AMPA Receptor Trafficking Shapes the Synapse

admin October 23, 2013

  By Simon Hackett Retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) are neurons located near the ganglionic cell layer of the retina. These cells receive impulses from photoreceptor cells via bipolar and amacrine cells mediated by AMPA-class glutamate receptors (AMPA receptors). Two types of these receptors exist: receptors lacking GluA2 subunits, permeable to calcium ions, and those with a… Continue Reading »

New Antibody Search Engine: CiteAb

admin March 18, 2013

Proteintech is working with a new antibody search engine called CiteAb to ensure antibodies are easy to find and that researchers can quickly see where they have been cited in the past. CiteAb lists over 800,000 antibodies from 50 companies, along with the publications that cite them. CiteAb is the world’s largest independent citation-ranked antibody… Continue Reading »


Unlocking Human MND Models:Do Skin Cells Hold the Key?

admin November 30, 2012

A matter of decades ago, the idea of turning a humble skin cell into a live, firing nerve cell would have seemed impossible; perhaps deemed the result of reading too many science fiction novels. Yet in a paper published earlier this year in PNAS, an international collaboration of researchers has done exactly this — essentially… Continue Reading »
