Analysis of Mouse Liver Glycogen Content
Author:  Peichuan Zhang, date: 05/20/2012, view: 38587, Q&A: 11
Liver is the major site for glycogen storage. Glycogen content can be significantly altered upon disruption of glucose homeostasis in metabolic syndromes, such as diabetes. Glycogen content can be determined by an acid-hydrolysis method ...
Alcian Blue – Alizarin Red Staining of Mouse Skeleton
Author:  Peichuan Zhang, date: 04/20/2012, view: 30663, Q&A: 8
Our lab has used the Alcian blue – Alizarin red staining method with certain modifications to characterize skeleton deformities in mice lacking Pek/Perk, encoding a translational control eIF2alpha kinase.

Chemotaxis and Jumping Assays in Nematodes
Authors:  Tiffany Baiocchi and Adler R. Dillman, date: 09/20/2015, view: 10156, Q&A: 0
Nematodes have sensitive olfactory perception, which is used to detect and differentiate many volatile odorants. Some odorants are attractive, others repulsive, and yet others evoke no particular response. Chemotaxis assays can be used to determine ...

Lipid Extraction from Mouse Feces
Authors:  Daniel Kraus, Qin Yang and Barbara B. Kahn, date: 01/05/2015, view: 15989, Q&A: 0
The analysis of feces composition is important for the study of energy metabolism, which comprises various measurements of energy intake, energy expenditure, and energy wasting. The current protocol describes how to measure energy-dense lipids in ...

Infection of Caenorhabditis elegans with Vesicular Stomatitis Virus via Microinjection
Authors:  Adam Martin, Emily A. Rex, Takao Ishidate, Rueyling Lin and Don B. Gammon, date: 11/20/2017, view: 7129, Q&A: 0
Over the past 15 years, the free-living nematode, Caenorhabditis elegans has become an important model system for exploring eukaryotic innate immunity to bacterial and fungal pathogens. More recently, infection models using either natural ...

Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and Catalase (CAT) Activity Assay Protocols for Caenorhabditis elegans
Authors:  Jing Zhang, Rui Chen, Zhenyang Yu and Lili Xue, date: 08/20/2017, view: 33806, Q&A: 0
Assays for superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) activities are widely employed to indicate antioxidant responses underlying the toxic effects of test chemicals. Yet, earlier studies mainly described the procedures as performed according to ...
