- Fabricating spatially functionalized 3D-printed scaffolds for osteochondral tissue engineering March 26, 2021Three-dimensional (3D) printing of biodegradable polymers has rapidly become a popular approach to create scaffolds for tissue engineering. This technique enables fabrication of complex architectures and layer-by-layer spatial control of multiple components with high resolution. The resulting scaffolds can also present distinct chemical groups or bioactive cues on the surface to guide cell behavior. However, […]Paula Camacho, Matthew Fainor, Kelly B. Seims, John W.

- High-yield purification of exceptional-quality, single-molecule DNA substrates February 24, 2021Single-molecule studies involving DNA or RNA, require homogeneous preparations of nucleic acid substrates of exceptional quality. Over the past several years, a variety of methods have been published describing different purification methods but these are frustratingly inconsistent with variable yields even in the hands of experienced bench scientists. To address these issues, we present an […]Yue Lu, Piero Bianco
- Optimization of small-scale sample preparation for high-throughput OpenArray analysis February 1, 2021OpenArray is one of the most high-throughput qPCR platforms available but its efficiency can be limited by sample preparation methods that are slow and costly. To optimize the sample workflow for high-throughput qPCR processing by OpenArray, small-scale sample preparation methods were compared for compatibility with this system to build confidence in a method that maintains […]Neeta A.

- Using a variant of the optomotor response as a visual defect detection assay in zebrafish February 1, 2021We describe a visual stimulus that can be used with both larval and adult zebrafish (Danio rerio). This protocol is a modification of a standard visual behavior analysis, the optomotor response (OMR). The OMR is often used to determine the spatial response or to detect directional visuomotor deficiencies. An OMR can be generated using a […]Matthew K. LeFauve, Cassie J.

- Visualization of subdiffusive sites in a live single cell January 30, 2021We measured anomalous diffusion in human prostate cancer cells which were transfected with the Alexa633 fluorescent RNA probe and co-transfected with enhanced green fluorescent protein-labeled argonaute2 protein by laser scanning microscopy. The image analysis arose from diffusion based on a “two-level system”. A trap was an interaction site where the diffusive motion was slowed down. […]Zeno Földes-Papp, Gerd Baumann, Long-Cheng Li
- Malakoplakia, a malignant mimic September 2, 2020Malakoplakia is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects multiple systems, most commonly the urogenital tract. Its clinical presentation is often non-specific, but is typically characterized by recurrent urinary tract infections and haematuria. We report a rare case of intravesical malakoplakia mimicking an aggressive transitional cell carcinoma both in its clinical presentation and in its macroscopic […]
