DNA Arrays:

Two Purposes

Genotype individuals on polymorphisms(read text for example).

Study gene expression (these slides).

Methods:Studying Gene Expression

Step 1: Create a DNA array (gene “chip”) by placing single-stranded DNA for each gene to be assayed into a separate “well” on the chip.

cDNAgene 1

cDNAgene 2

cDNAgene 3

cDNAgene 4

cDNAgene 5

DNA Array: Single-stranded copy DNA foreach gene in a different well.

Methods:Studying Gene Expression

Step 2: Extract mRNA from biological tissues subjected to an experimental treatment and from the same tissue subjected to a control treatment.

Step 3: Make single-stranded DNA from the mRNA using “color coded” nucleotides.

Extract mRNA from Control Cells

Extract mRNA from Experimental Cells

Make single-stranded cDNA using green nucleotides

Make single-stranded cDNA using red nucleotides

cDNA = complementary DNA (DNA synthesized from RNA)

Methods:Studying Gene Expression

Step 4: After making many DNA copies of the RNA, extract an equal amount of cDNA from the controls & experimentals and place it into a separate container.

Step 5: Extract a smallamount in a pipette.

Methods:

Step 6: Insert into first well.

Methods:

Step 7: Extractmore cDNA and …

… insert intosecond well, etc.

Methods:

Step 8ff: Continue until all wells arefilled.

Methods:

Step 9: Allow to hybridize, then wash away all single-stranded DNA.

Result:

Some wells have no color-coded cDNA (no mRNA in either type of cell)

Some wells have only red (i.e., expressed only in experimental cells)

Some wells have only green (i.e., expressed only in control cells)

Some wells have both red and green in various mixtures (expressedin both experimental and control cells)

Methods:

Step 10: Scan with a laser set to detect the color & process results on computer.

Mostly in

Mostly in

experimentalcells

Only in

Same inboth cells

Results:

The colors denote the degree of expression in the experimental versus the control cells.

Gene not expressed in control or in experimental cells
