Title The Arabidopsis spaceflight transcriptome: a comparison of whole plants to discrete root, hypocotyl and shoot responses to the orbital environment
Organism Arabidopsis thaliana
Experiment type Expression profiling by array
Summary transcriptome response of Arabidopsis cultivar Columbia and WS whole plants and plant tissue roots, hypocotyls and shoots to the spaceflight environment
Arabidopsis thaliana was evaluated for its response to the spaceflight environment in three replicated experiments on the International Space Station. Two approaches were used; GFP reporter genes were used to collect gene expression data in real time within unique GFP imaging hardware, and plants were harvested on orbit to RNAlater for subsequent analyses of gene expression with using Affymetrix and SAGE transcriptome analyses. Three tissue types were examined (leaves, hypocotyls and roots) and compared to analyses conducted with whole plants. Transcriptome analyses with whole plants suggested that the spaceflight environment had little impact on the transcriptome of arabidopsis, however, closer examination of selected tissues revealed that there are a number of tissue-specific responses that arabidopsis employs to respond to this novel environment.

This experiment was launched on STS-131 in 2010 and was supported by NASA grant NNX07AH27G - Transgenic Plant Biomonitors of Space Flight Exposure to R.J. Ferl and A-L. Paul.
Overall design whole plants total samples 6: spaceflight 3 samples vs unit gravity ground control' 3 samples; plant tissue total samples 30: shoots: spaceflight 5 samples vs unit gravity ground control' 5 samples; hypocotyls: spaceflight 5 samples vs unit gravity ground control' 5 samples; roots: spaceflight 5 samples vs unit gravity ground control' 5 samples;
