Use of MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry and a Custom Database to Characterize Bacteria Indigenous to a Unique Cave Environment (Kartchner Caverns, AZ, USA) Lin Zhang1, Katleen Vranckx2, Koen Janssens2, Todd R. Sandrin1 1School of Mathematical and Natural Sciences, Arizona State University, 2Applied Maths NV This work details procedures for rapid identification of bacteria using MALDI-TOF MS. The identification procedures include spectrum acquisition, database construction, and follow up analyses. Two identification methods, similarity coefficient-based and biomarker-based methods, are presented.
A Multi-hole Cryovial Eliminates Freezing Artifacts when Muscle Tissues are Directly Immersed in Liquid Nitrogen Yizhong Huang1, Maozhang He1, Qingjie Zeng1, Lin Li1, Zhen Zhang1, Junwu Ma1, Yanyu Duan1 1State Key Laboratory for Pig Genetic Improvement and Production Technology, Jiangxi Agricultural University This protocol describes a procedure to freeze muscle tissues by plunging them directly into liquid nitrogen. This protocol also highlights a new cryovial that can avoid the "blanket effect" of nitrogen gas when liquid nitrogen contacts the tissue surface of a specimen.
