Your Data: Detection of Oocyte-specific Gene Expression Using Ambion's Cells-to-cDNA Kit


Ambion's Cells-to-cDNA Kit produces cDNA ideal for RT-PCR based gene quantitation, including experiments performed using real-time RT-PCR. The Cells-to-cDNA Kit comes in an easy-to-use format that produces first-strand cDNA from cultured cells without RNA isolation in less than 2 hours. By using an RT-compatible Cell Lysis Buffer that inactivates RNases, RT-PCR can be carried out on only a few cells.

Using the Cells-to-cDNA Kit, Dr. Alex Bortvin from the Whitehead Institute (Cambridge, Massachusetts) has successfully carried out RT-PCR amplification of an oocyte-specific gene and a housekeeping gene from individual mouse oocytes. Dr. Bortvin made some modifications to the Cells-to-cDNA protocol for this application. One fertilized oocyte (in 1 l of culture medium) was added to 5 l of Cell Lysis Buffer and overlaid with oil to prevent evaporation. After cell lysis, DNase I treatment was carried out with a 1:10 dilution of the enzyme at 37C for 30 min. cDNA was synthesized according to the Cells-to-cDNA protocol.

In order to ensure that clean templates for cDNA library synthesis and multiplex PCR applications was obtained, Dr. Bortvin purified the first-strand cDNA using a PCR purification kit (note that this should not normally be necessary). This step enabled him to use the PCR components and conditions that he had previously optimized for his gene of interest. PCR was carried out with gene-specific primers for 50 cycles. A "minus-RT" control reaction was included to rule out the presence of any trace genomic DNA contamination; none was seen (data not shown).
