    Measuring Small-molecule Inhibition of Protein Interactions in Live Cells Using FLIM-FRET
    Authors:  James M. Pemberton, Qian Liu and David W. Andrews, date: 10/20/2019, view: 2669, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] This protocol was designed to quantitatively measure small-molecule displacement of proteins in live mammalian cells using fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy–Förster resonance energy transfer (FLIM-FRET). Tumour cell survival is often dependent on anti-apoptotic proteins, which bind to and inhibit pro-apoptotic proteins, thus preventing ...
    Fluorescence HPLC Analysis of the in-vivo Activity of Glucosylceramide Synthase
    Authors:  Kartik R. Roy, Sachin K. Khiste, Zhijun Liu and Yong-Yu Liu, date: 06/20/2019, view: 2636, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Almost all functions of cells or organs rely on the activities of cellular enzymes. Indeed, the in-vivo activities that directly represent the cellular effects of enzymes in live organs are critical importance to appreciate the roles enzymes play in modulating physiological or pathological processes, although assessments of such in-vivo ...
    Visualization of Macropinocytosis in Prostate Fibroblasts
    Authors:  Rajeev Mishra and Neil A. Bhowmick, date: 05/20/2019, view: 2994, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Macropinocytosis has emerged as an important mechanism for non-selective route to internalize extracellular fluids and dissolved molecules in eukaryotic cell. As fundamental cellular behavior, macropinocytosis plays specific and distinct roles in many physiological and pathological processes, such as nutrients uptake, antigen presentation, ...
    A Functionally Robust Phenotypic Screen that Identifies Drug Resistance-associated Genes Using 3D Cell Culture
    Authors:  Sun-Young Lee and Mina J. Bissell, date: 11/20/2018, view: 2818, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Drug resistance is a major obstacle in cancer treatment: A case in point is the failure of cancer patients to respond to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) of EGFR, a receptor that is highly expressed in many cancers. Identification of the targets and delineation of mechanisms of drug resistance remain major challenges. Traditional pharmacological ...
