A Protocol for Measurement of Intracellular pH
Authors:  Iman Saramipoor Behbahan, Matthew A. McBrian and Siavash K. Kurdistani, date: 01/20/2014, view: 20985, Q&A: 1
Intracellular pH (pHi) is an important physiological determinant of enzyme activity and cellular function (Kurkdjian and Guern, 1989). All proteins depend on a tightly regulated pH to maintain their structure and function. ...

Generation of Endothelial Cells from Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells
Authors:  Chun Liu, Linling Cheng, Christopher Li Chen and Nazish Sayed, date: 11/20/2018, view: 5881, Q&A: 5
Endothelial cells (ECs), as important constituent of blood vessel are crucial to maintaining vascular tone, and any dysfunction in ECs could lead to many diseases of the vascular system. Due to limited availability of human samples, most of our ...

Notch Ligand Binding Assay Using Flow Cytometry
Authors:  Shweta Varshney and Pamela Stanley, date: 12/05/2017, view: 9898, Q&A: 0
Notch signaling is an evolutionarily conserved signaling pathway that plays an indispensable role during development, and in the maintenance of homeostatic processes, in a wide variety of tissues (Kopan, 2012; Hori et al., 2013). The ...
