Sample GSM242869 Query DataSets for GSM242869
Status Public on Nov 11, 2008
Title L1 vs L2_3M
Sample type RNA
 
Channel 1
Source name L1 of a shoot apical meristem (SAM). L1 is a single cell layered tunica, which will become epidermal cell layers of the matured plant.
Organism Zea mays
Characteristics Inbred line: B73
Developmental stage: Vegetative SAMs from 14-day old seedlings
Sample name: L1_3
Growth protocol Maize (Zea mays inbred line B73) kernels were planted ~2 cm deep in plastic pots (8.5 cm x 8.5 cm wide at the top and 7.5 cm deep) filled with SB 300 Universal (Sun Gro Horticulture). Pots were placed in an environmental control room (PGW-40, Percival Scientific). The light intensity at the growth medium surface was kept between 760 to 810 mol/m2s as measured with a quantum meter (Model QMSW, Apogee Instruments). Temperature and light cycles were set at 25C with 15-hour light conditions and at 20C with 9-hour dark conditions. Pots were watered with a solution containing 0.7 mM calcium nitrate. Tissue blocks including SAMs (3 mm x 2 mm x 1 mm) were harvested from 14-day-old seedlings and processed to prepare paraffin sections. This protocol is also available at our project web site:

Extracted molecule total RNA
Extraction protocol PicoPure RNA Isolation Kit (Arcturus/Molecular Devices) was used to extract total RNA from LCM-collected L1 and L2 cells of maize SAMs according to the manual. The RNA samples were treated with RNase-free DNase I (Stratagene) on column using the DNase Incubation Buffer provided with PALM RNA ExtractionKit (P.A.L.M. Microlaser Technologies) according to the manual of PicoPure RNA Isolation Kit. Approximately 1 ng of Dnase I-treated total RNA from each sample was then amplified with RiboAmp HS RNA Amplification Kit (Arcturus/Molecular Devices).
Label Cy3
Label protocol Five to ten micrograms of amplified RNA (within each replication the same amount of amplified RNA was used for both L1 and L2) was labeled with Cy3 or Cy5 according to Nakazono et al. (2003, Plant Cell 15: 583-596) with slight modifications. Details of fluorescent target synthesis are available at our project website (http://maize-meristems.plantgenomics.iastate.edu/resources/protocols/). To remove dye-specific effects in the statistical analyses, Cy dyes were swapped between the RNA samples with odd and even numbers of the replications.
 
Channel 2
Source name L2 of a SAM. L2 is a corpus, which will become internal part the matured plant.
Organism Zea mays
Characteristics Inbred line: B73
Developmental stage: 14-day old seedlings
Sample name: L2_3
Growth protocol Maize (Zea mays inbred line B73) kernels were planted ~2 cm deep in plastic pots (8.5 cm x 8.5 cm wide at the top and 7.5 cm deep) filled with SB 300 Universal (Sun Gro Horticulture).

Hybridization protocol Microarray slides were prehybridized in 5X SSC (1X SSC is 0.15 M NaCl and 0.015 M sodium citrate), 0.1% SDS, and 0.1 mg/ml bovine serum albumin at 42oC for 45 min, then rinsed with autoclaved, Millipore water, dipped in isopropanol, and dried by centrifugation. Each target was resuspended in 30 l hybridization solution (5X SSC, 0.1% SDS, 0.2 g/l of yeast tRNA, 0.2 g/l of polyadenylic acid, 25% super-pure (99.5%) formamide (Fisher Scientific). Targets hybridized to the same slide were mixed, heated at 95oC for 3 min, collected by centrifugation, applied to a prehybridized microarray slide and covered with a 24 x 60 mm LiferSlip (Erie Scientific Company). Ten microliters of 3X SSC were added to each of the two slots of the hybridization chamber (TeleChem). The array was then sealed, submerged in a 42oC water bath and incubated for 12 to 18 h. Subsequently, each array was washed in 1X SSC and 0.2% SDS for two minutes, 0.1X SSC and 0.2% SDS for two minutes, and 0.1X SSC for two minutes, followed by a quick rinse in autoclaved, Millipore water. Arrays were then dried via centrifugation. This protocol is also available at our project web site:
http://maize-meristems.plantgenomics.iastate.edu/resources/protocols/
Scan protocol Fluorescence of Cy3 and Cy5 on slides was detected at 10-micron resolution with a ScanArray 5000 (Packard). The following setting was used as initial laser power and PMT gain, respectively: 82 and 63 for Cy3 and 77 and 58 for Cy5. These values were slightly adjusted depending on slides to have enough signals for the lowest scans and to have approximately the same amounts of signals between the two channels for the majority of the spots. For each successive scan, laser power and PMT gain were increased by two to three units and three to four units, respectively. Each slide was scanned seven times. Subsequently, three scans for each slide (“low/L”, “medium/M” and “high/H”) were selected for statistical analyses. In details “L” means Low laser power and PMT, “M” means Medium laser power and PMT and “H” means High laser power and PMT.
Description RNA was isolated from LCM-collected L1 and L2 cells that were derived from five to ten SAMs to generate one biological replication. PicoPure RNA Isolation Kit (Arcturus/Molecular Devices) was used for RNA isolation as per manufacturer’s instruction. In total, six biological replications were used for each microarray platform (see below). Approximately 1 ng of total RNA from each of the L1 and L2 RNA samples was used as starting material for RNA amplification. RiboAmp HS RNA Amplification Kit (Arcturus/Molecular Devices) was used as per manufacturer’s instruction. Each RNA sample yielded 30 to 90 g of amplified RNA (aRNA). Five to ten micrograms of each aRNA sample (the same amount of aRNA was used within each replication) were indirectly labeled with Cy dye and hybridized to the GPL2557, GPL2572, and GPL3538 sample platforms.
Data processing Spots were removed for bad PCR and empty on the microarrays. All data were background corrected and then an R implementation of the lowess normalization method (Dudoit and Fridlyand, 2002, Genome Biol: 3 RESEARCH0036) was used to normalize the two channels for each combination of slide and scan intensity. The data were centered around 0 for each slide. Subsequently, the data from each scan was used to conduct a mixed linear model analysis separately for each of 44,654 spots using a strategy similar to that of Wolfinger et al. (2001, J Comput Biol 8: 625-637). Following the statistical analysis, an additional 6,608 spots were removed from the data set because of concerns regarding the quality of the associated DNA sequences; 384 control spots that contained exogenous DNA were also removed. As a result, this study reports the gene expression patterns of 37,662 “informative” spots.
