    In vitro Differentiation of Human iPSC-derived Cardiovascular Progenitor Cells (iPSC-CVPCs)
    Authors:  Agnieszka D’Antonio-Chronowska, Matteo D’Antonio and Kelly A. Frazer, date: 09/20/2020, view: 379, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Induced pluripotent stem cell derived cardiovascular progenitor cells (iPSC-CVPCs) provide an unprecedented platform for examining the molecular underpinnings of cardiac development and disease etiology, but also have great potential to play pivotal roles in the future of regenerative medicine and pharmacogenomic studies. Biobanks like iPSCORE ( ...
    Direct Reprogramming of Mouse Embryonic Fibroblasts to Conventional Type 1 Dendritic Cells by Enforced Expression of Transcription Factors
    Authors:  Fábio F. Rosa, Cristiana F. Pires, Olga Zimmermannova and Carlos-Filipe Pereira, date: 05/20/2020, view: 1389, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Ectopic expression of transcription factor combinations has been recently demonstrated to reprogram differentiated somatic cells towards the dendritic cell (DC) lineage without reversion to a multipotent state. DCs have the ability to induce potent and long-lasting adaptive immune responses. In particular, conventional type 1 DCs (cDC1s) excel on ...
    Rapid Generation of Human Neuronal Cell Models Enabling Inducible Expression of Proteins-of-interest for Functional Studies
    [Abstract] CRISPR-Cas9 technology has transformed the ability to edit genomic sequences and control gene expression with unprecedented ease and scale. However, precise genomic insertions of coding sequences using this technology remain time-consuming and inefficient because they require introducing adjacent single-strand cuts through Cas9 nickase action and ...
    CRISPR-Cas9 Genome Editing of Plasmodium knowlesi
    Authors:  Franziska Mohring, Melissa N. Hart, Avnish Patel, David A. Baker and Robert W. Moon, date: 02/20/2020, view: 1548, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Plasmodium knowlesi is a zoonotic malaria parasite in Southeast Asia that can cause severe and fatal malaria in humans. The main hosts are Macaques, but modern diagnostic tools reveal increasing numbers of human infections. After P. falciparum, P. knowlesi is the only other malaria parasite capable of being maintained in ...
    In vitro Self-organized Mouse Small Intestinal Epithelial Monolayer Protocol
    Authors:  Gizem Altay, Eduard Batlle, Vanesa Fernández-Majada and Elena Martinez, date: 02/05/2020, view: 3148, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Developing protocols to obtain intestinal epithelial monolayers that recapitulate in vivo physiology to overcome the limitations of the organoids’ closed geometry has become of great interest during the last few years. Most of the developed culture models showed physiological-relevant cell composition but did not prove self-renewing ...
    Antisense Oligodeoxynucleotide Perfusion Blocks Gene Expression of Synaptic Plasticity-related Proteins without Inducing Compensation in Hippocampal Slices
    [Abstract] The elucidation of the molecular mechanisms of long-term synaptic plasticity has been hindered by both the compensation that can occur after chronic loss of the core plasticity molecules and by ex vivo conditions that may not reproduce in vivo plasticity. Here we describe a novel method to rapidly suppress gene expression by ...
    Reconstituting Breast Tissue with Organotypic Three-dimensional Co-culture of Epithelial and Stromal Cells in Discontinuous Extracellular Matrices
    Authors:  Gang Ren, Vandana Sharma, Joshua Letson, Yashna Walia, Veani Fernando and Saori Furuta, date: 10/05/2019, view: 1845, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Co-culture systems utilizing reconstituted or synthetic extracellular matrix (ECM) and micropatterning techniques have enabled the reconstruction of surface epithelial tissues. This technique has been utilized in the regeneration, disease modeling and drug screening of the surface epithelia, such as the skin and esophagus. On the other hand, the ...
    A Novel Protocol to Generate Decellularized Bovine Spinal Cord Extracellular Matrix-based Scaffolds (3D-dCBS)
    Authors:  Yavuz E. Arslan, Burcu Efe and Tugba Sezgin Arslan, date: 10/05/2019, view: 1704, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Extracellular matrix (ECM)-based tissue engineering scaffolds have an essential role in promoting tissue regeneration. Nerve tissue engineering aims at facilitating the repair of permanent damage to the peripheral and central nervous systems, which are difficult to heal. For this purpose, a variety of biomaterials are being developed consisting of ...
    CRISPR/Cas9 + AAV-mediated Intra-embryonic Gene Knocking in Mice
    [Abstract] Intra-embryo genome editing by CRISPR/Cas9 has enabled rapid generation of gene knockout animals. However, large fragment knock-in directly into embryos’ genome is still difficult, especially without microinjection of donor DNA. Viral vectors are good transporters of knock-in donor DNA for cell lines, but seemed unsuitable for pre-implantation ...
    In vitro Generation of CRISPR-Cas9 Complexes with Covalently Bound Repair Templates for Genome Editing in Mammalian Cells
    [Abstract] The CRISPR-Cas9 system is a powerful genome-editing tool that promises application for gene editing therapies. The Cas9 nuclease is directed to the DNA by a programmable single guide (sg)RNA, and introduces a site-specific double-stranded break (DSB). In mammalian cells, DSBs are either repaired by non-homologous end joining (NHEJ), generating ...
