E-GEOD-48997 - Expression data in wt or mutant Drosophila melanogaster embryos
Released on 20 July 2013, last updated on 15 July 2015
Terminal differentiation of epidermal cells in Drosophila embryos requires the activity of a transcription factor. Svb is necessary and sufficient to induce this process. pri is a regulator of Svb activity, converting it from a repressor into an activator. To characterize the downstream Svb and pri effectors in cell morphogenesis, we performed microarrays in wt, svb -/- (no gene) and pri -/- (svb repressor) mutant conditions. Embryos were selected at a precise 13-15h (after egg laying) stage of development, and manually genotyped for each condition: wt (W samples), svb -/- (R samples) and pri -/- (P samples). 5 independent replicates of 200 embryos are used for each condition. RNA were extracted and hybridized on Affymetrix microarrays.
