    A Method to Induce Brown/Beige Adipocyte Differentiation from Murine Preadipocytes
    Authors:  Andréa Livia Rocha, Beatriz Alves Guerra, Jeremie Boucher and Marcelo A. Mori, date: 12/20/2021, view: 526, Q&A: 0

    Adipocytes exhibit different morphological and functional characteristics, depending on their anatomical location, developmental origin, and stimulus. While white adipocytes tend to accumulate energy as triglycerides, brown and beige adipocytes tend

    High-throughput 3D Spheroid Formation and Effective Cardiomyocyte Differentiation from Human iPS Cells Using the Microfabric Vessels EZSPHERETM
    Authors:  Tatsuaki Miwa, Alimjan Idiris and Hiromichi Kumagai, date: 11/05/2021, view: 766, Q&A: 0

    High-throughput 3D spheroid formation from human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) can be easily performed using the unique microfabric vessels EZSPHERE, resulting in effective and large scale generation of differentiated cells such as

    Mouse Periosteal Cell Culture, in vitro Differentiation, and in vivo Transplantation in Tibial Fractures

    The periosteum covering the outer surface of bone contains skeletal stem/progenitor cells that can efficiently form cartilage and bone during bone repair. Several methods have been described to isolate periosteal cells based on bone scraping and/or

    Mechanical Fractionation of Cultured Neuronal Cells into Cell Body and Neurite Fractions
    Authors:  Ankita Arora, Raeann Goering, Hei-Yong G. Lo and J. Matthew Taliaferro, date: 06/05/2021, view: 2287, Q&A: 0

    Many cells contain spatially defined subcellular regions that perform specialized tasks enabled by localized proteins. The subcellular distribution of these localized proteins is often facilitated by the subcellular localization of the RNA molecules

    A Simple and Robust Protocol for in vitro Differentiation of Mouse Non-pathogenic T Helper 17 Cells from CD4+ T Cells
    Authors:  Siwen Kang, Ruohan Wu and Ruoning Wang, date: 05/20/2021, view: 2492, Q&A: 0

    Functional and mechanistic studies of CD4+ T cell lineages rely on robust methods of in vitro T cell polarization. Here, we report an optimized protocol for in vitro differentiation of a mouse non-pathogenic T helper 17 (TH17) cell lineage. Most of

    Rapid and Simplified Induction of Neural Stem/Progenitor Cells (NSCs/NPCs) and Neurons from Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hiPSCs)
    Authors:  Ryutaro Kajihara, Tadahiro Numakawa and Takumi Era, date: 02/05/2021, view: 2641, Q&A: 0

    Human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and their progeny displaying tissue-specific characteristics have paved the way for regenerative medicine and research in various fields such as the elucidation of the pathological mechanism of diseases

    Differentiation of Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hiPSCs) into Osteoclasts
    Author:  I-Ping Chen, date: 12/20/2020, view: 2392, Q&A: 0

    Defects in bone resorption by osteoclasts result in numerous rare genetic bone disorders as well as in some common diseases such as osteoporosis or osteopetrosis. The use of hiPSC-differentiated osteoclasts opens new avenues in this research field

    Protocol for Isolation, Stimulation and Functional Profiling of Primary and iPSC-derived Human NK Cells

    Natural killer (NK) cells are innate immune cells, characterized by their cytotoxic capacity, and chemokine and cytokine secretion upon activation. Human NK cells are identified by CD56 expression. Circulating NK cells can be further subdivided into

    Generation of Functional Mouse Hippocampal Neurons
    Authors:  Francesco Tomassoni-Ardori, Zhenyi Hong, Gianluca Fulgenzi and Lino Tessarollo, date: 08/05/2020, view: 4005, Q&A: 1
    Primary culture of mouse hippocampal neurons is a very useful in vitro model for studying neuronal development, axonal and dendritic morphology, synaptic functions, and many other neuronal features. Here we describe a step-by-step process ...
    Isolation, Culture, and Differentiation of Primary Myoblasts Derived from Muscle Satellite Cells
    Authors:  Kun Ho Kim, Jiamin Qiu and Shihuan Kuang, date: 07/20/2020, view: 4538, Q&A: 0
    The skeletal muscle is key for body mobility and motor performance, but aging and diseases often lead to progressive loss of muscle mass due to wasting or degeneration of muscle cells. Muscle satellite cells (MuSCs) represent a population of tissue ...
