Bimolecular Fluorescence Complementation (BiFC) for Studying Sarcomeric Protein Interactions in Drosophila
Authors:  Océane Marescal, Frieder Schöck and Nicanor González-Morales, date: 04/05/2020, view: 563, Q&A: 0
Protein-protein interactions in Drosophila myofibrils are essential for their function and formation. Bimolecular Fluorescence Complementation (BiFC) is an effective method for studying protein interactions and localization. BiFC relies on ...
Rapid IFM Dissection for Visualizing Fluorescently Tagged Sarcomeric Proteins
Authors:  Yu Shu Xiao, Frieder Schöck and Nicanor González-Morales, date: 11/20/2017, view: 5902, Q&A: 0
Sarcomeres, the smallest contractile unit of muscles, are arguably the most impressive actomyosin structure. Yet a complete understanding of sarcomere formation and maintenance is missing. The Drosophila indirect flight muscle (IFM) has ...

Superresolution Microscopy of Drosophila Indirect Flight Muscle Sarcomeres
Authors:  Szilárd Szikora, Tibor Novák, Tamás Gajdos, Miklós Erdélyi and József Mihály, date: 06/20/2020, view: 462, Q&A: 0
Sarcomeres are extremely highly ordered macromolecular assemblies where proper structural organization is an absolute prerequisite to the functionality of these contractile units. Despite the wealth of information collected, the exact spatial ...
