After harvesting SK-N-SH samples over the past 8 days, I'll be purifying the RNA and converting into cDNA using the Superscript III first-strand synthesis kit (Life Technologies 18080-051).
This is a time course experiment, with each time point containing two biological replicates and a control.
Samples were first grown to confluency in 6-well plates, then treated with 4 µg of KAH126-MV2 plasmid and transfected following the Lipofectamine LTX protocol. After incubation for the reported time, samples were harvested, measured via flow cytometry and fluorescence microscopy, and then digested in TRIzol before being stored at -80 °C.
Samples in TRIzol were treated using the TRIzol/RNeasy protocol. Samples were then measured using the BioTek plate reader.
Measured concentrations don't exactly match expectations - for some reason RNA concentration decreases sharply for post-48hr and post-72hr treated samples.
Running 3 reactions (6 µg) per sample, for a total of 27 reactions. Basically all the samples have too low of an RNA concentration to load 2 µg per reaction, so I'll be running the max 8 µL instead.
