Thermosensitive ion channel expressed in the sperm of a fresh water teleost fish

In this paper, we demonstrate the endogenous presence of one specific thermosensitive ion channel, namely Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid family member subtype 1 (TRPV1) in the sperm cells collected from freshwater teleost fish, Labeo rohita. By using western blot analysis, fluorescence assisted cell sorting (FACS) and confocal microscopy; we confirm the presence of this non-selective cation channel.

Protocol for a mammalian cell-based assay for monitoring HIV-1 protease activity

In our laboratory, we have developed an assay in T-cells with a robust read-out to monitor the proteolytic activity of HIV-1 Protease (PR). The assay utilizes the prototypic transcription factor Gal4, which consists of the N-terminal DNA-binding domain and the C-terminal trans-activation domain. The assay is based upon (1) introduction of PR in between the two Gal4 domains to obtain a PR/Gal4 fusion protein and (2) utilization of the enhanced Green Fluorescent Protein as reporter of PR activity.
