GeneChip™ Arabidopsis Gene 1.1 ST Array Strip Applied Biosystems™

The Arabidopsis Gene 1.1 ST Array Strips enable you to:
• Measure expression, across the entire gene, with higher resolution and accuracy than with classical 3'-biased microarray solutions
• Get accurate and reproducible data by using multiple independent measurements for each transcript
• Process four samples on a single array strip with the cost-effective GeneAtlas™ System

Background
Model and applied research organisms are valuable for comparative genomics research, evolutionary biology, and continue to play a critical role in deciphering the molecular mechanisms underlying human disease, and agricultural crop improvement. Gene 1.1 ST Array Strips have been developed for the analysis of a wide range of model and applied research organisms. These organisms are the latest additions to the growing family of Gene Expression Microarrays offering whole-transcript coverage. The Gene 1.1 ST Array Strip were designed in collaboration with influential researchers, such as Alan Archibald, Head of the Division of Genetics and Genomics at the Roslin Institute (Porcine Gene 1.1 ST array design), Leonard Zon, Director of Stem Cell Research Program, and Yi Zhou, Genomic Core Director of the Stem Cell Research Program at Children's Hospital Boston and Harvard Medical School in Boston (Zebrafish Gene 1.1 ST Array design).

Key benefits
Highest transcript coverage – get confident expression measurements of well-annotated content with up to 26 probes per transcript
Whole-transcriptome analysis – capture the transcript isoforms you may miss with 3'-biased expression designs
High data correlation – achieve high inter- and intra- array strip signal correlation (R >0.99)
Convenient format – process four samples at the same time with minimal manual array handling
Simple workflow – streamline your work, from target preparation through pathway analysis, and use intuitive software for data interpretation

Proven performance from the industry standard
Gene 1.1 ST Array Strips offer whole-transcriptome coverage for selected model and applied research organisms. All designs are based on the most recent genomic content and offer the highest probe coverage (up to 26 probes across the full length of the gene). This allows for accurate detection for whole-transcriptome microarray analysis and provides higher resolution and accuracy than other classical 3'-biased microarray solutions on the market. The whole-transcriptome analysis approach enables researchers to detect multiple transcript isoforms, including those that might be missed using a 3'-biased expression design, such as splice variants, non-polyadenylated transcripts, transcripts with alternative polyadenylation sites, and truncated transcripts.

Gene 1.1 ST Array Strips are designed exclusively for the GeneAtlas System – the first personal microarray system to allow four samples to be processed in parallel. It combines affordability, simplified workflow, ease of use, intuitive software, and excellent performance. For more information on the GeneAtlas System, please visit here.

Gene 1.1 ST Array Strips are supported by our easy-to-use and integrated data analysis software pipeline, which includes GeneAtlas Instrument Control Software for instrument processing of array strips, Partek™ Express™ Software for quality control and statistical analysis, and Ariadne Pathway Studio™ Explore Software for pathway analysis, visualization, and other features that allow you to put your data into a biological context.

Please note that Pathway Studio Explore includes the ResNet™ Mammalian Database, which supports analysis of human, mouse, and rat sequences. The software also offers access to the ResNet Plant Database, which has gene definitions from Entrez for Arabidopsis, rice, and soybean, but other than Arabidopsis, only has relationship data for those species-specific genes. You may contact Ariadne to obtain the ResNet Plant Database on DVD free of charge. For all other organisms, contact Ariadne to explore possibilities for creating a custom database.

GeneChip™ Human Gene 2.0 ST Assay Applied Biosystems™

The GeneChip™ Human Gene 2.0 ST Array and GeneChip WT PLUS Reagent Kit provide the most accurate, sensitive, and comprehensive measurement of protein coding and long intergenic non-coding RNA transcripts.

Comprehensive design
Keeping pace with the research community's understanding of the transcriptome, we have designed whole-transcript arrays that include probes to measure both messenger (mRNA) and long intergenic non-coding RNA transcripts (lincRNA). These whole-transcript array designs provide a complete expression profile of mRNA as well as the intermediary lincRNA transcripts that impact the mRNA expression profile.
Research over the past 20 years has predominantly focused on protein coding messenger RNA transcripts and their role in cellular processes, such as disease and development. Recently researchers have identified more that 10,000 transcripts (>200 bases) with little or no protein coding potential. Only a small fraction of these non-coding RNAs has functional annotations to date. However, there is ample evidence that differential expression of lincRNAs plays an important role in the genesis and progression of disease and that aberrant expression of these molecules have also been linked to cancer. Recent advancements in transcriptome profiling provided evidence of the association of lincRNAs in a diverse range of cellular functions:
• Regulation of mRNA transcription
• Regulation of mRNA post-transcriptional modifications
• Occlusion/recruitment of transcription factor binding
• Activation and transportation of transcription factors
• Interaction with accessory proteins
• Guide protein complexes to locations in the genome

Key benefits
• Comprehensive coverage provides the best opportunity to discover interesting biology
• >30,000 coding transcripts
• >11,000 long intergenic non-coding transcripts
• Measure alternative splicing events/transcript variants with probes designed to maximize exon coverage
• Reproducible: Intra-lot correlation coefficient =0.99

Content profile
Since the design of the Human Gene 1.0 ST Array, there have been a massive number of new lincRNA that have been identified by the research community. In order to provide the research community with a tool that can measure the differential expression of this exciting class of RNA transcripts, we have designed the Human Gene 2.0 ST Array. To supplement the lincRNA data contained in RefSeq, we used sequences and transcripts from lncRNA db www.lncrnadb.com and Broad Institute, Human Body Map lincRNAs and TUCP (transcripts of uncertain coding potential catalog) lincRNAs
