E-SMDB-2373 - Transcription profiling of parasites grown as either tachyzoites or bradyzoites for 40 hours pulsed with 2,4-dithiouracil (DTU) for 1 hour

Parasites grown as either tachyzoites or bradyzoites for 40 hours were pulsed with 2,4-dithiouracil (DTU) for 1 hour. Following the pulse, mRNA was extracted and either used directly in microarray experiments (Abundance Arrays) or biotinylated and purified to select DTU labeled RNAs that were then used in microarray experiments (Synthesis Arrays). Two independent tachyzoite and bradyzoite preparations were made and duplicate microarrays were performed for each sample.
