Viscoelastic Characterization of Soft Tissue-Mimicking Gelatin Phantoms using Indentation and Magnetic Resonance Elastography Yuan Feng1, Suhao Qiu1, Yu Chen1, Runke Wang1, Zhao He1, Linghan Kong1, Yi Chen1, Shengyuan Ma1 1School of Biomedical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University This article presents a demonstration and summary of protocols of making gelatin phantoms that mimic soft tissues, and the corresponding viscoelastic characterization using indentation and magnetic resonance elastography.
Structure-Based Simulation and Sampling of Transcription Factor Protein Movements along DNA from Atomic-Scale Stepping to Coarse-Grained Diffusion Chao E*1, Liqiang Dai*1,2, Jiaqi Tian3,4, Lin-Tai Da4, Jin Yu5,6,7 1Beijing Computational Science Research Center, 2Shenzhen JL Computational Science and Applied Research Institute, 3School of Medical Informatics and Engineering, Xuzhou Medical University, 4Key Laboratory of Systems Biomedicine (Ministry of Education), Shanghai Center for Systems Biomedicine, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 5Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of California, Irvine, 6Department of Chemistry, University of California, Irvine, 7NSF-Simons Center for Multiscale Cell Fate Research, University of California, Irvine The goal of this protocol is to reveal structural dynamics of one-dimensional diffusion of protein along DNA, using a plant transcription factor WRKY domain protein as an exemplary system. To do this, both atomistic and coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations along with extensive computational samplings have been implemented.
Isolation, Culture, and Adipogenic Induction of Neural Crest Original Adipose-Derived Stem Cells from Periaortic Adipose Tissue Yiding Qi*1, Xiang Miao*2, Lian Xu3, Mengxia Fu3, Shi Peng4, Kailei Shi5, Jun Li4, Maoqing Ye5, Ruogu Li1 1Department of Cardiology, Shanghai Chest Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 2Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health, Shanghai Institute for Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 3Shanghai Key Laboratory of Hypertension, Shanghai Institute of Hypertension, Ruijin Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, 4Department of Cardiology, Shanghai General Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, 5Department of Cardiology, Shanghai Key Laboratory of Clinical Geriatric Medicine, Huadong Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University We present a protocol for the isolation, culture, and adipogenic induction of neural crest derived adipose-derived stem cells (NCADSCs) from the periaortic adipose tissue of Wnt-1 Cre+/-;Rosa26RFP/+ mice. The NCADSCs can be an easily accessible source of ADSCs for modeling adipogenesis or lipogenesis in vitro.
