THE INSTITUTE FOR GENOMIC RESEARCH TITLE: MICROARRAY LABELED PROBE HYBRIDIZATION SOP #: M005 REVISION LEVEL: 2 EFFECTIVE DATE: 3/4/02 AUTHOR: Jeremy Hasseman PRIMARY REVIEWERS: Emily Chen, Ivana Yang 1. PURPOSE This protocol describes the hybridization of a Cy labeled cDNA probe (mix of Cy3 and Cy5) onto coated slide spotted with PCR amplified cDNA or 70mer oligonucleotides. 2.

PROCEDURE 4.1 UV Cross-linking Slides (using Stratagene UV StratalinkerĀ® 1800) 4.1.1 Aminosilane coated slides (ArrayIt SuperAmine Substrates) spotted with cDNA in 50% DMSO are UV cross-linked at ~120 mJ. 4.1.2 Aminosilane coated slides spotted with 70mer oligos are UV cross-linked at ~450 mJ. 4.2 Prehybridizaton 4.2.1 Prepare prehybridization buffer (5X SSC, 0.1% SDS, 1% BSA) and sterilize by filtration using a CA filter. Preheat at 42oC for ~30 minutes before use. 4.2.2 Place the printed slide(s) which will be used for the hybridization in a Coplin jar containing preheated prehybridization buffer and incubate at 42oC for 45 minutes. 4.2.3 Washing Slides - Fill two Coplin jars with MilliQ water and another with isopropanol. - With forceps carefully grasp slide by the labeled end and vertically dip slide into the first Coplin jar (water) so that the slide is completely submerged. Dip slide four or five times. - Dip the slide again in the water five times but only submerging the slide enough to wash the printed array itself. - Using the same technique dip slide into the second Coplin jar (water). - Finally dip slide into the third Coplin jar (isopropanol) submerging the slide completely. Note: Replace each water wash after every five slides. 4.2.4 Drying Slides - Carefully but quickly blow dry the front of the slide with compressed air. Note: To avoid blowing debris from the forceps onto the array, first blow from where the array ends toward the forceps. Then dry the array itself by blowing down the slide away from the forceps. - Finally dry the back of the slide. - Note the general appearance of the slide. Streaking or mottling on the slide surface indicates further washing is necessary. - Repeat the water/water/isopropanol wash cycle as necessary to clean the slide. Blow dry between each cycle. Note: When working with a 70mer oligo array one can denature the spotted oligos by submerging the slide in a 95o C MilliQ water bath for 3 minutes just after prehybridization and before adding the probe. 4.2.5 Use slides immediately following prehybridization to ensure optimal hybridization efficiency. 4.3 Hybridization 4.3.1 Prepare 1X hybridization buffer (50% formamide, 5X SSC, and 0.1% SDS). Note: 70mer oligo arrays use a 1X hybridization buffer without formamide and are subsequently hybridized at 65oC. 4.3.2 Prepare Poly(A)-DNA by dissolving stock Poly(A)-DNA in a neutral buffer (i.e. 10 mM Tris, pH 7) to a final concentration of 20 ug/uL. 4.3.3 Prepare COT1-DNA (stock conc.1ug/uL) by ethanol precipitation: - Add 2 to 3 volumes of ethanol and 0.1 volumes of 3 M Sodium Acetate (NaOAc) to the stock tube. - Mix well and place on dry ice for 20-30 minutes or in -20oC freezer overnight. - Centrifuge for 20-30 minutes in a cold room microfuge at maximum angular velocity. - Remove supernatant and allow excess ethanol to dry off. - Dissolve precipitated COT1 in a neutral buffer (i.e. 10 mM Tris, pH 7) to the final concentration of 20ug/uL. 4.3.4 Resuspend labeled probe (Cy3/Cy5 probe mixture: see SOP-M004) in 24 uL of 1X hybridization buffer. Note: Expose Cy labeled probe to light as little as possible during the hybridization process. 4.3.5 To block nonspecific hybridization add: COT1-DNA (20 ug/uL) ... 1uL Poly(A)-DNA (20ug/uL) ... 1uL Note: The COT1-DNA is organism specific: add mouse COT1 to labeled mouse probes and human COT1-DNA to labeled human probes. 4.3.6 To denature, heat the probe mixture at 95oC for 3 minutes and snap cool on ice for 30 sec. 4.3.7 Centrifuge the probe mixture at maximum angular velocity for 1 minute. Keep at room temperature and use immediately. 4.3.8 To Apply Labeled Probe Mixture - Place a prehybridized microarray slide (array side up) between the guide teeth in the bottom half of a hybridization chamber. - Pipette the labeled probe mixture (~26 uL) to the slide surface near one end of the array print area keeping bubbles to a minimum. - Take a 22mm x 60mm microscope glass coverslip, dust it with compressed air, and grasp one end with forceps. - Holding the coverslip over the array print area, lower the end nearest the pool of cDNA probe until solution wicks to the surface of the coverslip. - Gradually lower the opposite end of the coverslip (held by the forceps) onto the slide. The solution may take a minute or two to wick across the entire length of the slide. - After probe has wicked across the slide carefully adjust the coverslip^s position with the tip of the forceps so that there is an even margin between the edge of the coverslip and the edge of the slide. - Work any large bubbles toward the edge by gently tapping the coverslip surface; small bubbles will absolve themselves during hybridization. 4.3.9 To the small wells at each end of the chamber add 10 uL of water (20uL total), cover, and seal the chamber. 4.3.10 Wrap the chamber in foil (light-tight) and incubate in a 42oC water bath for 16-20 hours. To ensure chamber remains level and does not float to the surface place a small weight upon it. Note: 70mer oligo arrays are hybridized without formamide and thus are placed in 65oC water bath for 16-20 hours. Note: Do not flip the hybridization chamber upside down during hybridization; this may cause the coverslip to shift from the slide and adversely affect the hybridization. 4.3.11 Prepare a low stringency wash buffer (~500mL) containing 1X SSC and 0.2% SDS and a high-stringency wash buffer (~500mL) containing 0.1X SSC and 0.2% SDS. 4.3.12 After the incubation remove foil and unseal hybridization chamber. Remove the slide from the chamber, taking care not to disturb the coverslip. 4.3.13 To remove coverslip submerge slide in a dish containing low stringency wash buffer (preheated to 42oC). With forceps shake the slide gently to loosen the coverslip. With time the coverslip will slide free of the slide surface. Note: Once the slide has been hybridized it should be exposed to light as little as possible. Therefore, all staining dishes should be covered with foil to make them light tight. 4.3.14 After the coverslip is removed place slide in a staining dish containing lower stringency wash buffer (preheated to 42oC) and agitate for 4 minutes. 4.3.15 Wash the slide in a staining dish with high stringency wash buffer by agitating for 4 minutes at room temperature. 4.3.16 Wash the slide in 0.1X SSC agitating for 4 minutes at room temperature. (alternatively one can wash twice in 0.1X SSC agitating for 2.5 minutes to minimize SDS carryover.) 4.3.17 Finally dip the slide in a Coplin jar filled with water several times and blow dry using the same technique as step 4.1.4. 4.3.18 Place slides in a light tight slide box until they can be scanned, preferably as soon as possible.
