Total RNA Isolation

The protocol provided has been extensively tested on a variety of animal-derived material and is more likely to work on a nonstandard object than other methods and commercially available kits (see Note 3). Still, RNAqueous kit from Ambion seems to approach this protocol in terms of versatility, so it can be used instead in most cases, even for microscopic samples. 1. Dissolve the tissue sample in buffer D (see Note 4). 2. Spin the sample at maximum speed on table microcentrifuge for 5 min at...

Problem for two-base anchored primers ending with the 3' T, and reduces the number of reverse transcription reactions from 12 to 3 per RNA sample. 2. It has been observed that the 35S-labeled nucleotide originally used for DD would leak through PCR reaction tubes (especially when thin-walled tubes are used) and 33P labeled nucleotide was recommended as the best alternative (9). 33P is not only safer to use, but also gives better sensitivity as compared to 35S. 3. For the RT reaction, the...

Purification and Reamplification of cDNA Bands From FDD

Soak the gel slice (see Subheading 3.4., step 8 ) in 1 mL dH2O for 30 min mixing gently by finger-tipping. 2. Remove the water without taking the gel slice, and again add new 200 pL dH2O. Boil the tube with tightly closed cap for 15 min to elute the DNA template from gel. Spin for 2 min to collect condensation and pellet the gel. Transfer the supernatant to a new tube, and keep as cDNA template for reamplification reaction. The tube with the gel slice must be also saved for the reamplification...

Ling Qin Pjotr Prins and Johannes Helder

Massive amounts of DNA sequence data, generated from expressed sequence tag (EST) and genome sequencing projects, require efficient methods to link sequence databases with temporal and spatial expression profiles. To meet this need, we have developed a powerful computer program (GenEST), which links cDNA sequence data (including EST sequences) with transcript profiles revealed by cDNA-amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP). cDNA-AFLP is a highly reproducible differential display method...

Lcr I

Vertical array detection of differential regulation in response to the addition of serum to serum-starved fibroblasts. The top row shows an LCR in which a sequence homologous to AA42873 is absent the (red) fluorescent signal is from the positive hybridization control. The bottom row shows hybridization at t 0 and t 20 min (violet), but not at 4 h using an LCR in which the transcript is sampled. Fig. 1. Vertical array detection of differential regulation in response to the addition of...

Isolation of Total Cellular RNA

Prokaryotic mRNAs are short-lived, with a half-life on the order of minutes in fast-growing species. The procedures for RNA extraction must, thus, be very rapid. Techniques of cell disruption based on a lysozyme treatment to digest bacterial cell walls are too slow (tens of minutes to hours) and lead to highly degraded mRNA. The protocol for the isolation of total cellular RNA uses a physical disruption of bacterial cells with zirconia beads in a bead beater in the presence of the denaturing...

Fluorescent Differential Display

The RNAspectra Red Kit can be used for this step as well as the aforementioned RT reactions (see also Notes 1-3). This step can be automated with a robotic liquid handling workstation such as BioMek 2000, which can greatly increase throughput and accuracy. 1. Set up on ice (in dim light) a 20 pL PCR reaction in thin-walled reaction tubes. For each primer set combination, use the following formula dH2O 4.2 pL, 10X PCR buffer 2 pL, dNTP Mix (2.5 mM) 1.6 pL, H-AP-primer (2 pM) 8 pL, R-H-T11V (2...

GenEST uses the begin tag to search for the tag sequence in the cDNA data, which are contained in the input files in FASTA format. If such a tag is found, it will continue its search for a matching end tag. This search action is executed in both directions for all begin end tag combinations. 9. To execute the search, type in a DOS window C genest gt ruby src genest -c NTtag.txt -o TDFout.txt EST.txt -o TDFout.txt - indicates the output file, which will contain a list of the found virtual...
