    Plasma Membrane Wounding and Repair Assays for Eukaryotic Cells

    Damage to the plasma membrane and loss of membrane integrity are detrimental to eukaryotic cells. It is, therefore, essential that cells possess an efficient membrane repair system to survive. However, the different cellular and molecular mechanisms

    A Highly Sensitive Method to Efficiently Profile the Histone Modifications of FFPE Samples
    Authors:  Linxuan Zhao, Vamsi Krishna Polavarapu, Ram Prakash Yadav, Pengwei Xing and Xingqi Chen, date: 05/20/2022, view: 758, Q&A: 0

    The majority of biopsies in both basic research and translational cancer studies are preserved in the format of archived formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples. Profiling histone modifications in archived FFPE tissues is critically

    A Flow Cytometry-Based Method for Analyzing DNA End Resection in G0- and G1-Phase Mammalian Cells

    DNA double strand breaks (DSBs) constantly arise in cells during normal cellular processes or upon exposure to genotoxic agents, and are repaired mostly by homologous recombination (HR) and non-homologous end joining (NHEJ). One key determinant of

    Measurement of Cell Intrinsic TGF-β Activation Mediated by the Integrin αvβ8
    Authors:  Robert Ian Seed and Stephen Lloyd Nishimura, date: 04/20/2022, view: 1226, Q&A: 0

    Transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β) is a multi-functional cytokine that plays a significant role in multiple diseases, including fibrosis and tumor progression. Whilst the biologic effects of TGF-β are well characterized, it is unclear

    Low-viscosity Matrix Suspension Culture for Human Colorectal Epithelial Organoids and Tumoroids
    Authors:  Tao Tan, Yumiko Hirokawa, Jordan Clarke, Anuratha Sakthianandeswaren and Oliver M. Sieber, date: 04/20/2022, view: 1007, Q&A: 0

    Three-dimensional culture of human normal colorectal epithelium and cancer tissue as organoids and tumoroids has transformed the study of diseases of the large intestine. A widely used strategy for generating patient-derived colorectal organoids and

    Conditional Human BRD4 Knock-In Transgenic Mouse Genotyping and Protein Isoform Detection
    Authors:  Michael Paul Lewis, Shwu-Yuan Wu and Cheng-Ming Chiang, date: 04/05/2022, view: 576, Q&A: 0

    Bromodomain-containing protein 4 (BRD4) is an acetyl-lysine reader protein and transcriptional regulator implicated in chromatin dynamics and cancer development. Several BRD4 isoforms have been detected in humans with the long isoform (BRD4-L,

    Image-based Quantification of Macropinocytosis Using Dextran Uptake into Cultured Cells
    Authors:  Anh H. Le and Laura M. Machesky, date: 04/05/2022, view: 744, Q&A: 0

    Macropinocytosis is an evolutionarily conserved process, which is characterized by the formation of membrane ruffles and the uptake of extracellular fluid. We recently demonstrated a role for CYFIP-related Rac1 Interactor (CYRI) proteins in

    Single-cell Damagenome Profiling by Linear Copying and Splitting based Whole Genome Amplification (LCS-WGA)
    Authors:  Yichi Niu, Qiangyuan Zhu and Chenghang Zong, date: 03/20/2022, view: 663, Q&A: 0

    Spontaneous DNA damage frequently occurs on the human genome, and it could alter gene expression by inducing mutagenesis or epigenetic changes. Therefore, it is highly desired to profile DNA damage distribution on the human genome and identify the

    3D-Structured Illumination Microscopy of Centrosomes in Human Cell Lines

    The centrosome is the main microtubule-organizing center of animal cells, and is composed of two barrel-shaped microtubule-based centrioles embedded in protein dense pericentriolar material. Compositional and architectural re-organization of the

    Three-dimensional Models of the Nasopharynx for the Study of Epstein-Barr Virus Infection

    The ubiquitous and cancer-associated Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is associated with nearly all cases of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Nasopharyngeal tissue is comprised of both pseudostratified and stratified epithelium, which are modeled in
