Organism:Homo sapiens
Library Keywords:retina, non-normalized, normal, epithelium, bulk, short SAGE

Tag Info

#Total tags:53,666

Tissue Info

Cell/Histology type:normal retinal pigment epithelium
Tissue preparation:bulk
Patient age:88
Other info:Patient had periocular malignancies that required exenteration of a normal eye as part of the clinically indicated surgical therapy. The eye was placed in saline after it was removed from the patient and peripheral retinal fragments were collected from regions outside the central arcades and frozen within 45 minutes of the surgical removal to ensure minimal degradation of mRNA molecules.

Library Preparation Info

Tagging enzyme:BsmFI
Anchoring enzyme:NlaIII
Tissue or cell line supplier:null
Library preparer:Dror Sharon
Prepared in lab of:Massachusetts Eye and Ear Ocular Molecular Genetics laboratory
