Biolistic Bombardment for Co-expression of Proteins Fused to YFP and mRFP in Leaf Epidermal Cells of Phaseolus vulgaris ‘Red Mexican’
Author:  Malgorzata Lichocka, date: 01/05/2014, view: 12216, Q&A: 0
Biolistic bombardment is based on coating of tungsten or gold particles with DNA and delivery of these “biobullets” into living plant cells under high pressure (Sudowe and Reske-Kunz, 2013). This method enables transient expression of a DNA ...
Subcellular Localization Experiments and FRET-FLIM Measurements in Plants
Authors:  Malgorzata Lichocka and Elmon Schmelzer, date: 01/05/2014, view: 15598, Q&A: 0
Determining the localization of proteins within living cells may be very essential for understanding their biological function. Usually for analysis of subcellular localization, a construct encoding the translational fusion of a cDNA of interest ...

Apoplastic Expression of CARD1-ecto Domain in Nicotiana benthamiana and Purification from the Apoplastic Fluids
Authors:  Nobuaki Ishihama, Anuphon Laohavisit, Kaori Takizawa and Ken Shirasu, date: 04/20/2022, view: 1148, Q&A: 0

The protein expression and purification process is an essential initial step for biochemical analysis of a protein of interest. Traditionally, heterologous protein expression systems (such as E. coli, yeast, insect cells, and cell-free) are employed

Split-luciferase Complementation Imaging Assay to Study Protein-protein Interactions in Nicotiana benthamiana
Authors:  Liping Wang, Gang Yu, Alberto P. Macho and Rosa Lozano-Durán, date: 12/05/2021, view: 2436, Q&A: 0

The experimental identification of protein-protein interactions (PPIs) is critical to understand protein function. Thus, a plethora of sensitive and versatile approaches have been developed to detect PPIs in vitro or in vivo, such as protein
