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 »

Antibody Comparison Sites: How to Find Your Perfect Antibody Faster

admin January 18, 2013

Antibodies are indispensable biomedical research tools underpinning an ever-increasing number of bioassays. As such, it is hard to find a life science publication lacking any antibody-based technique in the present literature. A wealth of biotechnology companies exist to provide these essential laboratory resources in pre-made form (reducing costs and acquisition times significantly). From hundreds of smaller vendors… Continue Reading »
