    Assessing the Presence of Hematopoietic Stem and Progenitor Cells in Mouse Spleen
    Authors:  Isabelle J. Marié, Lara Brambilla and David E. Levy, date: 06/05/2022, view: 644, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    Transplantation of hematopoietic material into recipient mice is an assay routinely used to determine the presence and function of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) in vivo. The principle of the method is to transplant donor cells being tested for HSPCs into a recipient mouse following bone marrow ablation and testing for

    Isolation and Culture of Cranial Neural Crest Cells from the First Branchial Arch of Mice
    Authors:  Hiroki Ueharu, Jingwen Yang, Yoshihiro Komatsu and Yuji Mishina, date: 04/05/2022, view: 623, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    Craniofacial anomalies (CFA) are a diverse group of deformities, which affect the growth of the head and face. Dysregulation of cranial neural crest cell (NCC) migration, proliferation, differentiation, and/or cell fate specification have been reported to contribute to CFA. Understanding of the mechanisms through which cranial NCCs contribute

    Skeletal Stem Cell Isolation from Cranial Suture Mesenchyme and Maintenance of Stemness in Culture
    Authors:  Takamitsu Maruyama, Hsiao-Man Ivy Yu and Wei Hsu, date: 03/05/2022, view: 780, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    Skeletal stem cells residing in the suture mesenchyme are responsible for calvarial development, homeostatic maintenance, and injury-induced repair. These naïve cells exhibit long-term self-renewal, clonal expansion, and multipotency. They possess osteogenic abilities to regenerate bones in a cell-autonomous manner and can directly replace

    From 3D to 2D: Harmonization of Protocols for Two-dimensional Cultures on Cell Culture Inserts of Intestinal Organoids from Various Species
    [Abstract]

    In the expanding field of intestinal organoid research, various protocols for three- and two-dimensional organoid-derived cell cultures exist. Two-dimensional organoid-derived monolayers are used to overcome some limitations of three-dimensional organoid cultures. They are increasingly used also in infection research, to study physiological

    An in vitro Mechanical Damage Model of Isolated Myofibers in a Floating Culture Condition
    Authors:  Yoshifumi Tsuchiya and Yusuke Ono, date: 01/05/2022, view: 1146, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    Muscle stem cells (satellite cells), located on the surface of myofibers, are rapidly activated from a quiescent state following skeletal muscle injury. Although satellite cell activation is an initial step in muscle regeneration, the stimulation of satellite cell activation by muscle injury remains to be elucidated. We recently established an in

    A Simple Method for the Isolation and in vitro Expansion of Highly Pure Mouse and Human Satellite Cells
    [Abstract]

    Satellite cells (SCs) are muscle stem cells capable of regenerating injured muscle. The study of their functional potential depends on the availability of methods for the isolation and expansion of pure SCs, which retain myogenic properties after serial passages in vitro. Here, we describe a protocol for the isolation and in vitro expansion of

    Isolation of CD31+ Bone Marrow Endothelial Cells (BMECs) from Mice
    Authors:  Alhaji Osman Smith, Seyram Yao Adzraku, Wen Ju, Jianlin Qiao, Kailin Xu and Lingyu Zeng, date: 11/20/2021, view: 1385, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    In the bone marrow microenvironment, endothelial cells (ECs) play a pivotal role in regulating the production of both growth and inhibiting factors. They are held together by adherence molecules that interact with hematopoietic progenitor cells. The study of ECs in the hematopoietic stem cell niche is limited due to the lack of efficient protocols

    Whole-mount Staining of Mouse Diaphragm Neuromuscular Junctions
    Authors:  Rula Sha, Zhenzhen Wang, Xue You, Yuguo Liu, Zhiqin Xie and Ying Feng, date: 11/05/2021, view: 1240, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    The neuromuscular junction (NMJ) is a specialized synapse that connects the terminal end of a motor neuron and a skeletal muscle fiber. Defects in NMJ cause abnormalities of neuromuscular transmission, leading to NMJ disorders. The mammalian diaphragm muscle is essential for respiration and has been widely used to study NMJ formation. Here, we

    Isolation of Myofibres and Culture of Muscle Stem Cells from Adult Zebrafish
    Authors:  Massimo Ganassi, Peter S. Zammit and Simon M. Hughes, date: 09/05/2021, view: 3175, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    Skeletal muscles generate force throughout life and require maintenance and repair to ensure efficiency. The population of resident muscle stem cells (MuSCs), termed satellite cells, dwells beneath the basal lamina of adult myofibres and contributes to both muscle growth and regeneration. Upon exposure to activating signals, MuSCs proliferate to

    Isolation of Single Cells from Mouse Periodontal Ligament
    Authors:  Jing Zhao and Paul Sharpe, date: 08/20/2021, view: 1770, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    The periodontal ligament (PDL) is an essential tissue connecting teeth and bone. It is a complex tissue specifically designed to absorb the forces of mastication; analysis of its multiple cell populations is important to understand its function and the cell changes associated with periodontal disease. Cells in the periodontal ligament are not
