Transcription profiling of mouse aorta (whole or regions) from mice of different embryonic ages

ABSTRACT: In order to identify novel regulators of haematopoietic stem cell emergence in the mouse embryonic AGM region, 3 different types of gene expression comparisons were performed. In the first one, whole dorsal aortas from embryonic day (E) 11 embryos and E9 embryos were dissected, tissues from each time point were pooled and their expression profile compared (whole aorta (WA) E9 vs E11). 3 different pools/biological replicas were obtained for each time point, a dye swap was included in each experiment, a technical replicate was performed for each pool (including the dye swap) and 2 self-self hybridisation controls were included. In the second comparison, GFP+ cells were isolated by fluorescence-activated cell sorting from pooled E9 and E11 aortas from transgenic embryos that express GFP under the regulatory elements of the Ly-6A gene. We obtained one pool for each time point and compared their transcription profile (GFP E9 vs E11). This comparison also contained a dye swap and a technical replicate (also of the dye swap). In the third comparison, the E11 aorta was cut into 3 roughly equal parts. Pools were obtained of the middle region ("m") and the two outer regions, rostral and caudal, together ("r+c") and their expression profile compared (11AO m vs r+c). There was one pool of each population, and the experiment included a dye swap and a technical replicate (also of the dye swap) and one self-self hybridisation control. Isolated RNA was amplified by T7-mediated in vitro transcription, with one round for the first and the third comparison and two rounds for the second comparison (sorted GFP+ cells). Probes were labelled during the reverse transcription step. Within array normalisation was achieved with Lowess Smooth and between arrays with Z scores. ANOVA analysis identified differentially expressed genes and K means clustering was used to segregate them into upregulated and downregulated genes.

The first adult-repopulating hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are detected starting at day 10.5 of gestation in the aorta-gonads-mesonephros (AGM) region of the mouse embryo. Despite the importance of the AGM in initiating HSC production, very little is currently known about the regulators that control HSC emergence in this region. We have therefore further defined the location of HSCs in the AGM and incorporated this information into a spatial and temporal comparative gene expression analysis of  ...[more]
