Spore Adsorption as a Nonrecombinant Display System for Enzymes and Antigens Rachele Isticato1, Ezio Ricca1, Loredana Baccigalupi2 1Department of Biology, Federico II University, 2Department of Molecular Medicine and Medical Biotechnology, University of Naples "Federico II" This protocol focuses on the use of bacterial spores as a "live" nanobiotechnological tool to adsorb heterologous molecules with various biological activities. The methods to measure the efficiency of adsorption are also shown.
Assessing the Influence of Personality on Sensitivity to Magnetic Fields in Zebrafish Alessandro Cresci1, Rosario De Rosa2,3, Claudio Agnisola4 1Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, Department of Ocean Sciences, University of Miami, 2Department of Physics, Monte S. Angelo (MSA) Campus, University of Naples Federico II, 3Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN), 4Department of Biology, MSA Campus, University of Naples Federico II We describe a behavioral protocol designed to assess how zebrafish’s personalities influence their response to water currents and weak magnetic fields. Fishes with the same personalities are separated based on their explorative behavior. Then, their rheotactic orientation behavior in a swimming tunnel with a low flow rate and under different magnetic conditions is observed.
