E-GEOD-13526 - Transcription profiling of mouse WT and Nxf2 KO post-natal day 21 testes
Released on 14 November 2009, last updated on 1 May 2014
In euakryotes, mRNAs must be exported from the nucleus to the cytsoplasm. NXF2 is highly expressed in the mouse male germ cells. We are interested in its function in spermatogenesis, espically in the nuclear RNA export in the testis. To this end, we made Nxf2 mutant mice by gene targeting. In an attempt to identify the mRNA substrates of NXF2, we perform the microarray experiments on testes. We used microarrays to check the expression profiles of the Nxf2 WT and KO 21d testes on C57BL/6 background. Experiment Overall Design: To examine the expression difference between WT and Nxf2 KO testes, we collected testes from juvenile mice of three ages ( 21d, 26d, 28d). Testis weight was similar between WT and KO mice at post-natal day 21. Three pairs of WT and KO 21d testes were chosen for microarray analysis.
