SAGE Library Info

Library ID

New SAGE Library Name:SAGE_Retinal_Pigment_Epithelium_normal_B_4MacRPE
Old SAGE Library Name:
Organism:Homo sapiens
Library Keywords:retina, macular retinal pigment epithelium, normal, bulk, human, male, female, adult, short sage

Tag Info

#Total tags:77,310
#Tags excluding linkers:77,262
#Unique tags:35,324

Tissue Info

Cell/Histology type:macular retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and choroid
Tissue preparation:bulk
Patient age:40-59 year old pool of 5 donors
Sex:male and female
Other info:RPE/choroid libraries were made from 4 mm diameter punches of macular RPE/choroid (4MacRPE) and matching 4 mm diameter punches of mid-peripheral RPE/choroid, (4PeriRPE), taken from five donor eyes. While these libraries were made from RPE/choroid, subsequent analysis has revealed significant content of retinal transcripts in addition to RPE markers.

Library Preparation Info

Tagging enzyme:BsmFI
Anchoring enzyme:NlaIII
Tissue or cell line supplier:null
Library preparer:Jessica Ebright
Prepared in lab of:Catherine Bowes Rickman, Duke University Eye Center
