Large-scale Recording of Neurons by Movable Silicon Probes in Behaving Rodents Marie Vandecasteele1,2, S. M.1, Sébastien Royer1,3, Mariano Belluscio1, Antal Berényi1, Kamran Diba1,4, Shigeyoshi Fujisawa1, Andres Grosmark1, Dun Mao1, Kenji Mizuseki1, Jagdish Patel1, Eran Stark1, David Sullivan1, Brendon Watson1, György Buzsáki1 1Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience, University of New Jersey, 2Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Biology, Collège de France, 3Janelia Farm Research Campus, Howards Hughes Medical Institute, 4Deptartment of Psychology, University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee We describe methods for large-scale recording of multiple single units and local field potential in behaving rodents with silicon probes. Drive fabrication, probe attachment to the drive and probe implantation processes are illustrated in sufficient details for easy replication.
Surface Functionalization of Hepatitis E Virus Nanoparticles Using Chemical Conjugation Methods Chun Chieh Chen*1, Marie Stark*1, Mo Baikoghli1, R. Holland Cheng1 1Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, University of California Davis We have engineered the capsid protein of hepatitis E virus as a theranostic nanoparticle (HEVNP). HEVNP self-assembles into a stable icosahedral cage in mucosal delivery. Here, we describe the modification of HEVNPs for tumor targeting by mutating surface-exposed residues to cysteines, which conjugate synthetic ligands that specifically bind tumor cells.
