It includes protocols for bat capture and dissection, tissue preservation, and cell culturing of bat tissue.
Investigating Protein-protein Interactions in Live Cells Using Bioluminescence Resonance Energy Transfer Pelagia Deriziotis*1, Sarah A. Graham*1, Sara B. Estruch1, Simon E. Fisher1,2 1Language and Genetics Department, Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, 2Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour Interactions between proteins are fundamental to all cellular processes. Using Bioluminescence Resonance Energy Transfer, the interaction between a pair of proteins can be monitored in live cells and in real time. Furthermore, the effects of potentially pathogenic mutations can be assessed.
