Expression and reconstitution of the bioluminescent Ca2+ reporter aequorin in human embryonic stem cells, and exploration of the presence of functional IP3 and ryanodine receptors during the early stages of their differentiation into cardiomyocytes Chan, Harvey Y. S.; Cheung, Man Chun; Gao, Yi; Miller, Andrew L.; Webb, Sarah E. (Springer, 2016-07-19)In order to develop a novel method of visualizing possible Ca2+ signaling during the early differentiation of hESCs into cardiomyocytes and avoid some of the inherent problems associated with using fluorescent reporters, ...
A novel-type luciferin from Siberian luminous earthworm Fridericia heliota : structure elucidation by spectral studies and total synthesis Petushkov, Valentin N.; Dubinnyi, Maxim A.; Tsarkova, Aleksandra S.; Rodionova, Natalja S.; Baranov, Mikhail S.; Kublitski, Vadim S.; Shimomura, Osamu; Yampolsky, Ilia V. (2014-02)We report structure elucidation and synthesis of the luciferin from the recently discovered luminous earthworm Fridericia heliota. This luciferin represents a key component of a novel ATP-dependent bioluminescence system. ...
The giant eyes of giant squid are indeed unexpectedly large, but not if used for spotting sperm whales Nilsson, Dan-E; Warrant, Eric J.; Johnsen, Sonke; Hanlon, Roger T.; Shashar, Nadav (BioMed Central, 2013-09-08)We recently reported (Curr Biol 22:683–688, 2012) that the eyes of giant and colossal squid can grow to three times the diameter of the eyes of any other animal, including large fishes and whales. As an explanation to this ...
