Delayed-matching-to-place Task in a Dry Maze to Measure Spatial Working Memory in Mice
Authors:  Xi Feng, Karen Krukowski, Timothy Jopson and Susanna Rosi, date: 07/05/2017, view: 1587, Q&A: 0
The delayed-matching-to-place (DMP) dry maze test is a variant of DMP water maze (Steele and Morris, 1999; Faizi et al., 2012) which measures spatial working/episodic-like learning and memory that depends on both hippocampal and cortical ...

In vivo Leukemogenesis Model Using Retrovirus Transduction
Authors:  Hiroshi Okuda and Akihiko Yokoyama, date: 12/05/2017, view: 602, Q&A: 0
Various genetic alterations such as chromosomal translocation cause leukemia. For examples, gene rearrangements of the mixed-lineage leukemia (MLL) gene generate MLL fusion genes, whose products are potent oncogenic drivers in ...

Delayed Spatial Win-shift Test on Radial Arm Maze
Authors:  Simone N. De Luca, Luba Sominsky and Sarah J. Spencer, date: 12/05/2016, view: 2932, Q&A: 0
The radial arm maze (RAM) is used to assess reference and working memory in rodents. This task relies on the rodent’s ability to orientate itself in the maze using extra-maze visual cues. This test can be used to investigate whether a rodent’s ...

Phagocytosis Assay to Measure Uptake of Necroptotic Cancer Cells by BMDCs
Authors:  Tania Løve Aaes, Dmitri V. Krysko and Peter Vandenabeele, date: 11/05/2016, view: 3116, Q&A: 0
This protocol is a flow cytometry-based method to measure the phagocytosis efficiency of necroptotic target cells by bone marrow-derived dendritic cells (BMDCs) in vitro (Aaes et al., 2016). The method is a slightly modified and ...
