    Measurement of Reactive Oxygen and Nitrogen Species in Living Cells Using the Probe 2',7'-Dichlorodihydrofluorescein
    Authors:  Waleska Dornas and Detlef Schuppan, date: 12/20/2021, view: 1115, Q&A: 0

    Reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species (RONS) are involved in programmed cell death in the context of numerous degenerative and chronic diseases. In particular, the ability of cells to maintain redox homeostasis is necessary for an adaptive cellular response to adverse conditions that can cause damage to proteins and DNA, resulting

    Precise Targeting of Single Microelectrodes to Orientation Pinwheel Centers
    Authors:  Xue Mei Song, Ming Li, Tao Xu, Dewen Hu and Anna Wang Roe, date: 06/05/2020, view: 1963, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] In the mammalian visual system, early stages of visual form perception begin with orientation selective neurons in primary visual cortex (V1). In many species (including humans, monkeys, tree shrews, cats, and ferrets), these neurons are organized in pinwheel-like orientation columns. To study the functional organization within orientation ...
    A Novel Dual Lentiviral CRISPR-based Transcriptional Activation System for Gene Expression Regulation in Neurons
    Authors:  Katherine E. Savell, Faraz A. Sultan and Jeremy J. Day, date: 09/05/2019, view: 4916, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Robust and efficient gene expression control enables the study of a gene’s function in the central nervous system. Advances in CRISPR-based technology provide new avenues not only for gene editing, but for complex transcriptional control. Here, we describe a protocol to generate high-titer lentiviruses with neuron-optimized CRISPR-activation ...
    Generation of Mutant Pigs by Direct Pronuclear Microinjection of CRISPR/Cas9 Plasmid Vectors
    Authors:  Chin-kai Chuang, Ching-Fu Tu and Chien-Hong Chen, date: 06/05/2017, view: 9912, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] A set of Cas9 and single guide CRISPR RNA expression vectors was constructed. Only a very simple procedure was needed to prepare specific single-guide RNA expression vectors with high target accuracy. Since the de novo zygotic transcription had been detected in mouse embryo at the 1-cell stage, the plasmid DNA vectors encoding Cas9 and ...
