Sorted cells were lysed were lysed in RLT buffer (Qiagen) and further processed on Qiagen Rneasy Micro columns including DNAse treatment (Parameters: Extracted product = total_RNA, Amplification = none)
GVHD was induced in recipients, using a haploidentical P into F1 murine transplantation model. Some recipients were injected i.p. peritransplantally with 5mg/kg/day Fgf7 for 7 days. Control group received HBSS. Recipient's thymi were dissected, digested with Collagenase/Dispase/Dnase and thymic epithelial cells were sorted by FACS.
