Detecting Establishment of Shared Blood Supply in Parabiotic Mice by Caudal Vein Glucose Injection Xin Liu1, Xue Bai1, Mingqi Li1, Huimin Li1, Yong Zhang1,2, Baofeng Yang1,3 1Department of Pharmacology, The State-Province Key Laboratories of Biomedicine-Pharmaceutics of China, Key Laboratory of Cardiovascular Research, Ministry of Education, College of Pharmacy, Harbin Medical University, 2Institute of Metabolic Disease, Heilongjiang Academy of Medical Science, 3Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Melbourne School of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences University of Melbourne Here we describe a new method of detecting successful establishment of shared blood circulation of two parabionts through a caudal vein injection of glucose, which causes minimal damage and is not fatal to the parabionts.
An Optic Nerve Crush Injury Murine Model to Study Retinal Ganglion Cell Survival Zhongshu Tang1, Shuihua Zhang1,2, Chunsik Lee1, Anil Kumar1, Pachiappan Arjunan1, Yang Li1, Fan Zhang1, Xuri Li1 1National Eye Institute, NIH, 2Ophthalmology Department, The Second Hospital of Harbin Medical University This protocol shows how to retrogradely label retinal ganglion cells, and how to subsequently make an optic nerve crush injury in order to analyze retinal ganglion cell survival and apoptosis. It is an experimental disease model for different types of optic neuropathy, including glaucoma.
