[Abstract]  Metals are essential in many biological processes, including oxygenic photosynthesis. Here we described a method to measure the metal pool in whole cells and thylakoids, including the bioactive pool in intact photosynthetic protein complexes in the model oxygenic cyanobacterium Synechocystis PCC6803. In the first part of the protocol, whole cells and thylakoid membranes are carefully prepared, in which the total metal concentrations are measured by inductively coupled plasma triple-quadrupole mass spectrometry (ICP-QQQ-MS). In the second part of the protocol, isolated thylakoids are solubilized to release the integral membrane proteins and the metal binding protein complexes. These intact photosynthetic protein complexes are subjected to size exclusion chromatography (SEC) and ... [摘要]  金属在许多生物过程中是必不可少的,包括含氧光合作用。 在这里我们描述了测量全细胞和类囊体中金属库的方法,包括模型含氧蓝藻PCH6803中完整光合蛋白复合体中的生物活性库。 在方案的第一部分中,仔细制备全细胞和类囊体膜,其中通过电感耦合等离子体三重四极杆质谱(ICP-MS / MS)测量总金属浓度。 在该方案的第二部分,分离的类囊体被溶解以释放完整的膜蛋白和金属结合蛋白复合物。 将这些完整的光合蛋白复合物进行尺寸排阻色谱(SEC),并通过ICP-MS / MS进行连接分析尺寸分离的复合物中的金属结合。

【背景】氧光合作用的过程需要金属,因为它们在光合电子传递链中作为辅因子和催化剂的基本功能。光合装置需要Fe-S簇,血红素桥Fe和非血红素Fe形式的铁(Fe),可溶性移动电子载体蛋白质质体蓝素中的铜(Cu),叶绿素中的镁(Mg), ...

Adapting the Smart-seq2 Protocol for Robust Single Worm RNA-seq

[Abstract]  Most nematodes are small worms that lack enough RNA for regular RNA-seq protocols without pooling hundred to thousand of individuals. We have adapted the Smart-seq2 protocol in order to sequence the transcriptome of an individual worm. While developed for individual Steinernema carpocapsae and Caenorhabditis elegans larvae as well as embryos, the protocol should be adaptable for other nematode species and small invertebrates. In addition, we describe how to analyze the RNA-seq results using the Galaxy online environment. We expect that this method will be useful for the studying gene expression variances of individual nematodes in wild type and mutant backgrounds. [摘要]  大多数线虫是小蠕虫,缺乏足够的RNA用于常规的RNA-seq协议,而没有汇集成千上万的个体。 我们已经调整了Smart-seq2协议来排序单个蠕虫的转录组。 虽然针对Steinernema carpocapsae和Caenorhabditis elegans幼虫以及胚胎开发,但该方案应该适用于其他线虫物种和小无脊椎动物。 另外,我们介绍如何使用Galaxy在线环境分析RNA-seq结果。 我们预计这种方法将有助于研究野生型和突变体背景个体线虫的基因表达差异。

【背景】低输入RNA-seq方案和扩增试剂盒,例如Smart-seq(Takara Bio,USA,Inc)和SuperAmp(Miltenyl Biotec,Inc),已经越来越多地开发和商业化,作为对低输入RNA-基于小组织,单一微生物和单细胞的seq研究。这些研究经常探索并解决特定群体(例如细胞群体,复杂组织或微生物群体)的个体中的异源基因表达。针对微生物(如线虫)的低输入RNA-seq方案的改进和适应将通过允许在单一线虫水平上分析基因表达异质性而极大地有益于线虫领域。在这里,我们已经调整了单细胞RNA-seq方案Smart-seq2(Picelli等人,2013和2014; Trombetta等人,2014),对于单线虫RNA测序。我们成功地在昆虫寄生线虫Steinernema ...
