Name: Stanley Frontal S/B pool 1 Library ID: 1251 Organism: Homo sapiens Gender: male Age: 0 Stage: adult Organ: brain/CNS Tissue: frontal cortex pool: S-121 (schizophrenic 32 yo male), S-30 (schizophrenic 30 yo male), S-75 (bipolar 34 yo male), S-83 (bipolar 48 yo male) Host: GeneHogs DH10B Vector: pCR2.1-TOPO Vector type: plasmid Insert digest: EcoRI Stop Codon Status: without Description: Total RNA (purified with Trizol and DNAsed before use) was reverse transcribed using a modified oligo-dT primer containing RsaI and HindIII sites. Double- stranded cDNA was digested with RsaI, resulting in blunt ended cDNA of an average 0.1-2 kb in length. Digested cDNA was split into two sets, one used as is as the driver, the other set was split in half again and each half linked to a different adaptor (5'-TCGAGCGGCCGCCCGGGCAGGT-3' or 5'- AGGGCGTGGTGCGGAGGGCGGT-3'), to be used as tester. Subtraction was performed using the Clontech PCR Select cDNA subtraction kit. Pool of two male schizophrenics, ages 30 and 32 (S-30, S-121) subtracted by pool of two male bipolars, age 34 and 48 (S-75, S-83). Tissues were obtained from the Stanley Neuropathology Consortium (www.stanleylab.org). Library constructed and subtracted by Dr. Nancy Johnston [(410) 614-3918, firstname.lastname@example.org].
