Measurement of the Intracellular Calcium Concentration with Fura-2 AM Using a Fluorescence Plate Reader
Authors:  Magdiel Martínez, Namyr A. Martínez and Walter I. Silva, date: 07/20/2017, view: 3524, Q&A: 0
Intracellular calcium elevation triggers a wide range of cellular responses. Calcium responses can be affected or modulated by membrane receptors mutations, localization, exposure to agonists/antagonists, among others (Burgos et al., 2007; ...

Analyzing the Properties of Murine Intestinal Mucins by Electrophoresis and Histology
Authors:  Ran Wang and Sumaira Z. Hasnain, date: 07/20/2017, view: 3058, Q&A: 0
Specialized secretory cells known as goblet cells in the intestine and respiratory epithelium are responsible for the secretion of mucins. Mucins are large heavily glycosylated proteins and typically have a molecular mass higher than 106 ...

Method for CRISPR/Cas9 Mutagenesis in Candida albicans
Authors:  Neta Dean and Henry Ng, date: 04/20/2018, view: 22, Q&A: 0
Candida albicans is the most prevalent and important human fungal pathogen. The advent of CRISPR as a means of gene editing has greatly facilitated genetic analysis in C. albicans. Here, we describe a detailed step-by-step ...

Extraction of Small Molecules from Fecal Samples and Testing of Their Activity on Microbial Physiology
Authors:  Eduardo S. Alves, Rosana B. R. Ferreira and L. Caetano M. Antunes, date: 04/20/2018, view: 22, Q&A: 0
The human body is colonized by vast communities of microbes, collectively known as microbiota, or microbiome. Although microbes colonize every surface of our bodies that is exposed to the external environment, the biggest collection of microbes ...
