Preparation of Mitochondria from Candida albicans Authors:  Victoria L Hewitt, Trevor Lithgow and Ana Traven, date: 02/20/2013, view: 4887, Q&A: 0
Based on the methods of (Daum et al., 1982) and (Hewitt et al., 2012), we have established the use of Candida albicans as a new model system to study mitochondrial biogenesis. This dimorphic yeast provides an excellent system to investigate the coordination of mitochondrial biogenesis with other cellular networks ...

Candida albicans Mitochondrial Protein Import Assay Authors:  Victoria L Hewitt, Trevor Lithgow and Ana Traven, date: 02/20/2013, view: 4676, Q&A: 0
We have established the use of Candida albicans as a new model system to study mitochondrial biogenesis. This dimorphic yeast provides an excellent system to investigate the coordination of mitochondrial biogenesis with other cellular networks including cellular metabolism and the cell cycle. Unlike the model lab yeast Saccharomyces ...

Measurement of Airway Responsiveness on Vigil and Unrestrained Mouse Authors:  François Daubeuf, Laurent Reber and Nelly Frossard, date: 02/20/2013, view: 4917, Q&A: 0
Airway hyperresponsiveness to methacholine is an important characteristic of asthma. This protocol describes how to measure airway response to methacholine in vigil and unrestraint mouse. The enhanced pause (PenH) is an index of the airway response to increasing doses of methacholine recorded by whole-body barometric plethysmography.

Construction of NSG-CTL Mice Authors:  Bernard Levin, Greg Bristol, Zoran Galic and Scott G. Kitchen, date: 02/20/2013, view: 6082, Q&A: 0
The NSG-CTL mouse model is a humanized mouse model that allows the generation of peripheral human immune responses, particularly CD8+ Cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) responses, and serves as an effective model for studying gene-based therapies. Natural antigen-specific T cell responses in humanized mice are relatively weak and this model was ...

Construction of Chromosomal In-Frame Deletion Mutants in Rhodobacter capsulatus Authors:  Molly M. Leung and John Thomas Beatty, date: 02/20/2013, view: 6912, Q&A: 0
Markerless chromosomal in-frame deletion mutants are often used to avoid polar effects, conserve antibiotic resistance markers or make multiple mutations. This protocol capitalizes on the sacB gene (lethal in the presence of sucrose), for selection against a single cross-over event, on a suicide vector (contains no Rhodobacter capsulatus ...

Rhodobacter capsulatus Gene Transfer Agent Transduction Assay Authors:  Molly M. Leung and John Thomas Beatty, date: 02/20/2013, view: 4997, Q&A: 0
The gene transfer agent (GTA) is a bacteriophage-like particle that transfers genomic DNA from a donor to a recipient bacterium. The Rhodobacter capsulatus GTA (RcGTA) was the first to be studied and this protocol has been optimized for RcGTA transduction, although it could be modified for other bacteria containing a GTA. The RcGTA ...
