E-MTAB-1779 - Transcription profiling by RT-PCR of lymphocytes from individuals exposed to styrene and unexposed controls to identify a panel of genes involved in styrene exposure
Released on 23 September 2013, last updated on 25 September 2013
Whole blood was collected for styrene-exposed and control workers subjects in a fiberglass boat industry. Total RNA was extracted from blood lymphocytes, and cDNA was synthesized for profiling on the Human Stress and Toxicity PathwayFinder(tm) RT2 Profiler(tm) PCR Expression Array (PAHS-003, SABiosciences).
