Impacts of DNA Microarray Technology in Gene Therapy

  title={Impacts of DNA Microarray Technology in Gene Therapy},
  author={Jaleh Barar and Amir Ata Saei and Yadollah Omidi},
Invention of microarray technology in the early 1990s revolutionized the genomic research, where it was exploited for global gene expression profiling through screening the expression of thousands of genes simultaneously (Watson et al., 1998). Northern blotting and reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) which were the traditional techniques for monitoring changes in mRNA levels were replaced with high density arrays, which proved to impart comprehensive data and to be better…

Since the DNA microarray assembly technology has been based on methods widely used in the semiconductor industry, the authors can expect a rapid onset of the routine use of this revolutionary device.

Review of microarray experimental design strategies for genetical genomics studies.

This presentation reviews some selective profiling strategies for genetical genomics studies, including the selection of individuals for increased genetic dissimilarity and for a higher number of recombination events.

Antisense DNAs as multisite genomic modulators identified by DNA microarray

It is shown that in a sequence-specific manner, antisense targeted to protein kinase A RIα alters expression of the clusters of coordinately expressed genes at a specific stage of cell growth, differentiation, and activation.

Bioinformatics: microarray data clustering and functional classification.

In this chapter, in terms of how to use Cluster 3.0 and Java Treeview for microarray data clustering, and BGSSJ for functional classification are explained in detail.

Identifying Differentially Expressed Genes in cDNA Microarray Experiments

This work derives models for the intensity of a replicated spot, when replication is performed within and between arrays, and predicts how the variance of a log ratio changes with the total intensity of the signal at the spot, independent of the identity of the gene.

Toxicogenomics of Non-viral Vectors for Gene Therapy: A Microarray Study of Lipofectin- and Oligofectamine-induced Gene Expression Changes in Human Epithelial Cells

The fact that inadvertent gene expression changes can be induced by the delivery formulation alone and that these may, ultimately, have important safety implications for the use of these non-viral vectors in gene-based therapies are highlighted.
