PURPOSE To compare gene expression profiles of lacrimal gland duct and acinar cells after laser capture microdissection (LCM) and identify molecular networks related to K+ secretion, testing the hypothesis that duct cells are responsible for high K+ levels in tears. METHODS Frozen sections of lacrimal glands from five rats were subjected to LCM to isolate pure samples of duct and acinar cells. RNA was extracted, amplified, reverse transcribed, and hybridized to rat cDNA microarrays. Paired… CONTINUE READING
