Corneal Epithelial Abrasion with Ocular Burr As a Model for Cornea Wound Healing Solja Kalha1, Alison Kuony1, Frederic Michon1,2 1Helsinki Institute of Life Science, Institute of Biotechnology, University of Helsinki, 2School of Medicine and Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine, Keele University This protocol describes a method to inflict an abrasion to the ocular surface of the mouse, and to follow the wound healing process thereafter. The protocol takes advantage of an ocular burr to partially remove the surface epithelium of the eye in anaesthetized mice.
Online Size-exclusion and Ion-exchange Chromatography on a SAXS Beamline Martha E. Brennich1, Adam R. Round2,3, Stephanie Hutin4 1Structural Biology Group, European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, 2European Molecular Biology Laboratory, 3School of Chemical and Physical Sciences, Keele University, 4Groupe de Microscopie Electronique et Méthodes, Institut de Biologie Structurale The determination of the solution structure of a protein by small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) requires monodisperse samples. Here, we present two possibilities to ensure minimal delays between sample preparation and data acquisition: online size-exclusion chromatography (SEC) and online ion-exchange chromatography (IEC).
Flow Cytometry Protocols for Surface and Intracellular Antigen Analyses of Neural Cell Types Vishal Menon1, Ria Thomas1,2, Arun R. Ghale1,3, Christina Reinhard1, Jan Pruszak1,4 1Emmy Noether-Group for Stem Cell Biology, Department of Molecular Embryology, Institute of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Freiburg, 2Spemann Graduate School of Biology and Medicine and Faculty of Biology, University of Freiburg, 3School of Life Sciences, Keele University, 4Center for Biological Signaling Studies (BIOSS), University of Freiburg We provide a detailed description of a protocol for flow cytometric analysis of surface antigens and/or intracellular antigens in neural cell types. Critical aspects of experimental planning, step-by-step methodological procedures, and fundamental principles of flow cytometry are explained in order to enable neurobiologists to exploit this powerful technology.
