Library Acc. HLUPLC
Organism Humulus lupulus
Tissue Trichome (lupulin gland)
Stage Trichomes isolated from mid to ripe stage hop cones
Description Vector: pBluescript SK+; Site_1: EcoRI; Site_2: XhoI; The library HLUPLC was constructed from RNA isolated from lupulin glands from the variety 'Taurus'. Hop cones were collected near Mainburg, Germany in August 2003. Lupulin glands were isolated by agitating dissected cones in liquid nitrogen followed by filtration to remove cone material. Total RNA was isolated using an RNeasy Plant Mini Kit (Qiagen) and mRNA was purified using a Dynabeads mRNA purification kit (Qiagen). HLUPLC was constructed using a cDNA library synthesis kit (Stratagene) and cDNAs ligated into the plasmid vector pBluescript SK+. The library was normalized using a hydroxyapatite-based method (C0t 2.5 and 5) (Bonaldo et al. (1996) Genome Res. 6, 791).
