    Isolation and Efficient Maize Protoplast Transformation
    Authors:  Lina Gomez-Cano, Fan Yang and Erich Grotewold, date: 08/20/2019, view: 462, Q&A: 0
    Establishing plant gene function and the study of gene expression regulation often require that genes (or gene variants) are introduced into plants and their activity somehow assayed. Some plants (e.g., Arabidopsis) are easily ...
    Generation of Endothelial Cells from Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells
    Authors:  Chun Liu, Linling Cheng, Christopher Li Chen and Nazish Sayed, date: 11/20/2018, view: 1921, Q&A: 4
    Endothelial cells (ECs), as important constituent of blood vessel are crucial to maintaining vascular tone, and any dysfunction in ECs could lead to many diseases of the vascular system. Due to limited availability of human samples, most of our ...
    Isolation of Murine Brain and Lung Microvascular Endothelial Cells
    Authors:  Ailing Zhang, Shogo Sawaguchi, Entzu Wan, Mitsutaka Ogawa and Tetsuya Okajima, date: 08/20/2018, view: 1917, Q&A: 0
    This protocol describes how to isolate murine endothelial cells from newborn mice brain and 3-month-old mice lung by modifying the original protocols (Sobczak et al., 2010; Ruck et al., 2014). We have used the protocol to analyze ...
    Protocol for the Isolation and Super-resolution dSTORM Imaging of RyR2 in Cardiac Myocytes
    Authors:  Yufeng Hou, Christopher Le, Christian Soeller and William E. Louch, date: 08/05/2018, view: 2327, Q&A: 0
    Since its inception, super-resolution microscopy has played an increasingly important role in the discovery and characterization of nanoscale biological structure. dSTORM, which is one of the most commonly applied methods, relies on stochastic ...
    Isolation of Phages Infecting Marinomonas mediterranea by an Enrichment Protocol
    Authors:  Patricia Lucas-Elío, Sukrit Silas and Antonio Sanchez-Amat, date: 07/05/2018, view: 2999, Q&A: 0
    This protocol describes the isolation of lytic phages infecting the marine bacterium Marinomonas mediterranea from samples of seawater, sand, and seagrass from Posidonia oceanica meadows. It includes the collection of samples, the ...
    A Quick and Easy Method for Making Competent Escherichia coli Cells for Transformation Using Rubidium Chloride
    Authors:  Nidhi Sharma, M. Ximena Anleu Gil and Diego Wengier, date: 11/05/2017, view: 10272, Q&A: 0
    This protocol describes a quick and efficient method to make competent E. coli cells for transformation using rubidium chloride. Commercial competent cells are expensive and this protocol provides a cheaper alternative to them.
    Isolation of Endothelial Cells from Mice
    Author:  Huan Pang, date: 04/20/2012, view: 19358, Q&A: 3
    Endothelial cells line the entire circulatory system, from the heart to the smallest capillary. In this protocol, attaining and maintaining vitality of the organ is critical. Minimizing the processing time between removing the organ and beginning ...
    Make Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells from Cords
    Author:  Huan Pang, date: 04/20/2012, view: 10661, Q&A: 0
    Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) can be isolated from normal human umbilical veins, and are responsive to cytokine stimulation by expressing cell adhesion molecules. These cell systems are commonly used for physiological and ...
    Cell Culture Transfection for Production and Purification of Wnt Ligands
    Author:  Lili Jing, date: 01/20/2012, view: 16149, Q&A: 0
    Wnt ligand proteins are extremely difficult to purify and enrich in vitro. This protocol uses Wnt11r protein as an example to illustrate how to use 293T cells to produce secreted Wnt11r and collect it in vitro for further ...
    Isolation of Primary Human Keratinocytes from Foreskin
    Author:  Jason Reuter, date: 12/20/2011, view: 12972, Q&A: 0
    Keratinocytes are the primary constituents of human skin, the functional barrier between our bodies and the external environment. The balance between keratinocyte differentiation and self-renewal is crucial to skin homeostasis. Primary keratinocyte ...
