    Authors:  Surya P. Aryal, Xu Fu, Abdullah A. Masud, Khaga R. Neupane and Christopher I. Richards, date: 05/20/2021, view: 982, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    Single molecule imaging and spectroscopy are powerful techniques for the study of a wide range of biological processes including protein assembly and trafficking. However, in vivo single molecule imaging of biomolecules has been challenging because of difficulties associated with sample preparation and technical challenges associated with

    A Method to Quantify Drosophila Behavioral Activities Induced by GABAA Agonist Muscimol
    Author:  M. Rezaul Karim, date: 04/20/2021, view: 571, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract]

    Muscimol is a psychoactive isoxazole derived from the mushroom Amanita muscaria. As a potent GABAA receptor agonist, muscimol suppresses the activity of the central nervous system, reduces anxiety and induces sleep. We investigated the effects of muscimol on Drosophila behavior. Drosophila behavioral assays are powerful tools that are used to

    Identification of Heteroreceptors Complexes and Signal Transduction Events Using Bioluminescence Resonance Energy Transfer (BRET)
    Authors:  Irene Reyes-Resina, Jasmina Jiménez, Gemma Navarro and Rafael Franco, date: 10/05/2019, view: 2337, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Detecting protein-protein interactions by co-immunoprecipitation provided a major advancement in the immunology research field. In the G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) research field, colocalization and co-immunoprecipitation were used to detect interactions, but doubts arose due to specificity of the antibodies (monoclonal in the case of ...
