Qualitative in vivo Bioluminescence Imaging
[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 optimal use of laboratory animal resources, particularly the ethical principle of reduction in animal use, given its non-invasive nature, ensuring that ongoing biological processes can be studied over time in the same animal, without the need to euthanize groups of mice at specific time points. In this protocol, the luciferase imaging technique was developed to study the effect of co-inoculating pericytes (contractile, αSMA+ mesenchymal ... [摘要]  生物发光成像(BLI)技术是一种在体内实验室动物上进行分子成像的先进方法。 这种强大的技术广泛应用于研究各种生物过程,是实时探索肿瘤生长和转移扩散的理想工具。 该技术确保实验室动物资源的最佳利用,特别是减少动物使用的伦理原则,考虑到其非侵入性,确保可以在同一动物中随时间研究正在进行的生物过程,而无需安乐死 小鼠在特定的时间点。 在该方案中,开发了荧光素酶成像技术以研究共同接种周细胞(收缩性,αSMA + 间充质干细胞样细胞,位于微血管内的细胞)对生长和转移性扩散的影响。 卵巢癌使用侵袭性卵巢癌细胞系-OVCAR-5-作为例子。

【背景】生物发光成像(BLI)的原理是基于相对简单的生化过程的发光特性,即,荧光素酶介导的分子底物荧光素氧化产生光。在癌症研究中,BLI是一种流行的工具(Contag et ...

Embryonic Intravitreous Injection in Mouse
[Abstract]  Axons of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) relay visual information from the retina to lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) and superior colliculus (SC), which are two major image-forming visual nuclei. Wiring of these retinal projections completes before vision begins. However, there are few studies on retinal axons at embryonic stage due to technical difficulty. We developed a method of embryonic intravitreous injection of dyes in mice to visualize retinal projections to LGN and SC. This study opens up the possibility of understanding early visual circuit wiring in mice embryos. [摘要]  视网膜神经节细胞(RGC)的轴突将视觉信息从视网膜传递到外侧膝状核(LGN)和上丘(SC),这是两个主要的成像视觉核。 在视力开始之前完成这些视网膜投射的布线。 然而,由于技术困难,很少有关于胚胎期视网膜轴突的研究。 我们开发了一种胚胎玻璃体内注射染料的方法,用于观察LGN和SC的视网膜投射。 这项研究开辟了理解小鼠胚胎早期视觉电路布线的可能性。

【背景】早在胚胎第14.5天(E14.5)小鼠中,视网膜轴突开始向LGN和SC投射。 为了研究胚胎中的轴突投射,需要在注射手术前保持胚胎存活至少10小时,玻璃内注射染料。 以前的研究表明,胚胎可以使用含氧小鼠血清进行体外培养。 然而,营养多样性,氧饱和度和温度调节等问题会影响胚胎的生理状况。 在我们的研究中,我们通过胚胎中的子宫壁和眼睑进行玻璃体内注射,并在注射后将它们保存在子宫中。 从E15.5到E18.5很好地标记了对LGN和SC的视网膜轴突投射。

Preparation of Cerebellum Granule Neurons from Mouse or Rat Pups and Evaluation of Clostridial Neurotoxin Activity and Their Inhibitors by Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry
[Abstract]  Cerebellar Granule Neurons (CGN) from post-natal rodents have been widely used as a model to study neuronal development, physiology and pathology. CGN cultured in vitro maintain the same features displayed in vivo by mature cerebellar granule cells, including the development of a dense neuritic network, neuronal activity, neurotransmitter release and the expression of neuronal protein markers. Moreover, CGN represent a convenient model for the study of Clostridial Neurotoxins (CNT), most notably known as Tetanus and Botulinum neurotoxins, as they abundantly express both CNT receptors and intraneuronal substrates, i.e., Soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor activating protein receptors (SNARE proteins). Here, we describe a protocol for obtaining a highly pure ... [摘要]  来自产后啮齿动物的小脑颗粒神经元(CGN)已被广泛用作研究神经元发育,生理学和病理学的模型。 CGN体外培养维持成熟小脑颗粒细胞在体内显示的相同特征,包括发育致密的神经炎网络,神经元活动,神经递质释放和神经元的表达 蛋白质标记。 此外,CGN代表了梭菌神经毒素(CNT)研究的便利模型,最着名的是破伤风和肉毒杆菌神经毒素,因为它们大量表达CNT受体和神经元内基质, ie ,可溶性N-乙基马来酰亚胺 - 敏感因子激活蛋白受体(SNARE蛋白)。 在这里,我们描述了从出生后大鼠/小鼠获得高纯度CGN培养物的方案和用CNT中毒的简便方法。 我们还说明了评估CNT活性及其抑制的方便方法。

【背景】梭菌神经毒素(CNT)的大家族由破伤风神经毒素(TeNT)和肉毒杆菌神经毒素(BoNT)的多种变体形成,它们分别是破伤风和肉毒中毒的神经麻痹毒素(Schiavo et al。,2000; Johnson和Montecucco,2008; Rossetto et al。,2014)。 TeNT,七种BoNT血清型(BoNT / A至/ G)及其许多亚型是金属蛋白酶,通过切割SNARE蛋白(可溶性N-乙基马来酰亚胺敏感因子激活蛋白受体),三种必需蛋白质来阻断神经递质的释放而引起神经麻痹。控制突触小泡与突触前质膜的融合(Rossetto et al。,2014; ...
