Extraction and Quantification of GABA and Glutamate from Cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803
Authors:  Simab Kanwal and Aran Incharoensakdi, date: 09/20/2016, view: 10235, Q&A: 0
GABA (γ-amino butyric acid) is a biologically active four carbon non-protein amino acid found in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Glutamate is a five carbon α-amino acid which can be converted to GABA catalyzed by the enzyme glutamate decarboxylase. In ...

A Simple Method for the Isolation and in vitro Expansion of Highly Pure Mouse and Human Satellite Cells

Satellite cells (SCs) are muscle stem cells capable of regenerating injured muscle. The study of their functional potential depends on the availability of methods for the isolation and expansion of pure SCs, which retain myogenic properties after

Single Cell Analysis and Sorting of Aspergillus fumigatus by Flow Cytometry
Authors:  Gareth Howell and Robert-Jan Bleichrodt, date: 04/20/2021, view: 2102, Q&A: 0

Experimental results in fungal biology research are usually obtained as average measurements across whole populations of cells, whilst ignoring what is happening at the single cell level. Microscopy has allowed us to study single-cell behavior, but
