Single-molecule Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (smFISH) for RNA Detection in Adherent Animal Cells
Authors:  Gal Haimovich and Jeffrey E. Gerst, date: 11/05/2018, view: 3091, Q&A: 1
Transcription and RNA decay play critical roles in the process of gene expression and the ability to accurately measure cellular mRNA levels is essential for understanding this regulation. Here, we describe a single-molecule fluorescent in situ ...
Plasmid Extract from Budding Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
Author:  Gal Haimovich, date: 07/20/2018, view: 2006, Q&A: 0
Plasmids are widely used tools in yeast research. In many cases, plasmid libraries are used in genetic screens or in yeast two hybrid screens. In such cases, it is necessary to extract plasmids carrying unknown genetic elements from positive clones ...

Quantification of Cutaneous Ionocytes in Small Aquatic Organisms
Authors:  Garfield T. Kwan, Shane H. Finnerty, Nicholas C. Wegner and Martin Tresguerres, date: 05/05/2019, view: 206, Q&A: 0
Aquatic organisms have specialized cells called ionocytes that regulate the ionic composition, osmolarity, and acid/base status of internal fluids. In small aquatic organisms such as fishes in their early life stages, ionocytes are typically found ...
