Mouse Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) were isolated from mouse (Strain C57BL⁄6) embryos at Day E3.5. Before cryopreservation, the cells were tested for viability (>70% post-thaw viability), their ability to remain undifferentiated when cultured on mouse feeder cells as assayed by marker expression (Oct4, SSEA-1, Nanog) and their ability to differentiate into embryoid bodies and express markers indicative of three germ layers (Ectoderm: (+) for β3-tubulin and nestin, Mesoderm: (+) for smooth muscle actin, Endoderm: (+) for AFP). Cells were cryopreserved at passage 20 (P20). For optimal growth perfo...

Neurotrophins (NGF, BDNF, NT-3, and NT-4) and their transmembrane receptors (TrkA, TrkB, TrkC, and P75NTR) play important roles in the regulation of neuronal and non-neuronal cell proliferation, differentiation, survival, and death. Neurotrophin signaling also mediates higher-order neuronal activities, such as learning, memory, and behavior. Alterations in neurotrophin levels and their receptors have been implicated in neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's disease, as well as psychiatric disorders. Neurotrophins propagate their signal through activating mult...

Jak/Stat signaling pathways play essential roles in the cellular responses to distinct cytokines. One of the Jak/Stat pathways, Jak2/Stat5, mediates cell proliferation in response to Interleukin - 3 (IL - 3), prolactin, erythropoietin (Epo), and granulocyte - macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM - CSF). JAK2 gene knockout causes embryonic lethality due to defective erythropoiesis, suggesting that the Jak2/Stat5 pathway plays an important role in red blood cell formation. The recent discovery of an activating mutation in JAK2 (V617F) present in a high percentage of myeloproliferative diseas...

The ER-Tracker™ Red dye is cell-permeant, live-cell stain that is highly selective for the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) that when stained using the protocol provided, the staining pattern is partially retained after fixation with formaldehyde. This stain consists of the green-fluorescent BODIPY® TR dye and glibenclamide. Glibenclamide (glyburide) binds to the sulphonylurea receptors of ATP-sensitive K + channels which are prominent on ER; the pharmacological activity of glibenclamide could potentially affect ER function. Variable expression of sulphonylurea receptors in some specialized cell typ...
