Name: Stanley Frontal S/N pool 2 Library ID: 1253 Organism: Homo sapiens Gender: both Age: 0 Stage: adult Organ: brain/CNS Tissue: frontal cortex pool: schizophrenic 44 yo male, S-118 (schizophrenic 56 yo female), S-124 (41 yo male), S-141 (53 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 schizophrenics, male age 44 and female age 56 (S-116, S-118) subtracted by pool of two mentally normal male individuals ages 41 and 53 (S-124, S-141). 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].
