultures were returned to the incubator with shaking and samples were taken at 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 120, and 240 minutes and processed as described previously. Analysis of temporal transcriptional changes (-1, 0, 5, 10, 20, 40, 80, 160 and 320m) to sub-inhibitory concentrations of PQ (0.25mM) was also characterized. Total RNA was prepared and labeled with Alexa547 and Alexa647 dyes. Intensities were normalized between the Alexa 546 and Alexa 647 channels by scaling all intensities in one channel such that the 75th percentile in each channel was made equal.
