In utero Electroporation of Mouse Embryo Brains
Author:  Xuecai Ge, date: 07/20/2012, view: 25696, Q&A: 2
This is a non-invasive technique to introduce transgenes into developing brains. In this technique, DNA is injected into the lateral ventricle of the embryonic brains, and is incorporated into the cells through electroporation. Embryos then continue ...
Immunofluorescence Staining on Mouse Embryonic Brain Sections
Author:  Xuecai Ge, date: 06/05/2012, view: 21278, Q&A: 0
This protocol comprises the entire process of immunofluorescence staining on mouse embryonic brains, starting from tissue preparation to mounting of the tissue sections.

Preparation of Cerebellum Granule Neurons from Mouse or Rat Pups and Evaluation of Clostridial Neurotoxin Activity and Their Inhibitors by Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry
Authors:  Domenico Azarnia Tehran and Marco Pirazzini, date: 07/05/2018, view: 7684, Q&A: 0
Cerebellar Granule Neurons (CGN) from post-natal rodents have been widely used as a model to study neuronal development, physiology and pathology. CGN cultured in vitro maintain the same features displayed in vivo by mature ...

Analysis of Myosin II Minifilament Orientation at Epithelial Zonula Adherens
Authors:  Magdalene Michael, Xuan Liang and Guillermo A. Gomez, date: 12/05/2016, view: 7036, Q&A: 0
Non-muscle myosin II (NMII) form bipolar filaments, which bind F-actin to exert cellular contractility during physiological processes (Vicente-Manzanares et al., 2009). Using a combinatorial approach to fluorescently label both N- and ...

Preparation and Immunofluorescence Staining of the Trachea in Drosophila Larvae and Pupae
Author:  Feng Chen, date: 05/05/2016, view: 16657, Q&A: 0
The Drosophila melanogaster trachea is a branched network of rigid chitin-lined tubes that ramify throughout the body and functions as the fly’s respiratory organ. Small openings at the ends of the tracheal tubes allow gas ...

Isolation and Primary Cell Culture of Mouse Dorsal Root Ganglion Neurons
Authors:  Theresa Heinrich, Christian A. Hübner and Ingo Kurth, date: 04/05/2016, view: 24975, Q&A: 0
We here provide a detailed protocol for the isolation and culture of primary mouse sensory neurons. The cell bodies of sensory afferent pseudounipolar neurons are located in dorsal root ganglia (DRGs) along the vertebral column. Dissected mouse DRGs ...
