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 atria region is as shown in the organogenic image. As much blood was removed as possible from the atria before transfer to Trizol. The atria of embryos of several litters were collected to obtain enough RNA for SAGE library construction.
