Cross-hybridization of GSC. Cross-hybridization of the GSC spike mRNAs to Affymetrix GeneChip. (a) A scatter plot of a blank sample with the GSC (horizontal axis) and a blank with the five spike RNAs at a high dosage (vertical axis) measured by MG-U74v2A GeneChips (raw values generated by Affymetrix MAS 5.0 software). The five spikes are indicated by black dots with arrows. Signals of the murine probe sets were below 20 on the horizontal axis, indicating negligible cross-hybridization of GSC spike mRNAs to the murine probe sets. (b) A scatter plot of a liver sample with GSC (horizontal axis) and without GSC (vertical axis) measured by MG-U74v2A GeneChips. The five spikes are again indicated by black dots with arrows. The dotted line is the 1/25 fold (4%) line. Cross-hybridization of mouse liver mRNAs to the GSC signals was considered negligible (less than 4%).
