Exploiting Live Imaging to Track Nuclei During Myoblast Differentiation and Fusion Giorgia Careccia*1,2, Federica Colombo*1,3, Mario Tirone1, Alessandra Agresti1, Marco E. Bianchi1,2, Samuel Zambrano*1,2, Emilie Vénéreau*1 1Chromatin Dynamics Unit, Istituto di Ricovero e Cura a Carattere Scientifico (IRCCS) San Raffaele Scientific Institute, 2Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, 3Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering, Politecnico di Milano Skeletal muscle differentiation is a highly dynamic process, which particularly relies on nuclear positioning. Here, we describe a method to track nuclei movements by live cell imaging during myoblast differentiation and myotube formation and to perform a quantitative characterization of nuclei dynamics by extracting information from automatic tracking.
Immunoglobulin Gene Sequence Analysis In Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia: From Patient Material To Sequence Interpretation Andreas Agathangelidis*1, Lesley Ann Sutton*2,3, Anastasia Hadzidimitriou1, Cristina Tresoldi4, Anton W.

From a 2DE-Gel Spot to Protein Function: Lesson Learned From HS1 in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Benedetta Apollonio1,2, Maria Teresa Sabrina Bertilaccio1, Umberto Restuccia3, Pamela Ranghetti1, Federica Barbaglio1, Paolo Ghia1,4, Federico Caligaris-Cappio1,4, Cristina Scielzo1 1Division of Molecular Oncology, IRCCS, San Raffaele Scientific Institute, 2 Here we describe a protocol that couples two proteomic techniques, namely 2-dimensional Electrophoresis (2DE) and Mass Spectrometry (MS), to identify differentially expressed/post-translational modified proteins among two or more groups of primary samples. This approach, together with functional experiments, allows the identification and characterization of prognostic markers/therapeutic targets.
