Using xCELLigence RTCA Instrument to Measure Cell Adhesion
[Abstract]  Cell adhesion to neighbouring cells and to the underlying extracellular matrix (ECM) is a fundamental requirement for the existence of multicellular organisms. As such, the formation, stability and dissociation of cell adhesions are subject to tight control in space and time and perturbations within the sophisticated adhesion machinery are associated with a variety of human pathologies. Here, we outline a simple protocol to monitor alterations in cell adhesion to the ECM, for example, following ...

Metabolic Heavy Isotope Labeling to Study Glycerophospholipid Homeostasis of Cultured Cells
[Abstract]  Glycerophospholipids consist of a glycerophosphate backbone to which are esterified two acyl chains and a polar head group. The head group (e.g., choline, ethanolamine, serine or inositol) defines the glycerophospholipid class, while the acyl chains together with the head group define the glycerophospholipid molecular species. Stable heavy isotope (e.g., deuterium)-labeled head group precursors added to the culture medium incorporate efficiently into glycerophospholipids of ...

Physical Removal of the Midbody Remnant from Polarised Epithelial Cells Using Take-Up by Suction Pressure (TUSP)
[Abstract]  In polarised epithelial cells the midbody forms at the apical cell surface during cytokinesis. Once severed, the midbody is inherited by one of the daughter cells remaining tethered to the apical plasma membrane where it participates in non-cytokinetic processes, such as primary ciliogenesis. Here, we describe a novel method to physically remove the midbody remnant from cells and assess the possible effects caused by its loss (Bernabé-Rubio et al., 2016).
