In order to investigate differences in gene expression patterns of B. breve UCC2003 when grown on cellobiose or cellodextrins as compared to growth on glucose, DNA microarray experiments were performed. Total RNA was isolated from B. breve UCC2003 cultures grown on cellobiose, cellodextrins, or glucose (see Materials and Methods). The cultures were harvested at the time points that ensured that B. breve UCC2003 was metabolizing cellobiose or cellodextrins as opposed to the residual glucose present in the cellodextrin preparation. Analysis of the DNA microarray data was obtained from two independent biological replicates.
