Gene Expression Profile

Definition

Refers to the level at which each of a chosen set of cellular genes is expressed, measured as mRNA transcript abundance. To determine an expression profile, messenger-RNA from relevant cells is copied into labeled (with fluorescence dye or radioactive nucleotide) complementary cDNA probes. The probes are then incubated ono a DNA array containing spots of DNA from known genes being investigated. Hybridization
