Human methyl-CpG-binding protein 2 (MeCP2) disruption causes Rett syndrome, an autistic disease prevalent in females. Previous microarray expression profiling studies using tissue homogenate samples from mouse model of the Rett syndrome revealed only modest changes in expression caused by the loss of Mecp2, making it difficult to identify etiology of the Rett syndrome. Here, we carried out cell type specific genome wide expression profiling of Mecp2 null mice in three neuronal cell types. We found a hot spot of Mecp2 affected genes in chromosome 11B3 syntenic to human chromosome 17p13 which has known associations to mental retardation. We also found Mecp2 affected genes are almost non-overlapping between cell types. Cell-adhesion category of genes, however, are commonly overrepresented, suggesting a possible etiology of Rett syndrome Keywords: cell type comparison, disease state analysis, genetic modification Transgenic mice lines which label subpopulations of neurons (G42: fast spiking Parvarbumin positive interneurons, YFPH: layer 5 thick tufted pyramidal neurons, TH: tyrosine hydroxylase positive locus coeruleus neurons) were used to obtain cell type specific expression profiles on Affymetrix microarrays. Females which carry Mecp2 null alleles (and one of the fluorescent alleles) were crossed with males (which may or may not carry one of the fluorescent alleles depending on whether the female has one or not). Male offsprings at around age P40 which carry fluorescent allele and Mecp2 null allele were used for experiments. Littermate males which carry fluorescent allele but not Mecp2 null allele were used for controls. 3 or 4 biological replicates were done for each condition.
