E-GEOD-41453 - Gene expression in the kidneys of two spontaneously hypertensive rat strains at 3 and 6 weeks of age
Released on 3 July 2015, last updated on 19 August 2015
We examined gene expression profiles in the rat kidneys using genome-wide microarray technology, and determined gene expression profiles in 3 rat strains: normotensive WKY, spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR), and stroke-prone SHR (SHRSP). To identify candidate genes involved in the genesis of hypertension in the SHR strains, we compared the gene expression levels at 3 and 6 weeks of age, isolated 407 genes showing a more than 4-fold increase or a less than 1/4-fold decrease. The rat kidneys derived from normotensive WKY, spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR), and stroke-prone SHR (SHRSP) were examined. Each strain was run in triplicate.
