Whole-genome Identification of Transcriptional Start Sites by Differential RNA-seq in Bacteria
Authors:  Ramón Cervantes-Rivera and Andrea Puhar, date: 09/20/2020, view: 4317, Q&A: 0
Gene transcription in bacteria often starts some nucleotides upstream of the start codon. Identifying the specific Transcriptional Start Site (TSS) is essential for genetic manipulation, as in many cases upstream of the start codon there are ...
Plaque Assay to Determine Invasion and Intercellular Dissemination of Shigella flexneri in TC7 Human Intestinal Epithelial Cells
Authors:  Atin Sharma and Andrea Puhar, date: 07/05/2019, view: 4102, Q&A: 0
Shigella flexneri invades the epithelial cells lining the gut lumen and replicates intracellularly. The specialized Type III Secretion System (T3SS) and its effector proteins, encoded on a large virulence plasmid, assist the bacterium to ...

Quantification of Neisseria meningitidis Adherence to Human Epithelial Cells by Colony Counting
To cause an infection, the human specific pathogen Neisseria meningitides must first colonize the nasopharynx. Upon tight interaction with the mucosal epithelium, N. meningitidis may cross the epithelial cellular barrier, reach the ...

Cytosolic and Nuclear Delivery of CRISPR/Cas9-ribonucleoprotein for Gene Editing Using Arginine Functionalized Gold Nanoparticles
Authors:  Rubul Mout and Vincent M. Rotello, date: 10/20/2017, view: 11177, Q&A: 1
In this protocol, engineered Cas9-ribonucleoprotein (Cas9 protein and sgRNA, together called Cas9-RNP) and gold nanoparticles are used to make nanoassemblies that are employed to deliver Cas9-RNP into cell cytoplasm and nucleus. Cas9 protein is ...

Purification of the Bacterial Amyloid “Curli” from Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium and Detection of Curli from Infected Host Tissues

Microbiologists are learning to appreciate the importance of “functional amyloids” that are produced by numerous bacterial species and have impacts beyond the microbial world. These structures are used by bacteria to link together,

Electrophysiological Measurements of Isolated Blood Vessels
Authors:  Samuel A Molina, Daniela Maier-Begandt, Brant E Isakson and Michael Koval, date: 03/20/2022, view: 687, Q&A: 0

The lumen of blood vessels is covered by endothelial cells, which regulate their permeability to ions and solutes. Endothelial permeability depends on the vascular bed and cell phenotype, and is influenced by different disease states. Most
