    A Novel Dual Lentiviral CRISPR-based Transcriptional Activation System for Gene Expression Regulation in Neurons
    Authors:  Katherine E. Savell, Faraz A. Sultan and Jeremy J. Day, date: 09/05/2019, view: 854, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Robust and efficient gene expression control enables the study of a gene’s function in the central nervous system. Advances in CRISPR-based technology provide new avenues not only for gene editing, but for complex transcriptional control. Here, we describe a protocol to generate high-titer lentiviruses with neuron-optimized CRISPR-activation ...
    Primary Embryonic Rat Cortical Neuronal Culture and Chronic Rotenone Treatment in Microfluidic Culture Devices
    Authors:  Victor S. Van Laar, Beth Arnold and Sarah B Berman, date: 03/20/2019, view: 1382, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] In the study of neurodegenerative diseases, it is imperative to study the cellular and molecular changes associated with pathogenesis in the relevant cell type, central nervous system neurons. The unique compartmentalized morphology and bioenergetic needs of primary neurons present complications for their study in culture. Recent microculture ...
    Isolation of Neural Stem Cells from the Embryonic Mouse Hippocampus for in vitro Growth or Engraftment into a Host Tissue
    Authors:  Oksana Rybachuk, Olga Kopach, Tetyana Pivneva and Vitaliy Kyryk, date: 02/20/2019, view: 1714, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] For both stem cell research and treatment of the central nervous system disorders, neural stem/progenitor cells (NSPCs) represent an important breakthrough tool. In the expanded stem cell-based therapy use, NSPCs not only provide a powerful cell source for neural cell replacement but a useful model for developmental biology research. Despite ...
    Brain Tissue Culture of Per2::Luciferase Transgenic Mice for ex vivo Bioluminescence
    Authors:  Nora L. Salaberry and Jorge Mendoza, date: 07/05/2018, view: 2435, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] In circadian research, it is essential to be able to track a biological rhythm for several days with the minimum perturbation for the organisms or tissues. The use of transgenic mice lines, in which the luciferase reporter is coupled to a molecular clock protein (here PERIOD2), gives us the opportunity to follow the circadian activity in different ...
