In vivo Mitophagy Monitoring in Caenorhabditis elegans to Determine Mitochondrial Homeostasis
Authors:  Konstantinos Palikaras and Nektarios Tavernarakis, date: 04/05/2017, view: 965, Q&A: 0
Perturbation of mitochondrial function is a major hallmark of several pathological conditions and ageing, underlining the essential role of fine-tuned mitochondrial activity (Lopez-Otin et al., 2013). Mitochondrial selective autophagy, ...
Protein Synthesis Rate Assessment by Fluorescence Recovery after Photobleaching (FRAP)
Authors:  Nikos Kourtis and Nektarios Tavernarakis, date: 03/05/2017, view: 1250, Q&A: 0
Currently available biochemical methods cannot be applied to monitor protein synthesis in specific cells or tissues, in live specimens. Here, we describe a non-invasive method for monitoring protein synthesis in single cells or tissues with ...
