Visualization of Cell Complexity in the Filamentous Cyanobacterium Mastigocladus laminosus by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
Authors:  Dennis J. Nürnberg, Giulia Mastroianni, Conrad W. Mullineaux and Graham D. McPhail, date: 12/05/2014, view: 3623, Q&A: 0
The cyanobacterium Mastigocladus laminosus (M. laminosus) is one of the most morphologically complex prokaryotes. It forms long chains of cells that are connected via septal junction complexes; such complexes allow diffusion of ...

Phototaxis Assays of Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 at Macroscopic and Microscopic Scales
Authors:  Annik Jakob, Nils Schuergers and Annegret Wilde, date: 06/05/2017, view: 954, Q&A: 0
Phototaxis is a mechanism that allows cyanobacteria to respond to fluctuations in the quality and quantity of illumination by moving either towards or away from a light source. Phototactic movement on low concentration agar or agarose plates can be ...

Measurement of Glucose-6-phosphate Dehydrogenase Activity in Bacterial Cell-free Extracts
Authors:  Haydar Karakaya and Kübra Özkul, date: 10/05/2016, view: 2242, Q&A: 0
Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH) (EC 1.1.1.49) is the first enzyme of the oxidative pentose phosphate cycle and catalyses the conversion of glucose-6-phosphate (G6P) to 6-phosphoglucono-δ-lactone and transfers one electron to NADP+ ...

Freeze-fracture-etching Electron Microscopy for Facile Analysis of Yeast Ultrastructure
Authors:  Takuma Tsuji and Toyoshi Fujimoto, date: 09/20/2017, view: 682, Q&A: 0
We describe a streamlined method that enables the quick observation of yeast ultrastructure by electron microscopy (EM). Yeast cells are high-pressure frozen, freeze-fractured to cut across the cytoplasm, and freeze-etched to sublimate ice in the ...
