Characterization of a Transgenic Pig Model Carrying Green...
Unfortunately, little is known about the interactions of proteasomal subunits with other sperm proteins or structures. Through a joint effort between Dr. Prather, Dr. Wells, and Dr. Sutovsky’s labs, a novel transgenic pig model with Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) fused to the 20S proteasomal core subunit ?-type 1 (PSMA1) was created, hypothesizing that the PSMA1-GFP fusion protein will be incorporated into functional sperm proteasomes.

Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer Microscopy
In this article, we review techniques that allow us to visualize these protein interactions as they occur in living cells. The cloning of genes from marine organisms that encode fluorescent proteins provides a way to tag and monitor the intracellular behav-ior of expressed fusion proteins. The genetic engineering of jelly-fish green fluorescent protein (GFP) and the recent cloning of a sea anemone red fluorescent protein (RFP) have provided fluorescent tags that emit light at wavelengths ranging from the blue to the red spectrum.
Plant cell imaging
Welcome to the Ehrhardt laboratory at the Carnegie Institution for Science. We investigate plant cell development and morphogenesis, utilizing live cell imaging techniques to visualize the organization and dynamic behaviors of molecules and organelles. Problems of special interest include how cells generate asymmetries and specific shapes. Currently we are investigating how the cortical microtubule cytoskeleton acquires organization and how this organization in turn functions to guide patterns of cell growth and division.

Original Article
Although the transcript from Runx2 distal promoter is majorly expressed in osteoblasts, the promoter failed to direct green fluorescent protein (GFP) expression to osteoblasts. To find the regulatory region, we generated GFP reporter mice driven by a bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) of Runx2 locus, and succeeded in the reproduction of endogenous Runx2 expression. By serially deleting it, we identified a 343 bp enhancer, which directed GFP expression specifically to osteoblasts, about 30 kb upstream of the distal promoter.

Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) was originally isolated from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria and is used to fluorescently label cells and organisms, as well as specific proteins when incorporated into a chimeric “fluorescent fusion protein”. Subsequently, numerous variants of GFP with altered characteristics, such as shifted excitation and emission spectra, have been generated, and fluorescent proteins from a variety of other organisms have been identified.

Commercially available NMDAR subunit specific antibodies from Cell Signaling and Abcam were shown to not be very specific and can skew results. The purpose of this investigation was to create a green fluorescent protein (GFP) tagged NR2B expressing vector that could be used to more accurately measure NMDAR2B trafficking. Following the successful creation of the GFP tagged NMDAR2B vector, the transfection protocol for this specific vector was optimized.
