    In vitro Induction and Detection of Acrosomal Exocytosis in Human Spermatozoa
    Authors:  Shenae L. Cafe, Amanda L. Anderson and Brett Nixon, date: 07/20/2020, view: 2509, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The acrosome reaction is a highly regulated exocytotic event that primes spermatozoa for successful fertilization. Upon induction, acrosomal exocytosis proceeds via a wave of vesiculation that radiates across the sperm head, destabilizing the acrosomal vesicle and resulting in the release of the acrosomal contents. Having shed their acrosome, ...
    Quantifying Podocytes and Parietal Epithelial Cells in Human Urine Using Liquid-based Cytology and WT1 Immunoenzyme Staining
    [Abstract] In glomerular disease, podocytes and parietal epithelial cells (PECs) are shed in the urine. Therefore, urinary podocytes and PECs are noninvasive biomarkers of glomerular disease. The purpose of this protocol is to employ immunocytochemistry to detect podocytes and PECs, using the WT1 antibody on liquid-based cytology slides.
