A Protocol for Measurement of Intracellular pH
Authors:  Iman Saramipoor Behbahan, Matthew A. McBrian and Siavash K. Kurdistani, date: 01/20/2014, view: 11151, Q&A: 1
Intracellular pH (pHi) is an important physiological determinant of enzyme activity and cellular function (Kurkdjian and Guern, 1989). All proteins depend on a tightly regulated pH to maintain their structure and function. ...

Notch Ligand Binding Assay Using Flow Cytometry
Authors:  Shweta Varshney and Pamela Stanley, date: 12/05/2017, view: 2479, Q&A: 0
Notch signaling is an evolutionarily conserved signaling pathway that plays an indispensable role during development, and in the maintenance of homeostatic processes, in a wide variety of tissues (Kopan, 2012; Hori et al., 2013). The ...
