Measurement of Chlorophyll a and Carotenoids Concentration in Cyanobacteria
Authors:  Tomáš Zavřel, Maria A. Sinetova and Jan Červený, date: 05/05/2015, view: 10201, Q&A: 0
This is a protocol for precise measurement of chlorophyll a and total carotenoid concentrations in cyanobacteria cells. Cellular chlorophyll concentration is one of the central physiological parameters, routinely followed in many research ...
Immunoelectron Microscopy in Chlamydomonas Cells
Authors:  Maria A. Sinetova and Alexandra G. Markelova, date: 03/05/2013, view: 5654, Q&A: 0
The method of immunoelectron microscopy is intended for localization of proteins inside the cells of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii or other microalgae and cyanobacteria. This protocol was used to study localization of carbonic anhydrase Cah3 ...

Quantification of Chlorophyll as a Proxy for Biofilm Formation in the Cyanobacterium Synechococcus elongatus
Authors:  Eleonora Sendersky, Ryan Simkovsky, Susan S. Golden and Rakefet Schwarz, date: 07/20/2017, view: 1634, Q&A: 0
A self-suppression mechanism of biofilm development in the cyanobacterium Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942 was recently reported. These studies required quantification of biofilms formed by mutants impaired in the biofilm-inhibitory ...

Histochemical Detection of Zn in Plant Tissues
Authors:  Ilya Seregin, Anna Kozhevnikova and Henk Schat, date: 05/20/2015, view: 3759, Q&A: 0
Accumulation of metals in plant tissues, and occasionally, different cells of the same tissue, may be highly non-uniform (Seregin and Kozhevnikova, 2008). Easy-to-use histochemical methods may greatly help to investigate the distribution and ...

Substrate Specificity of Recombinant Ser/Thr Protein Kinase
Authors:  Anna A. Zorina, Galina V. Novikova and Dmitry A. Los, date: 03/20/2015, view: 4131, Q&A: 0
Protein kinases are enzymes that phosphorylate proteins in a cell. Determination of kinase activity in reactions of phosphorylation is a very convenient way for a biochemical characterization of this group of enzymes. Here we describe a method to ...
