A Novel Tenorrhaphy Suture Technique with Tissue Engineered Collagen Graft to Repair Large Tendon Defects

In this paper, we present an in vitro and in situ protocol to repair a tendon gap of up to 1.5 cm by filling it with engineered collagen graft. This was performed by developing a modified suture technique to take the mechanical load until the graft matures into the host…

A cell-based phenotypic library selection and screening approach for the de novo discovery of novel functional chimeric antigen receptors

Cell lines and culture Unless stated otherwise, all tumor target cell lines were sourced from the ATCC via LGC Standards. Human endogenous mesothelin (MSLN)-positive target cell lines H-226 (lung carcinoma, MSLN+, ATCC® CRL-5826™) and AsPC-1 (ATCC CRL-1682), and MSLN-negative Raji control cells (ATCC CCL-86) were cultured in RPMI-1640 Glutamax (Life Technologies,…

Process Development for the Production and Purification of Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV)2 Vector using Baculovirus-Insect Cell Culture System

In this protocol, AAV2 vector is produced by co-culturing Spodoptera frugiperda (Sf9) insect cells with baculovirus (BV)-AAV2-green fluorescent protein (GFP) or therapeutic gene and BV-AAV2-rep-cap infected Sf9 cells in suspension culture. AAV particles are released from the cells using detergent, clarified, purified by affinity column chromatography, and concentrated by tangential…

Digital Droplet PCR Method for the Quantification of AAV Transduction Efficiency in Murine Retina

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….

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…
