Isolation and Imaging of His- and RFP-tagged Amyloid-like Proteins from Caenorhabditis elegans by TEM and SIM
Authors:  Amberley D. Stephens, Meng Lu and Gabriele S. Kaminski Schierle, date: 11/05/2019, view: 1451, Q&A: 0
In our recently published paper, we highlight that during normal aging of C. elegans age-dependent aggregates of proteins form and lead to functional decline of tissues. The protocol described here details the isolation of two proteins from ...

Pentylenetetrazole (PTZ)-induced Convulsion Assay to Determine GABAergic Defects in Caenorhabditis elegans
Authors:  Shruti Thapliyal and Kavita Babu, date: 09/05/2018, view: 2961, Q&A: 0
Pentylenetetrazole (PTZ) is a GABAA receptor antagonist and is used to monitor presynaptic defects in the release of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. PTZ is a competitive inhibitor of GABA, and prevents binding of GABA on the GABAA ...
