Errors as a Means of Reducing Impulsive Food Choice Manuela Sellitto1,2, Giuseppe di Pellegrino2 1Department of Biological Psychology, Justus-Liebig-Universität Giessen, 2Dipartimento di Psicologia, Università di Bologna Giving in to temptation of tasty food may result in long-term overweight problems. This protocol describes how to reduce imprudent preference for edible commodities during hypothetical intertemporal choices in women by associating them with errors.
Isolation of Sertoli Cells and Peritubular Cells from Rat Testes Sudhanshu Bhushan1, Ferial Aslani1, Zhengguo Zhang1, Tim Sebastian1, Hans-Peter Elsässer2, Jörg Klug1 1Institut für Anatomie und Zellbiologie, Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen, 2Institut für Zytobiologie und Zytopathologie, Philipps-Universität Marburg Primary Sertoli cells are required for studying testis-immune privilege, signal transduction during inflammation or infection, and utilization of their immunoprotective properties. Here we describe an enzyme-based protocol for the isolation of highly purified primary Sertoli cells and peritubular cells from rat testes.
Videomorphometric Analysis of Hypoxic Pulmonary Vasoconstriction of Intra-pulmonary Arteries Using Murine Precision Cut Lung Slices Renate Paddenberg1, Petra Mermer1, Anna Goldenberg1, Wolfgang Kummer1 1Institute of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Justus-Liebig-University Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) is an important physiological phenomenon by which at alveolar hypoxia lung perfusion is matched to ventilation. The major vascular segment contributing to HPV is the intra-acinar artery. Here, we describe our protocol for the analysis of HPV of murine pulmonary vessels with diameters of 20-100 μm.
