Generation of a Humanized Mouse Liver Using Human Hepatic Stem Cells Ran-Ran Zhang*1, Yun-Wen Zheng*1,2,3, Hideki Taniguchi1 1Department of Regenerative Medicine, Graduate School of Medicine, Yokohama City University, 2Department of Advanced Gastroenterological Surgical Science and Technology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Tsukuba, 3Regenerative Medicine Research Center, Jiangsu University Hospital Here, we present a novel humanized mouse liver model generated in Alb-toxin receptor mediated cell knockout (TRECK)/SCID mice following the transplantation of immature and expandable human hepatic stem cells.
Concentration of Metabolites from Low-density Planktonic Communities for Environmental Metabolomics using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy R. Craig Everroad*1, Seiji Yoshida*2, Yuuri Tsuboi1, Yasuhiro Date3, Jun Kikuchi2,3,4, Shigeharu Moriya1,2 1Biosphere Oriented Biology Research Unit, RIKEN Advanced Science Institute, 2Graduate School of Nanobioscience, Yokohama City University, 3Advanced NMR Metabomics Research Team, RIKEN Plant Science Center, 4Graduate School of Bioagricultural Science, Nagoya University A method for metabolite extraction from microbial planktonic communities is presented. Whole community sampling is achieved by filtration onto specially prepared filters. After lyophilization, aqueous-soluble metabolites are extracted. This approach allows for application of environmental metabolomics to trans-omics investigations of natural or experimental microbial communities.
