macroarray

macroarray

An inexpensive variation of a microarray—a two-dimensional grid or array deployed on a glass slide or silicon wafer—in which the spots of cells or biomolecules confined to a particular co-ordinate on the grid measure about 1 mm in diameter (in contrast to the 250µ-diameter spots on a microarray).

The transcription of inflammatory genes was analyzed 48 h later with an inflammation-specific macroarray. Compared to cells cultured with medium alone, activated PBLs acquired significant expression of mRNAs encoding various inflammatory mediators (IL1, 1L6, C3, etc.) or chemotactic factors/receptors (IL8, CCL3, CCL20) (Table 1) known for their critical role in inflammation (Choy and Panayi 2001; Sadik and Luster 2012).
