Chick Neural Tube Explant Culture
Authors:  Zhanna Alekseenko, Elisabet Andersson and José M. Dias, date: 10/05/2015, view: 8727, Q&A: 0
The neural tube explant culture technique allows in vitro culturing of small pieces of neural tissue isolated from e.g., chick or mouse embryonic tissue in a matrix of collagen for defined periods of time. This method can be used ...

Mouse Periosteal Cell Culture, in vitro Differentiation, and in vivo Transplantation in Tibial Fractures

The periosteum covering the outer surface of bone contains skeletal stem/progenitor cells that can efficiently form cartilage and bone during bone repair. Several methods have been described to isolate periosteal cells based on bone scraping and/or

Tail Tendon Break Time for the Assessment of Aging and Longitudinal Healthspan in Mice
Authors:  Anne S. Haefke and Collin Yvès Ewald, date: 12/05/2020, view: 2097, Q&A: 0

The successful evaluation of longevity-promoting interventions requires the identification of reliable biomarkers of healthspan and lifespan. Non-enzymatic glycation end-products accumulate on collagens during the aging process, leading to the
