E-MTAB-9869 - RNA-seq of mouse brain tissue to investigate the integrity of the blood brain barrier to trimethylamine N-oxide
Last updated on 9 December 2020, released on 19 December 2020
In vivo work done to determine how trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) affects integrity of the blood-brain barrier. Wild-type male C57Bl/6 mice were injected with saline or TMAO (1.8 mg/kg in saline), and killed 2 h after injection. Mice were transcardially perfused with 0.9% saline at 4 °C to remove circulating blood, and brains were removed and collected into RNAlater. Whole brain total RNA was extracted using a PureLink RNA Mini Kit. RNA samples (n=3 TMAO, n=3 control) were sent to Macrogen Inc. (Republic of Korea) where they were subject to quality checks (RIN analysis), library prep and sequencing [TruSeq Stranded mRNA LT Sample Prep Kit; paired-end (2x 100 nt) sequencing; Illumina HiSeq 4000].
