    Combinations of Patch-Clamp and Confocal Calcium Imaging in Acutely Isolated Adult Mouse Amygdala Brain Slices
    Authors:  Jianyang Du and Erin Elizabeth Koffman, date: 08/05/2018, view: 48, Q&A: 0
    Calcium imaging is a powerful technique in the study of neuronal physiology, as it avoids the enzyme treatment on neurons and is able to study the neuronal activities in vivo. Using calcium-imaging techniques, we are able to monitor the ...
    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: 67, 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 ...
    High-throughput YO-PRO-1 Uptake Assay for P2X7 Receptors Expressed in HEK Cells
    Authors:  Akira Karasawa and Toshimitsu Kawate, date: 07/20/2018, view: 180, Q&A: 0
    P2X7 receptors are extracellular ATP-gated ion channels that play broad physiological and pathological roles in animals (Sluyter, 2017). Activation of P2X7 receptors lead to the opening of membrane channels permeable for small cations like Na+ ...
    Quantifying Gene Expression Directly from FACS Using Hydrolysis (TaqMan) Probes on Flash-frozen Cells
    Authors:  Kirsten A. Copren, Oyang Teng, Cassandra J. Adams, Cláudia Bispo and Michael Lee, date: 04/20/2018, view: 731, Q&A: 0
    The TaqMan Gene Expression Cells-to-CtTM Kit enables reverse transcription directly from cell lysates without the need for isolating RNA. The recommended input range for the lysis reaction is between 10-105 cells, though the ...
    RNA Extraction from Wistar Rat Cochlea for qRT-PCR
    Authors:  Janaína Cândida Rodrigues and Rubens Vuono de Brito Neto, date: 12/05/2017, view: 1322, Q&A: 0
    Otology research has developed considerably in recent years and molecular analysis is crucial to identify metabolic pathways and therapeutic targets. However, the structure of the cochlea limits the amount of cell mass, and special care is required ...
    Cryopreservation of Human Serum
    Authors:  Yael Rosenberg-Hasson and Holden Maecker, date: 11/05/2015, view: 3124, Q&A: 0
    This protocol describes how to collect and aliquot human serum and store at -80 °C for future cytokine/chemokine/protein profile analysis.
    Please use personal protective equipment (PPE) as required when handling samples with potential ...
    Site Density Protocol
    Author:  Jun Huang, date: 07/05/2012, view: 5258, Q&A: 0
    The site densities of cell surface molecules are useful information for cell function analysis. Using antibody staining and commercial available calibration beads, this assay quantitatively determines the T cell receptor site density at the single T ...
    Quantitative Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) to Measure Serum Levels of Murine Anti-histone Antibodies
    Author:  Zheng Liu, date: 06/20/2012, view: 7360, Q&A: 0
    Autoimmune disease is characterized with the break of tolerance against self antigens. Anti-histone antibodies can be found in the majority of patients with system lupus erythematosus (SLE) and a number of lupus-prone mouse strains. This protocol ...
    Murine xenograft model
    Author:  FengZhi Liu, date: 06/05/2012, view: 12778, Q&A: 1
    This experiment is used to test the efficacies of chemo treatments or gene therapy in an in vivo system. In this protocol, the mouse xenograft model is used.
    RNP-IP (Original Method): Obtaining Majority RNA from RNA Binding Protein in the Nucleus
    Author:  FengZhi Liu, date: 05/20/2012, view: 14322, Q&A: 1
    Post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression is a ribonucleoprotein (RNP)-driven process, which involves RNA binding proteins (RBPs) and noncoding RNAs that regulate splicing, nuclear export, subcellular localization, mRNA stability and ...
