Growth Condition: Plants were grown in a Conviron chamber under continuous light with fluorescent lamps at 20oC and 50% - 70% relative humidity. Experiments were performed as described (Le et. al., 2003, PNAS).
Microarray Methods: Total RNA was extracted using the Hot Borate Method (ref.). Fifteen micrograms of biotinylated complementary RNA (cRNA) was prepared as described (Le et. al., 2003, PNAS). cRNA was subsequently hybridized to Affymetrix ATH1 Arabidopsis GeneChips. The scanned array images were analyzed using Affymetrix Microarray Suite 5.0 (MAS 5.0) with a global scaling intensity set at 500.
