Telomere Restriction Fragment (TRF) Analysis
Authors:  Ilgen Mender and Jerry W. Shay, date: 11/20/2015, view: 13133, Q&A: 0
While telomerase is expressed in ~90% of primary human tumors, most somatic tissue cells except transiently proliferating stem-like cells do not have detectable telomerase activity (Shay and Wright, 1996; Shay and Wright, 2001). Telomeres ...
Telomerase Repeated Amplification Protocol (TRAP)
Authors:  Ilgen Mender and Jerry W. Shay, date: 11/20/2015, view: 11893, Q&A: 1
Telomeres are found at the end of eukaryotic linear chromosomes, and proteins that bind to telomeres protect DNA from being recognized as double-strand breaks thus preventing end-to-end fusions (Griffith et al., 1999). However, due to the ...

The Chick Chorioallantoic Membrane (CAM) Assay as a Three-dimensional Model to Study Autophagy in Cancer Cells
The chick chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) is an extra-embryonic organ and thus well accessible for seeding and harvesting 3D cell cultures. Samples from CAM assays are suitable for protein and gene expression analysis as well as for ...

GFP-Grb2 Translocation Assay Using High-content Imaging to Screen for Modulators of EGFR-signaling
Authors:  Julia Petschnigg and Robin Ketteler, date: 09/05/2017, view: 3833, Q&A: 0
High-content screening is a useful tool to understand complex cellular processes and to identify genes, proteins or small molecule compounds that modulate such pathways. High-content assays monitor the function of a protein or pathway by visualizing ...
