E-GEOD-6236 - Transcription profiling of human circulating blood reticulocytes from adult and cord blood to provide a robust description of genes transcribed at the final stages of erythroblast maturation
Released on 1 November 2007, last updated on 27 March 2012
RNA from circulating blood reticulocytes was utilized to provide a robust description of genes transcribed at the final stages of erythroblast maturation. After depletion of leukocytes and platelets, Affymetrix HG-U133 arrays were hybridized with probe from total RNA isolated from blood sampled from 14 umbilical cords and 14 healthy adult humans. Experiment Overall Design: Peripheral blood from 14 normal adult and 14 human umbilical cord were purified to obtain packed red blood cells and their purity was assessed by CELL-DYN4000. The contaminated WBC count was less than 1 out of 1 million cells. Total RNA from purified reticulocytes included in the purified red blood cells was extracted, labeled, and hybridized onto Affymetrix HG-U133 A and B arrays.
