This protocol presents how to quantify AAV transduction efficiency in mouse retina using digital droplet PCR (dd-PCR) together with small scale AAV production, intravitreal injection, retinal imaging, and retinal genomic DNA isolation. In this video, we will show how to quantify AAV transduction in mouse retina using digital droplet PCR…

Phospholipase A2 inhibitor and LY6/PLAUR domain-containing protein PINLYP regulates type I interferon innate immunity

Significance Interferon (IFN)-mediated antiviral responses serve as the first line of the host innate immune defense against viral infection. Here we identify a previously uncharacterized protein designated phospholipase A2 inhibitor and LY6/PLAUR domain-containing protein (PINLYP), which is essential for embryonic development and plays an important role in type I IFN…

Establishment of sunitinib-resistant CDX model of ccRCC

Introduction Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for approximately 2–3% of all malignant tumors, and its prevalence is rising. Metastatic RCC accounts for 25–30% of all RCC cases, and has an exceedingly poor prognosis.1 In 2020, among approximately 430,000 newly discovered cases of RCC, 179,000 died.2 Clear cell renal cell carcinoma…

Single-cell delineation of lineage and genetic identity in the mouse brain

STICR lentiviral library preparation and validation We synthesized a high-complexity lentivirus barcode library that encodes approximately 60–70 million distinct oligonucleotide RNA sequences (STICR barcodes). STICR barcodes comprised three distinct oligonucleotide fragments cloned sequentially into a multicloning site within the 3′ UTR of an enhanced green fluorescent protein (eGFP) transgene under…

How to get normalized count table from DESeq?

How to get normalized count table from DESeq? 1 Hi, I’m using Deseq compare differential abundance. Here is my code: ds.all <- phyloseq_to_deseq2(ps0.infant.pbs, ~ sample_type) geoMeans <- apply(counts(ds.all),1,gm_mean) ds.all <- estimateSizeFactors(ds.all,geoMeans = geoMeans) dds.all <- DESeq(ds.all,fitType = “local”) Then as the results I got 8 ASVs that showed significantly different….

Epistasis shapes the fitness landscape of an allosteric specificity switch

Computational design Protein modeling and design was performed with Rosetta version 3.5 (2015.19.57819)35,37. Python and shell scripts for generating input from Rosetta and analyzing from Rosetta are available at: github.com/raman-lab/biosensor_design The high-resolution TtgR structure co-crystalized with tetracycline was selected as the starting point for computational design (PDB: 2UXH)28. The structure…

Selection of DNA Aptamers Recognizing EpCAM-Positive Prostate Cancer b

Introduction Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the most common genitourinary system malignant tumor in men worldwide. In Asian countries, many patients with PCa are often diagnosed at an advanced stage maybe mostly because of a large population base with relatively backward economic development and imperfect cancer screening system of…

MYO10 drives genomic instability and inflammation in cancer

INTRODUCTION Genomic instability often refers to the existence of a variety of DNA alterations, ranging from single nucleotide changes (such as base substitution, deletion, and insertion) to chromosomal rearrangements (e.g., gain or loss of a segment or the whole chromosome) (1). Loss of genome stability can lead to early onset…

P. aeruginosa isolated from patients with aural infections

Introduction Aural infections are one of the most common diseases of the head and neck and are predominantly caused by bacterial infections of the ear canal. Several studies from different countries have reported that Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the most common pathogen isolated from ear canal secretions, followed by Staphylococcus aureus.1…
