E-GEOD-9162 - Major differences in gene expression profiles revealed in day-25 trophoblast but not embryonic discs from cattle clones
Released on 13 January 2012, last updated on 2 May 2014
To better understand the problems associated with cloning, gene expression profiling of AI- and SCNT-derived bovine (day 25 of pregnancy) fetuses was performed. The embryonic disc and the extraembryonic tissues for each fetus were analyzed separately using a bovine oligoarray. Clustering of all the expression profiles showed clustering by tissue, but no separation of AI vs. SCNT samples was observed. Statistical analysis using a mixed model revealed 188 differentially expressed genes between the extraembryonic tissues and 10 differentially expressed genes between the embryonic discs of AI- and SCNT-derived fetuses. Between the tissue types >9,000 genes showed differential expression, of which 2,127 that showed >=2-fold difference in expression. The data generated in the current experiment clearly shows that the main problem with SCNT pregnancies is related to abnormal gene expression in the extraembryonic tissues.
