    Pancreatic Acinar Cell Preparation for Oxygen Consumption and Lactate Production Analysis
    Authors:  Jane A. Armstrong, Robert Sutton and David N. Criddle, date: 05/20/2020, view: 824, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Mitochondrial dysfunction is a principal feature of acute pancreatitis (AP) although the underlying mechanisms are still unclear. AP precipitants induce Ca2+-dependent formation of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (MPTP) in pancreatic acinar cells (PACs), leading to ATP depletion and necrosis. Evaluations of mitochondrial ...
    Oxygen Consumption Measurements in Caenorhabditis elegans Using the Seahorse XF24
    Authors:  Suraiya Haroon and Marc Vermulst, date: 07/05/2019, view: 2188, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Mitochondria generate 90% of the energy required to sustain life. As a result, loss of mitochondrial function compromises almost every facet of human physiology. Accordingly, most mitochondrial diseases tend to present themselves as complex, multi-systemic disorders that can be difficult to diagnose. Depending on the severity of the mitochondrial ...
    Measurement of Intracellular ROS in Caenorhabditis elegans Using 2’,7’-Dichlorodihydrofluorescein Diacetate
    Authors:  Dong Suk Yoon, Myon-Hee Lee and Dong Seok Cha, date: 03/20/2018, view: 7546, Q&A: 1
    [Abstract] Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are generated during normal metabolic processes under aerobic conditions. Since ROS production initiates harmful radical chain reactions on cellular macromolecules, including lipid peroxidation, DNA mutation, and protein denaturation, it has been implicated in a wide spectrum of diseases such as cancer, ...
    Assays for the Detection of Rubber Oxygenase Activities
    Authors:  Wolf Röther, Jakob Birke and Dieter Jendrossek, date: 03/20/2017, view: 5011, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Microbial biodegradation of rubber relies on extracellular rubber oxygenases that catalyze the oxidative cleavage of the double bond of the polyisoprene backbone into oligo-isoprenoids. This protocol describes the determination of rubber oxygenase activities by an online measurement of molecular oxygen consumption via a non-invasive ...
    Measuring Oxygen Consumption Rate in Caenorhabditis elegans
    Authors:  Konstantinos Palikaras and Nektarios Tavernarakis, date: 12/05/2016, view: 7316, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The rate of oxygen consumption is a vital marker indicating cellular function during lifetime under normal or metabolically challenged conditions. It is used broadly to study mitochondrial function (Artal-Sanz and Tavernarakis, 2009; Palikaras et al., 2015; Ryu et al., 2016) or investigate factors mediating the switch from ...
