Genetic manipulations of dissociated rodent neurons provide translatable
models for disease-driven phenotypes. Cilia are cellular antenna with a role in neuronal maturation and function often perturbed in neurodevelopmental disorders. Efforts for automated imaging of these microscopic protrusions are crucial given the role of cilia in the brain. We developed a cell-based assay to monitor cilia in rat hippocampal neurons using lentiviral-mediated shRNA-based ge…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
