PMID: 28859241
DOI: 10.1111/cas.13390

[…] using sds software v1.3.1 (life technologies). threshold and baseline settings were set according to protocol recommendations., ish was carried out on 5‐μm‐thick sections of ffpe samples using the ribomap kit (ventana medical systems, tucson, az, usa) on the discovery ultra automated ish instrument (ventana medical systems). probes were 5′ dig‐labelled ish lnas (mircury‐lna detection probes; […]

PMCID: 5547506
PMID: 28784160
DOI: 10.1186/s13059-017-1278-z

[…] dried for 30 minutes, post-fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde for 10 minutes, and quenched with 0.6% h2o2 in methanol for 20 minutes. slides were then processed using the ventana discovery xt with the ribomap kit. the pretreatment was performed with mild heating in cc2 for 12 minutes, followed by protease3 (ventana, roche) for 20 minutes at room temperature. finally, the sections were hybridized […]

PMCID: 5351655
PMID: 28035057
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.14244

[…] probes for human lncrna gas5 fl (ggtatgacaggaactgtcttcatgtcc) and lncrna gas5 c2 (cgactctccatacccaagcaagtc) were used for rna–fish. in situ hybridization was performed on a ventana machine using ribomap in situ hybridization kit (ventana medical systems, inc.). the cell suspension was diluted to 10,000 cells/100 μl and plated on autoclaved glass slides. the next day, slides were washed […]

DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkw1190

[…] tools were developed for differential gene expression analysis (anota (), babel (), ribodiff (), xtail ()), and for the prediction of translated orfs (ribotaper (), orf-rator () and ribohmm ()). ribomap () estimates footprint origins in the presence of multiple splice isoforms and repetitive regions and rfoot () uses riboseq data to predict non-ribosome protected rna sites. additional […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0126058

[…] slides and loaded onto the discovery automated slide-processing system (ventana medical systems, inc). baking and deparaffinization steps were performed as programmed in the protocol for the ribomap in situ hybridization reagent system (ventana medical systems, inc) on the instrument. in situ hybridization protocol was designed based on the standard protocol described […]
