Rapid Isolation of Total Protein from Arabidopsis Pollen
Authors:  Ming Chang and Shanjin Huang, date: 04/20/2017, view: 4136, Q&A: 0
Arabidopsis pollen is an excellent system for answering important biological questions about the establishment and maintenance of cellular polarity and polar cell growth, because these processes are amenable to the genetic and genomic ...
Direct Visualization and Quantification of the Actin Nucleation and Elongation Events in vitro by TIRF Microscopy
Authors:  Yuxiang Jiang and Shanjin Huang, date: 03/05/2017, view: 3906, Q&A: 0
Total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy is a powerful tool for visualizing the dynamics of actin filaments at single-filament resolution in vitro. Thanks to the development of various fluorescent probes, we can easily ...
