    [Abstract] Inflammatory Ly6Chi monocytes can give rise to distinct mononuclear myeloid cells in the tumor microenvironment, such as monocytic myeloid-derived suppressor cells (Mo-MDSC), immature macrophages, M2-like tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs), M1-like TAMs or monocyte-derived dendritic cells (Mo-DCs). This protocol describes a method to ...

    Authors:  Nikita Sharma, Geeta Arya, R. Mankamna Kumari, Nidhi Gupta and Surendra Nimesh, date: 01/05/2019, view: 218, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Silver nanoparticles have been widely studied to possess antimicrobial as well as anticancer activity, and have found its applications in various fields including pharmaceutical industry, diagnostics, drug delivery, food industry, and others. For this purpose, several cell proliferation assays are widely used for the evaluation of anticancer ...
    Monitoring Natural Killer Cell Function in Human Ovarian Cancer Cells of Ascitic Fluid
    Authors:  Vikash Kumar and Asok Mukhopadhyay, date: 12/20/2018, view: 207, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Natural killer (NK) cells are the major effectors of the innate immune system when activated resulting in modulation of immune response of the host defense through target cell lysis and secretion of cytokines. Precise functions of NK cells are essential for the treatment outcome of different virus infections and malignant diseases. NK cells impart ...
    Cluster Analysis of Endogenous HER2 and HER3 Receptors in SKBR3 Cells
    [Abstract] The Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (HER) family of receptor tyrosine kinases consists of four, single pass, transmembrane receptor homologs (HER1-4) that act to regulate many critical processes in normal and tumor cells. HER2 is overexpressed in many tumors, and the deregulated proliferation of cancerous cells is driven by cooperation with ...
    A Functionally Robust Phenotypic Screen that Identifies Drug Resistance-associated Genes Using 3D Cell Culture
    Authors:  Sun-Young Lee and Mina J. Bissell, date: 11/20/2018, view: 639, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Drug resistance is a major obstacle in cancer treatment: A case in point is the failure of cancer patients to respond to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) of EGFR, a receptor that is highly expressed in many cancers. Identification of the targets and delineation of mechanisms of drug resistance remain major challenges. Traditional pharmacological ...
    In-vivo gp100-specific Cytotoxic CD8+ T Cell Killing Assay
    [Abstract] Cytotoxic CD8+ T lymphocytes (CTLs) represent a crucial component of the adaptive immune system and play a prominent role in the anti-tumor immune responses of both mice and humans.

    Cytotoxic CD8+ T cells are responsible for the lysis of cells expressing peptides associated with MHC class I molecules and derived ...
    Ex vivo Culture and Lentiviral Transduction of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Samples
    [Abstract] To assess oncogenic potential, classical transformation assays are based on cell line models. However, cell line based models do not reflect the complexity of human tissues. We thus developed an inducible expression system for gene expression in ex vivo human tissues, which maintain native tissue architecture, such as epithelia and ...
    Protocol for in situ Proximity Ligation Assay (PLA) and Microscopy Analysis of Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) Homodimerization
    Authors:  Keiichi Ota and Taishi Harada, date: 11/05/2018, view: 478, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Oncogenic drivers play central roles in tumorigenesis as well as in tumor cell survival and proliferation. Mutations of the epidermal growth factor receptor gene (EGFR) that result in constitutive activation of the receptor tyrosine kinase have been identified as oncogenic drivers in a subset of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). ...
    Detection of Cell Death in Planarians
    Authors:  Nídia de Sousa and Teresa Adell, date: 10/05/2018, view: 626, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Planarians are freshwater flatworms, well known for their ability to regenerate a complete organism from any piece of their body. Furthermore, planarians are constantly growing and degrowing throughout their lives, maintaining a functional and proportioned body. These properties rely on the presence of a population of adult stem cells and on the ...
    Qualitative in vivo Bioluminescence Imaging
    Authors:  Devbarna Sinha, Zalitha Pieterse and Pritinder Kaur, date: 09/20/2018, view: 791, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Bioluminescence imaging (BLI) technology is an advanced method of carrying out molecular imaging on live laboratory animals in vivo. This powerful technique is widely-used in studying a variety of biological processes, and it has been an ideal tool in exploring tumor growth and metastatic spread in real-time. This technique ensures the ...
