Notes: Total and poly(A)+ RNA from treated and untreated 8701-BC breast cancer tumor cells were treated with RQ1 RNase-free DNase. The RNA samples were reverse transcribed using the M-MLV RNase H– point mutant reverse transcriptase and random primers to create cDNA used in downstream analyses. The cDNA from the reactions were used in PCR, differential display PCR, and semi-quantitative multiplex PCR reactions. In differential display PCR studies, the authors analyzed differentially displayed bands by staining 6% polyacrylamide gels with the SILVER SEQUENCE™ Staining Reagents. Differentially displayed bands were re-amplified and cloned using the pGEM®-T Easy Vector and high efficiency JM109 competent cells. (3020)
