E-MAXD-24 - Transcription profiling of major osmoregulatory tissues of Anguilla anguilla in response to the sea water environment
Released on 19 April 2008, last updated on 2 May 2014
The aim of this study was to use a microarray approach to screen the major osmoregulatory tissues of the eel for changes in gene expression as fish acclimate to the SW environment. The other species (few clones) were used to validate the specificity of arrays hybridizations : Of the 6144 clones spotted, 96 contained control cDNAs comprising either known eel genes implicated in osmoregulation and previously studied in our laboratory or coding regions of genes sequenced from other species (ie. Aspergillus nidulans, Arabidopsis thaliana, Pleuronectes flesus, Carcharhinus leucas, Scyliorhinus canicula, Squalus acanthias and Salmo salar). The labelled cDNA probes derived from the eel RNAs hybridised only with the spotted cDNAs from the eel clones indicating the stringency and probe specificities of the hybridisation conditions were appropriate.
