Cells were treated with 500 nM GrK or 500 nM GrKSA. After 16 hours, 1 ml of TRIzol Reagent (Ambion) was added to homogenize the sample. After 5 minutes at room temperature, the RNA was extracted using chloroform. The RNA-phase was precipitated with isopropanol, pelleted by centrifugation at 10,000 rpm for 15 minutes, washed with 70% ethanol and dissolved in water. Subsequently, an equal amount of RNA was used to make cDNA. RNA expression levels were measured in a RT-qPCR reaction, using SYBR Green Dye (Applied Biosystems). All measurements were performed in duplicate on a ViiA 7 Real-Time PCR System (Applied Biosystems). Relative quantification results were obtained using the ΔΔCt method and expression values were normalized to ubiquitin C (UBC). Primers used in 5’ to 3’ direction: sVEGFR1 forward:AGAGGTGAGCACTGCAACAA, sVEGFR1 reverse: TCTCCTCCGAGCCTGAAAGT, UBC forward: AGTAGTCCCTTCTCGGCGAT and UBC reverse: GCATTGTCAAGTGACGATCACAG.
