    Visualization and Quantitation of Wg trafficking in the Drosophila Wing Imaginal Epithelium
    Authors:  Leonie Witte, Karen Linnemannstöns, Mona Honemann-Capito and Julia Christina Gross, date: 06/05/2021, view: 1385, Q&A: 0

    Secretory Wnt trafficking can be studied in the polarized epithelial monolayer of Drosophila wing imaginal discs (WID). In this tissue, Wg (Drosophila Wnt-I) is presented on the apical surface of its source cells before being internalized into the

    Optimized Immunostaining of Embryonic and Early Postnatal Mouse Brain Sections
    Authors:  Kawssar Harb, Michele Bertacchi and Michèle Studer, date: 01/05/2021, view: 1753, Q&A: 0

    The mammalian neocortex, the outer layer of the cerebrum and most recently evolved brain region, is characterized by its unique areal and laminar organization. Distinct cortical layers and areas can be identified by the protein expression of graded

    Multitarget Immunohistochemistry for Confocal and Super-resolution Imaging of Plant Cell Wall Polysaccharides
    Authors:  Kalina T. Haas, Methieu Rivière, Raymond Wightman and Alexis Peaucelle, date: 10/05/2020, view: 2758, Q&A: 0
    The plant cell wall (PCW) is a pecto-cellulosic extracellular matrix that envelopes the plant cell. By integrating extra-and intra-cellular cues, PCW mediates a plethora of essential physiological functions. Notably, it permits controlled and ...
    Application of Mechanical Forces on Drosophila Embryos by Manipulation of Microinjected Magnetic Particles
    Authors:  Arturo D’Angelo and Jérôme Solon, date: 05/05/2020, view: 1857, Q&A: 0
    Cells generate mechanical forces to shape tissues during morphogenesis. These forces can activate several biochemical pathways and trigger diverse cellular responses by mechano-sensation, such as differentiation, division, migration and apoptosis. ...
    Live Cell Imaging of Male Meiosis in Arabidopsis by a Landmark-based System
    Live cell imaging has tremendously promoted our understanding of cellular and subcellular processes such as cell division. Here, we present a step-by-step protocol for a robust and easy-to-use live cell imaging approach to study male meiosis in the ...
    Bimolecular Fluorescence Complementation (BiFC) for Studying Sarcomeric Protein Interactions in Drosophila
    Authors:  Océane Marescal, Frieder Schöck and Nicanor González-Morales, date: 04/05/2020, view: 2859, Q&A: 0
    Protein-protein interactions in Drosophila myofibrils are essential for their function and formation. Bimolecular Fluorescence Complementation (BiFC) is an effective method for studying protein interactions and localization. BiFC relies on ...
    Double Labeling of Microtubules and Actin Filaments in Maize Leaf Division Zone
    Authors:  Qiong Nan, Janette Mendoza and Michelle Renee Facette, date: 06/20/2019, view: 3055, Q&A: 1
    Maize leaves grow in a gradient. The base of young maize leaves contains a high proportion of symmetrically and asymmetrically dividing cells, making the leaf an effective model system for the study of cell division. Here, we describe a double ...
    Electron Microscopic Detection of Proteins and Protein Complexes in Mammalian Cells Using APEX-tagged, Conditionally Stable Nanobodies
    Authors:  Thomas E. Hall, James Rae, Nicholas Ariotti and Robert G. Parton, date: 11/20/2018, view: 3739, Q&A: 0
    The recent development of 3D electron microscopic techniques for cells and tissues has necessitated the development of new methods for the detection of proteins and protein-complexes in situ. The development of new genetic tags, such as the ...
    Dissection and Whole Mount Staining of Retina from Neonatal Mice
    Authors:  Mitsutaka Ogawa and Tetsuya Okajima, date: 10/05/2018, view: 5618, Q&A: 1
    Here we provide a detailed protocol for whole mount staining of mouse retina. This protocol was used to analyze retinal angiogenesis in newborn mice (Sawaguchi et al., 2017) by modifying the original protocols (Powner et al., 2012; ...
    Microscopic Observation of Subcellular GFP-tagged Protein Localization in Rice Anthers
    Authors:  Seijiro Ono and Ken-Ichi Nonomura, date: 08/05/2018, view: 3763, Q&A: 0
    This protocol demonstrates a simple method to determine the subcellular localization of fluorescence-tagged proteins on the vibratome sections of rice developing anthers. If a cell type-specific promoter is used to drive the tagged protein-encoding ...
