In Vivo Monitoring of Circadian Clock Gene Expression in the Mouse Suprachiasmatic Nucleus Using Fluorescence Reporters Long Mei1,2, Cheng Zhan2, Eric Erquan Zhang2 1PTN Joint Graduate Program, School of Life Sciences, Peking University, 2National Institute of Biological Sciences, Beijing This newly developed fluorescence-based technology enables long-term monitoring of the transcription of circadian clock genes in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of freely moving mice in real-time and at a high temporal resolution.
A Standardized Method for Measuring Internal Lung Surface Area via Mouse Pneumonectomy and Prosthesis Implantation Zhe Liu1,2, Siling Fu2,3, Nan Tang2 1Department of Life Sciences, Peking University, 2National Institute of Biological Sciences, Beijing, 3Graduate School of Peking Union Medical College Internal lung surface area (ISA) is a critical criterion for assessing lung morphology and physiology in lung diseases and injury-induced alveolar regeneration. We describe here a standardized method that can minimize the measurement bias for ISA in both lung pneumonectomy and prosthesis implantation mouse models.
