Figure 1726

Schematic representation of a differential display gel in which mRNA from kidneys is reverse-transcribed and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplified (see Figure 17-25). The PCR amplification is conducted in the presence of radioactive nucleotides. The cDNA fragments corresponding to the 3' end of the mRNA species are displayed by running them on a sequencing gel, followed by autoradiography. The arrows show bands corresponding to mRNA transcripts that are expressed differentially 1) in response to insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I) treatment and induction of ischemic injury; 2) in an IGF-I-dependent manner; 3) in response to induction of ischemic injury; and 4) to genes that are down-regulated after induction of ischemic injury.
