Gene expression profiles of the adult visceral epithelium (syn: podocyte layer). (GUDMAP Series_id: 31)

ABSTRACT: The long term objective is to create an encyclopedia of the expression levels of all genes in multiple components of the developing kidney. The central thesis is straightforward. The combination of fluorescent activated cell sorting (FACS) plus microarray analysis offers a powerful, efficient and effective method for the creation of a global gene expression atlas of the developing kidney. Microarrays with essentially complete genome coverage can be used to quantitate expression levels of every gene in FACS isolated components of the developing kidney. The ensuing rapid read-out provides an expression atlas that is more sensitive, more economical and more complete than would be possible by in situ hybridizations alone. Mafb-EGFP BAC transgenic mice were utilized to isolate the podocyte cells from the glomerlus from adult kidneys. The podocyte cells were isolated from the kidney using a combination of Collagenase A digestion, sieving and tyrpsinization. RNA was isolated and the gene expression profiles were determined by microarrays.
