E-GEOD-7852 - Transcription profiling of mouse fat derived flow sorted Treg cells
Submitted on 18 May 2007, released on 7 August 2009, last updated on 2 May 2014
Comparisons of global gene-expression profiles revealed a greater distinction between CD4+ Treg cells and CD4+ conventional (Tconv) T cells residing in abdominal (epidydimal) fat versus in more standard locations such as the spleen, thymus and LN. Experiment Overall Design: All gene expression profiles were obtained from highly purified T cell populations sorted by flow cytometry. To reduce variability, cells from multiple mice were pooled for sorting, and three replicates were generated for all groups. RNA from 3-5 x 104 cells was amplified, labeled, and hybridized to Affymetrix M430v2 microarrays. Raw data were preprocessed with the RMA algorithm in GenePattern, and averaged expression values were used for analysis.
