A Simplified and Efficient Method to Isolate Primary Human Keratinocytes from Adult Skin Tissue Zhenan Liu1, Jie Wen1,2, Xue Leng1, Qian Zhou1, Changkuo Zhou3, Huaqiang Zhao1, Xunwei Wu1,2 1Shandong Provincial Key Laboratory of Oral Tissue Regeneration and Laboratory for Tissue Engineering and Regeneration, School of Stomatology, Shandong University, 2Suzhou Institute of Shandong University, 3Department of Urology, Qilu Hospital of Shandong University Here we present a protocol to efficiently isolate primary human keratinocytes from adult skin tissues. This method simplifies the conventional procedure by using the ROCK Inhibitor Y-27632 in the inoculation medium to spontaneously separate epidermal cells from dermal cells.
Elemental-sensitive Detection of the Chemistry in Batteries through Soft X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy and Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering Jinpeng Wu1,2, Shawn Sallis2,3, Ruimin Qiao2, Qinghao Li2,4, Zengqing Zhuo2,5, Kehua Dai2,6, Zixuan Guo2,7, Wanli Yang2 1Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials, Stanford University, 2Advanced Light Source, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, 3Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Binghamton University, 4School of Physics, National Key Laboratory of Crystal Materials, Shandong University, 5School of Advanced Materials, Peking University Shenzhen Graduate School, 6School of Metallurgy, Northeastern University, 7Department of Chemical Engineering, University of California-Santa Barbara Here, we present a protocol for typical experiments of soft X-ray absorption spectroscopy (sXAS) and resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) with applications in battery material studies.
Electric Field-controlled Directed Migration of Neural Progenitor Cells in 2D and 3D Environments Xiaoting Meng*1, Wenfei Li*2,3, Fraser Young1, Runchi Gao3, Laura Chalmers3, Min Zhao3, Bing Song1 1School of Dentistry, Cardiff Institute of Tissue Engineering & Repair, Cardiff University, 2Shandong Qianfoshan Hospital, Shandong University School of Medicine, 3Dermatology and Ophthalmology Research, Institute for Regenerative Cures, University of California at Davis This protocol demonstrates methods used to establish 2D and 3D environments in custom-designed electrotactic chambers, which can track cells in vivo/ex vivo using time-lapse recording at the single cell level, in order to investigate galvanotaxis/electrotaxis and other cellular responses to direct current (DC) electric fields (EFs).
