With the aid of a dissecting microscope hearts were manually removed from embryos submerged in phosphate buffered saline (PBS). The atria were isolated using mini-Vannas scissors or fine forceps. The region designated atria is shown in the organogenic image. As much blood was removed as possible from the atria before transfer to Trizol. The atria from 34 embryos of several liters was collected to obtain enough RNA for SAGE library construction.
