Benzene-3h_BR2 Cy5 / Ctrl-3h_BR2 Cy3 : 30pmol. (Hybridization_Protocol.txt) Hybridization Protocol: CATMA slides (Corning Microarray Technology, CORNING) are pretreated in the prehybridisation solution (1 % BSA, 0.1 SDS, 5X SSC ) at 42°C for 60 min. They are dipped a couple of times in distilled water at room temperature, then in isopropanol and dried immediately by compressed nitrogen stream. Slides were placed in Corning hybridization chambers with a 25x60 lifterslip and 10ul of distilled water for each groove. The target was diluted to a final volume of 60 µL as follows 15µl of purified, labeled cDNA, 15 µl of 4X Hybridization Buffer ( 20X SDS, 0.4 % SDS), 30 µL formamide. The target mixture is heated for 3 min at 95°C, put on ice for 30 sec and centrifuged to remove dust for 1 min. The target mixture was put on the chip as quickly as possible. The microarray is sealed in a chamber and submerged in a 42°C water bath for approximately 16 h. The microarray is washed for 4 min in 1xSSC, 0.2% SDS (42°C); 4 min in 0.1x SSC, 0.2% SDS (RT); 4 min in 0.1x SSC, 0.2% SDS (RT); 4 min in 0.1x SSC (RT); dipped a few times in distilled water and dried immediately by compressed nitrogen stream.
