Laser capture microdissection (LCM) coupled with transcriptome profiling is a powerful technique that allows for tissue-specific gene expression analysis in a complex system. One major challenge in using this technique is to obtain RNA without compromising its integrity. Here, we present a protocol optimized for radish root tissue sections using Steedman's wax embedding to obtain high-quality RNA suitable for next-generation sequencing analysis.

scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
