The mouse has emerged as an animal model for many diseases. At IRO, we have used this animal to understand the development of many eye diseases and treatment of some of them. Precise evaluation of vision is a prerequisite for both these approaches. In this unit we describe three ways to measure...
Lipid absorption begins with the digestion of dietary triacylglycerol and ultimately results in the secretion of triacylglycerol in chylomicrons into the lymphatics. Additionally, the intestine also secretes numerous proteins and peptides involved in lipid and lipoprotein metabolism in response...
Skeletal muscles consist of muscle fibers that can differ in both composition and functional characteristics. These three types of muscle fibers, broadly categorized as slow, fast IIa, and fast IIb muscle fibers, express characteristic myosin heavy chain proteins and have different metabolic and...
The generation of transgenic mice by DNA microinjection is a powerful tool to investigate the molecular regulation of gene expression, development, and disease. The power of this technology is that foreign DNA can be introduced into every cell of a developing organism, and the phenotypic impact...
Personnel performing surgery on mice commonly lack formal medical training and most training in mouse surgery focuses on the mechanical skills required for a procedure with less emphasis on perioperative techniques. Consequently, a basic concept that underpins successful surgery, aseptic...
Oscillations in hippocampal local field potentials (LFP) reflect the coordinated, rhythmic activity of constituent interneuronal and principal cell populations. Quantifying changes in oscillatory patterns and power therefore provides a powerful metric through which to infer mechanisms and...
